In this article we will present a strange method for learning Japanese. Have you ever heard of learning a language during sleep? That’s right, in this article we’re going to talk about how to learn Japanese sleeping. Does it work?
The technique consists of sleeping listening to a looping audio of phrases and words being pronounced in the language in which you are studying along with the translation in Portuguese. Many find this technique absurd, but it really makes total sense.
The first time I heard this technique in action was while i was staying at a friend’s house in Japan. He was a former Japanese league player and trained students at a Borussia Dortmund school in Hokkaido.
Me and my Friend Roberto Pedraça kept mocking him and bothered, because even with a headset you could hear all the sentences being repeated in English and German. It was very funny and it got in the way of us sleeping.
Does Learning Japanese Sleeping really work?
It was only recently that I started applying this technique using some videos that I found on youtube and that will be at the end of this article. Researching on the subject I realized that the results are better when it comes to memorization.
There are several techniques such as meditation, hypnosis, biokinesis and NLP that consists of repeatedly listening to phrases to mark and work on your brain both conscious ly and unconscious. Why would it be different with languages?
As the nlp study even says, our brain functions as a computer and does exactly what it says and heard. That’s why nothing more normal than forcing our brains to capture Japanese words and phrases during sleep.
The studies reveal that more than half of the people who applied this technique achieved results and claim that their memorization of words improved by 40%, being a great alternative to be used with Anki.
Unfortunately almost 70% of students who tried to learn new words during sleep had no results. The technique works only to help improve the words you already know, in the same way as Anki.
If you are already advanced in Japanese studies, it may be interesting to download the audios of the videos on youtube in order to listen at night. You can find 10-hour audios, but they repeat themselves, so just download normal audio and loop.
When you have a Japanese language base, listening to audios while you sleep will help you formulate phrases, correctly use grammar, and improve pronunciation. It doesn’t hurt to try this technique. This really works and has been scientifically proven.
Funny youtube comments
Browsing videos to learn languages while I slept, we find ironic, sarcastic and funny comments. Best of all, it’s the memes that Brazilians invent. Let’s share some:
It works really, there's only one problem, my Internet was oscillating... Now I only speak English stuttering and randomly I speak "ifood."
Impressive before this audio I knew nothing in English, now I can not sleep too lol.
So you can sleep with ASMR when you can sleep and wake up bilingual
Until I learned but how I was sleeping I forgot
Learn Japanese awake already it's hard, imagine sleeping kkkkkk
