Fluent By Feeling: How Intuition Helps You Learn Languages

<blockquote>
<p>&quot;I don&#39;t know how I knew this word, I just knew it.&quot;</p>
</blockquote>

<p>Have you ever found yourself in a conversation where you <em>speak without thinking</em>?</p>

<p>In a moment like that, you trusted your gut. But how the heck does your GUT know another language?</p>

<p>In today&#39;s episode, Lindsay and I talk about the magic of using your <strong>language intuition</strong>. The episode is a fun discussion, and a bit of a search for answers. Join us to hear about</p>

<ul>
<li>the powerful ways your brain helps you develop a sense of what&#39;s correct </li>
<li>what your gut feeling has to do with whether you feel fluent in another language</li>
<li>how you can use your environment and mood to boost this sense of intuition in order to become a better speaker</li>
<li>training your language intuition by adding lots of input</li>
</ul>
