We all know how difficult it is to learn and get motivated to learn a foreign language but have you ever tried thinking in a foreign language??
Thinking in a foreign language is an important goal that brings you one step closer to becoming fluent. There is also the fact that language and culture are intertwined, and thinking in your target language is an essential part of being able to connect with the people you are trying to get to know.
But there is one more reason or perhaps motivational one, why you should consider thinking in foreign language. According to Boaz Keysar of the University of Chicago, people are prone to make more sound, less risky decisions if they are thinking in a language other than their native tongue. Dr Keysar wrote: ‘A foreign language provides a distancing mechanism that moves people from the immediate intuitive system to a more deliberate mode of thinking.’
Does that mean, speaking in a Second Language Make You Think More, or Feel Less??
