Learning Japanese While Sleeping – Does It Work?

In this article we will introduce a strange method to learn Japanese. Have you ever heard of learning a language while sleeping? That's right, in this article we are going to talk about how to learn Japanese while sleeping. Does it work?

The technique consists of sleeping listening to an audio in looping of phrases and words being pronounced in the language in which you are studying along with the Portuguese translation. Many find this technique absurd, but it really makes total sense.

The first time I heard this technique in action was while staying at a friend's house in Japan. He was a former Japanese league player and coached students at a small school in Borussia Dortmund in Hokkaido.

Me and my friend Roberto Pedraça kept making fun of him and bothering him, because even with headphones I could hear all the phrases being repeated in English and German. It was very funny and made it difficult for us to sleep.

Does Learning Japanese While Sleeping Really Work?

It was only recently that I started to apply this technique using some videos I found on youtube and that will be at the end of this article. Researching 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 which consist of repeatedly listening to phrases to mark and work on your brain both consciously and unconsciously. Why would it be any different with languages?

As the NLP study itself says, our brain works like a computer and does exactly what it says and hears. That's why nothing is more normal than forcing our brain to capture Japanese words and phrases during sleep.

Studies reveal that more than half of the people who applied this technique achieved results and say that their memory of words improved in 40%, being a great alternative to be used with Anki.

Unfortunately, nearly 70% of students who tried to learn new words while sleeping had no results. The technique only works to help improve words you already know, in the same way Anki does.

If you are already advanced in your studies of Japanese, you might want to download the audios of the videos on youtube in order to listen at night. It is possible to find audios of 10 hours, but they are repeated, so just download a normal audio and put it on looping.

When you have a background in the Japanese language, listening to audios while you sleep will help you formulate sentences, use grammar correctly and improve your pronunciation. It doesn't hurt to try this technique. This really works and has been scientifically proven.
