Last week Marco asked how he could stop translating in his head.
This is a great topic.
A lot of people have problems with this…
And the feeling of being “slow” and “awkward” because of translating.
Luckily, the solution is quite simple.
But first… you’ve got to understand WHY it happens.
Which goes into detail about:
[+] Why you translate in your head (hint: imagine an old-fashioned set of scales)
[+] Why language is NOT like a light-switch that can be turned on and off (it’s actually more like Christmas lights)
[+] The difference between “strong” and “weak” languages (and why it matters)
[+] How to stop your brain to stop translating (it’s much easier than you think)
You’ll only be able to read the full article if you’re a Doing English+ member.
(However you do get a sample for free.)
The reason I’m sending this out to everybody…
Even if they aren’t members…
Is because I know a lot of people are interested in this topic.
So I want to let you know that this article is there. Just so you know.
This is also part of a new “Ask Julian” series…
… and you are, of course, welcome to ask questions (there’s details about this in the article).
