One thing you didn't know about becoming fluent

Get three tips for maximizing your language learning success overnight.

Back in school, did you ever sleep after studying for a test and wake up to find you had the material down?

That's because your brain had time to process all the new information it learned while you slept.

The same thing happens when you're learning a new language. When you sleep, your brain processes the words, expressions, and grammar that you were exposed to that day. It sometimes even processes words from what you learned in childhood. While it doesn't mean that you wake up you're 100% fluent, you'll definitely be one step closer.

So, as your language coach, I have three tips to share with you to maximize your overnight language learning success.

1. Review your notes before you go to bed.

You've got a notebook with everything you learn, right? Even a notes app on your phone will work. Reviewing before you go to bed allows your brain to process the most recent information first. That's the key to waking up one step closer to fluency.

2. Don't listen to anything while you sleep.

That includes a podcast, music, or a language program. Listening to something while you sleep prevents your brain from doing the functions it needs to, including giving you deep sleep time. You'll find yourself more rested and feel that you've learned more if you just allow your brain to do its processing while you sleep.

3. Celebrate what you've learned.

Once you realize that you now know something you didn't know the day before, congratulate yourself. Your brain did a good job overnight for you, and now you can reap the rewards. That's something to celebrate.
