In this video, Steve addresses the role of memory in language learning. He contends that memory plays a secondary role in the process of learning a language. More essential is tacit knowledge and pattern recognition.
Tacit knowledge includes skills such as driving a car or riding a bike. These skills cannot be acquired simply by reading instructions; they must be developed through repetitive exposure and regular interaction.
Likewise, pattern creation and recognition contributes significantly to language learning. In the video, Steve provides several useful examples from his own experience.
He concludes by outlining his “Golden Trinity of Language Learning”:
1. Attitude2. Time on task3. Attentiveness
These essential tips for learning languages do not rely on memory. Rather, Steve advises the viewer to be tenacious, persistent and attentive to patterns in language. Repetitive exposure to the components of a new language – through flash cards, for example – will reveal things one didn’t see before.
Thank you, Mr. Kaufmann!
