    In this article: https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/tips-to-learning-a-second-language-as-a-family/ (that you can also find in our Notifications) I read the following:

    ‘In an examination of Spanish second-language learners, the researchers found that after minimal training, the brain activity between sentences that relied on grammatical features unique to each language resembled that of native speakers.

    In other words, the brain activity within an English speaker saying, writing, and reading: “Las flores son hermosas,” or “the flowers are beautiful,” is identical to that found in the brain of a Spanish speaker, despite the fact that this target sentence uses grammatical features not found in English, such as gender and number agreements.

    “I think it’s cause for optimism for university foreign language instruction. It shows that, even with limited exposure in the college classroom, learning can happen quite quickly and efficiently,” said KU linguistics professor Alison Gabriele, the co-author of the paper, to Language Magazine.’

    Thas is an interesting and bold statement. I would be interested to know what practicing language trainers think of it. (see also: https://www.languagemagazine.com/2021/07/01/adults-can-learn-new-languages-quickly/ )

    Ich betreibe ein Fitnessstudio und musste eine Reihe von informativen Beiträgen über Ernährung und Trainingsroutinen verfassen. Ich war mir nicht sicher, wie ich den richtigen Ton und die richtige Tiefe finden sollte, also suchte ich nach professioneller Hilfe beim Schreiben. Dabei bin ich auf hausarbeit ghostwriting gestoßen. Sie hatten viele gute Rückmeldungen und boten genau das an, wonach ich gesucht hatte. Sie haben sogar ein Treueprogramm für wiederkehrende Kunden, was ziemlich toll ist. Die von ihnen produzierten Inhalte waren ein Hit in unseren sozialen Medien und haben mehr Kunden in unser Studio gelockt.
