In this episode, I talk about how I discovered my propensity toward visual-spatial learning and how I was able to channel my strengths to learn languages more effectively.

Summary:

  • Every time you learn another language, it gets easier than the previous one you learned.
  • Your metalinguistic awareness increases as you do it more.
  • The main reason why things get easier is that you learn more and more about yourself – where your strengths and weaknesses are.
  • I was a complete failure before I learned that I was a visual learner.
  • Sequential learners prefer structure and syllabi – visual learners are more disorganized.
  • Visual learners also struggle with retaining audio-only material.
  • Rote memorization is a waste of time for visual learners.
