One of the most common struggles I hear from expats in Ecuador and Latin America that are trying to learn Spanish to better integrate into their new home, is that you have a bad memory and can’t seem to recall the words you know, when you need them.
So you find yourself having to learn them over and over again.
And basically just a waste of time.
But I’m here to tell you that regardless of your age or whatever other excuse you’re telling yourself, 90% of the time what it actually comes down to is how you are learning.
The old way of thinking is still the most prominent amongst learners and teachers to this day… but soon enough this will phase out because more and more people are realizing that it doesn’t work.
Because when you try to learn through rote memorization, single word flashcards without images, grammar exercises, etc. you’re working with your short-term memory.
So, it makes sense that you’re only going to get short-term results which means that you’re forced to continuously review the same things over and over as you try to force them into your memory.
This doesn’t work, or at least it takes a loooong, frustrating time.
The good news is, you can work with the long-term memory directly, when you activate your subconscious mind by focusing on understanding the overall message of meaningful forms of communication, (like music, videos, conversations, etc.)
The key here is to not let your analytical mind interfere because it interrupts the natural (subconscious) learning processes that we’ve all been born with.
This is something I teach in my 12-week fluency boot camp program and the results are beyond anything you could expect from a typical language program.
Because the words and structures become embedded in your mind, they become hardwired, just like your ability to ride a bike.
It’s not something you need to think about, you just hop on and go.
You can do the same with Spanish.
You don’t have to consciously translate every little word before speaking or understanding what’s being said.
If you approach new vocabulary and structures in the right way, you can begin to have Spanish thoughts that seem to come out of nowhere, right when you need them.
And this is what we help you achieve in my 12-week Spanish To Fluency Boot Camp program.
How do we do this?
-Neurolanguage coaching (get support and guidance from your Spanish coach and learn the neuroscience behind learning a foreign language in order to facilitate the learning process)
– Conversation practice sessions guided by my team of native speakers who know how to create a brain friendly learning environment so you can build the confidence needed to speak more & learn faster
– Personalized feedback through our conversation reviews
– Access to fun and interactive learning resources that are all designed to help you start thinking in Spanish so you don’t have to translate everything in your head first
In just 12 weeks Candace went from understanding native speakers about 30 minutes after the conversation was over.
To being able to comprehend in real time and even respond simultaneously, because she is no longer translating in her head.
