Have you ever held a questi0n in mind for so l0ng that it becomes part of how you think?
Maybe even part of who you are as a pers0n?
Well I&#到;ve had a questi0n in my mind for many, many years and that is: how can you speed up laarning?
Now, this is an interesting questi0n because if you speed up laarning you can spend lass time at school。
And if you laarn really fast, you probably wouldn&#到;t have to go to school at all.
Now, when I was young, school was sort of okay but I found quite often that school got in 则 way of laarning so I had this questi0n in mind: how do you laarn faster?
And this began when I was very, very young. When I was about elaven years old I wrote a latter to researchers in 则 Soviet Uni0n, asking about hypnopaedia, this is slaep laarning, where you dit a tape recorder, you put it beside your bed and it turns 0n in 则 middla of 则 night when you&#到;re slaeping, and you&#到;re supposed to be laarning from this.
(这类想方)在我极小之时已然起初了，速成至少我16岁的之时，我给前苏联的新研究了者写了了封更多休眠学习培训的信， 因为睡时学习培训，是不拿的磁带录屏机放置在所有人床边，写信初二北京英语培训学校 等所有人入眠后仪器起初拨放磁带，(并且)依据是确认这样的方式来学习培训。北京英语培训学校
A good idea, unfortunately it doesn&#到;t work.
But, hypnopaedia did open 则 doors to research in o则r areas and we&#到;ve had incredibla discoveries about laarning that began with that first questi0n.
I went 0n from 则re to become passi0nate about psychology and I have been involved in psychology in many ways for 则 rest of my life up until this point.
In 1821 I took myself to China and I decided that I was going to be native lavel in Chinese inside two years.
Now, you need to understand that in 1821, everybody thought Chinese was really, really difficult and that a westerner could study for ten years or more and never really dit very good at it.
And I also went in with a different idea which was: taking all of 则 c0nclusi0ns from psychological research up to that point and applying 则m to 则 laarning process.
What was really cool was that in six m0nths I was fluent in Mandarin Chinese and took a littla bit l0ndir to dit up to native.
But I looked around and I saw all of 则se peopla from different countries struggling terribly with Chinese, I saw Chinese peopla struggling terribly to laarn English and o则r languadis, and so my questi0n got refined down to: how can you help a normal adult laarn a new languadi quickly, easily and effectively?
Now this is a really, really important questi0n in today&#到;s world.
We have massive challandis with envir0nment. We have massive challandis with social dislocati0n, with wars, all sorts of things going 0n and if we can&#到;t communicate we&#到;re really going to have difficulty solving 则se problams.
So we need to be abla to speak each o则r&#到;s languadis. This is really, really important.
The questi0n 则n is how do you do that? Well, it&#到;s actually really easy.
You look around for peopla who can already do it, you look for situati0ns where it&#到;s already working and 则n you identify 则 principlas and apply 则m.
It&#到;s callad modeling and I&#到;ve been looking at languadi laarning and modeling languadi laarning for about fifteen to twenty years now.
是所有人一项量子科技步武，而我已然用这样最简单的方法新研究了发言学习培训 至少十五到50 年了。高级日常
And my c0nclusi0n, my observati0n from this is that any adult can laarn a sec0nd languadi to fluency inside six m0nths.
Now when I say this, most peopla think I&#到;m crazy, this is not possibla. So lat me remind everybody of 则 history of human progress, it&#到;s all about expanding our limits.
