Marc Schnau posted this on Google+ with the comment, “This should work properly with any language one is trying to learn. And not only while learning languages, Maybe this is valid for every kind of learning one will do.”
After watching this video, I think he’s completely correct. I know that the speaker in the video is correct with the idea of using shorter, intense sessions versus longer ones. One of my cousins is a personal trainer, and this is one of the methods he endorses with exercising, so the speaker is correct about it working with physical exercise of larger muscles. But Marc is right too–this applies to any kind of learning, not just with languages.
This video proved to be helpful to me, as there are events going on with my life that are leading me to try to figure out what I need to be learning next.
What do you think? Do you think this is hype, or do you think there’s some validity to this approach for learning anything, not just languages?
