Welcome! My father spoke 8 different languages fluently and my mother about 6, two of which she learned in her 60s and 70s while living in South Korea and Nepal. Learning a language was always a topic of conversation in our house.
I’ve learned three languages in my life and have a fascination with how to learn a language quickly, I was excited to read this study about how hypnosis can help you learn a language faster and feature it on the podcast!

Episode 7 tells my father’s story
Episode 35 talks about Active Learning and Hypnosis
Duolingo is the language app I mentioned.
Three Ways to Learn a Language Quickly (besides Hypnosis)
1. Listen to the language playing in your sleep! I know this sounds very similar to hypnosis! And apparently it’s really effective. You retain more and learn it faster. See the Study by the Swiss Psychologists.
2. There’s a method by Tim Ferris of the “Four Hour Work Week” fame that is clear and easy to follow! I’ve had it posted on my bulletin board forever as a good reminder of what to do before traveling to a foreign country. You can Check it out Here.
3. Hire a tutor. My mom would do this in every country she moved to. She worked with a tutor once or twice a week to help her improve her skills and teach her new words, phrases, and slang. She always said knowing the slang (she called it “colloquialisms” but hey, it’s slang!) was more important than more formal speech.
