  • ARE INTROVERTS

    BETTER LANGUAGE

    LEARNERS?

  • While traveling

    to Europe on

    business, I read

    Manfred

    Spitzer's book

    "Lernen" on how

    the brain learns!

  • I thought about

    the myth that

    extroverts

    make better

    language

    learners than

    introverts.

  • Our brain learns

    all the time. It

    can't do

    otherwise as

    long as it gets the

    right stimulus.

  • A motivated person, who

    spends enough time with

    interesting content, listening

    and reading, is sure to acquire

    the language.

    An extrovert may start

    speaking earlier than an

    introvert, but that won't

    matter in the long run.

  • VOCABULARY

    A large

    vocabulary and

    good

    comprehension,

    acquired through

    input, are the

    keys to fluency.

  • This is true for extroverts and introverts.
