I don't know how effective is this in learning new words of a new language, but I'm kind of curious of doing it, if I can.... perhaps one of these days. Haha. What do you think about this guys?

Yeahlonl is dead for me too, but I have tried listening to learning tales whilst sleeping in the past. It didn't help at all but perhaps of you had a good level to begin with it would help get you thinking in the second language instead of your native tongue

I think there was a thread for something like this


I guess that concept of learning works, but only for some people. I think you have to be in a certain mindset for that, I doubt everyone can sleep learn by default

Please update the link, I'd love to read it.


This might not be completely the same but kinda related, I found some Youtube music that (as some people claim) encourages learning - or maybe improvement in learning. I forgot the actual term but they said it was scientifically proven.

Everyday is a learning journey. Keep going!

My thoughts goes the same way, mindset is probably the key in order for this type of learning to be effective.

I finally got to read the OP article. All it shows is that, at a very basic level and with very careful timing/preparation, new foreign words and their translations could be associated during a midday nap with associations stored into wakefulness. So this type of sleep learning is possible, which frankly isn't a big surprise to me. 


But does it make sense to try to recreate these conditions and learn this way? I think that the answer is still a big "NO", as shown in the article I linked to above.
