In this modern world, our lives are often so busy that we don’t make time to do the things we really want to do, like take up a new sport, try a new skill, or perhaps learn a new language.
But what if I told you that it's possible to learn a language while you sleep?
Would you make time then?
While it's believed that aiding your language learning is possible while you sleep, there’s no definite conclusion as to whether you can actually learn a language in its entirety.
Let's explore this a bit further…
One thing that is for sure is that you’re never going to go from a complete novice to a fluent speaker by learning during your sleep, but you may pick up a kind of basic knowledge or cement something that you’ve learnt during the day.
This was never going to be an easy question to answer, but I’m going to try and break it down for you into understandable, bite-sized chunks. And by the end of this text, you might be tempted to give it a go yourself!
