anna3101 Posted November 9, 2015 Report Share Posted November 9, 2015 I don't mean that literally of course, but do you feel... different when you speak a foreign language?I've always felt that speaking another language slightly changed my personality - and mood. For some reason Spanish has an uplifting effect whenever I'm feeling down. When I speak English, I'm more self-confident than usual. I tend to me more critical towards everything when I speak French And I've just found out that actually, it's not just my impression - research seems to prove those things! Look here:http://www.newrepublic.com/article/117485/multilinguals-have-multiple-personalitieshttp://news.sciencemag.org/brain-behavior/2015/03/speaking-second-language-may-change-how-you-see-worldApparently, there's some evidence that speaking another language does change you in subtle but tangible ways. I find that very exciting.Do you have similar experience? What's your opinion? lushlala 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
