#019 Is English Changing You?

Transcript:

Hi everyone!

I’m Georgiana, founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.

In this episode:

 I’d like to talk about how speaking a different language can change your personality.

 Later, a cool mini-story to practice your English speaking.

Let’s get started!

So, did you know that speaking a different language can change your personality?

Yes, you heard me well! Studies show that depending on the language you speak; your personality can be affected.

Studies show that speaking two or more languages can lead to a split personality.

They say that many speakers have completely unique identities in each of the languages they speak.

Apparently, the way you speak impacts the way you think, and it influences everything from how you make decisions to how you perceive color.

Therefore, language is much more than just communication. Since the way you speak clearly affects the way you think.

I can speak several languages, besides English. When I speak in German, for example, I pay attention to the way I interact with people, the way I organize my ideas and my thoughts, my emotions. All of these become profoundly influenced by the language I’m speaking.

For example, whenever I speak in German, I become more rational.

On the other hand, if I have a conversation in Spanish, I can observe myself behaving differently. It’s like being a different person. In this case, I feel more relaxed, more easy-going.

To acquire a new self, you’ll need to immerse yourself in the culture. You can achieve that by taking a trip abroad, watching movies, interact with a native speaker or, listening to the Speak English Now podcast.

Another key factor is how well you know the language. Of course, it’s not the same if your level’s low. The more you dominate the language, the more it influences your personality.

      Daar Georgiana,
      Your english course (I listen them on spotify) are great! Love the way with the repetition leads to consolidation. (Just like musician)

      In the train I answer your questions in my mind, on the platform I answer them out loud.

      Having a bit of dyslexia it is just perfect!
      Would be great if u started a French or russian course too! 🙂

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.
