Learning in your sleep

Today, foreign languages are a part of general education. If only learning them weren't so tedious! There is good news for those that have difficulties with them. For we learn most effectively in our sleep! Multiple scientific studies have arrived at this conclusion. And we can use this when it comes to learning languages. We process the day's events in our sleep. Our brains analyze new experiences. Everything that we've experienced is thought out once again. And the new content is reinforced in our brains. Things that are learned just before falling asleep are retained especially well. Therefore, it can be helpful to review important items in the evening. A different phase of sleep is responsible for different learning content. REM sleep supports psychomotor learning. Playing music or sports belongs in this category. In contrast, the learning of pure knowledge takes place in deep sleep. This is where everything we learn is reviewed. Even vocabulary and grammar! When we learn languages, our brain must work very hard. It has to store new words and rules. This is all played back once more in sleep. Researchers call this Replay Theory. However, it's important that you sleep well. Body and mind have to recuperate properly. Only then can the brain work efficiently. You could say: good sleep, good cognitive performance. While we're resting, our brain is still active… So: Gute Nacht, good night, buona notte, dobrou noc!
