takibari Posted December 18, 2015 Report Share Posted December 18, 2015 I was reading an article on what happens in the brain when learning a language, and came across a study conducted by Kara Morgan-Short of the University of Chicago. Basically, their study tried to compare the inner workings of the brain with regards to methods of language learning. Anyway, in their research, they have two sets of groups; one studying language by way of explanation of the rules of the language, while the other group is learning the language by way of immersing in the language. Their study revealed that studying by immersion is more effective than the former. For all of you, I'm wondering if it's the same. Do you learn better when you immersed in the target language or when you study and know the rules of the language?
