Now there is no excuse not to learn a new language!

A new study has found that the brain can learn a new word in 15 minutes – without you even having to try!  Students who were exposed to a made up word which was played to them over and over again formed new brain connections which recognised the new word.  It also found that the brain learnt best when it was relaxed and not trying to remember anything at all!   Maybe those subliminal message tapes that you can play when you go to sleep are not so useless after all 🙂

It does show the benefits of exposing yourself to the language you are trying to learn though – through television, radio, music, movies, chat etc.  Even if none of it makes sense in the beginning, your brain is processing information without you even realising.
