Your Lingo Lab

This is an educational group where we discuss tips and provide support to language students. Welcome to Your Lingo Lab!

This is first and foremost an educational site, where we provide support to language students. Studying another language is scientifically proven to enhance the wiring of the brain. The learning process creates new neural pathways in the brain of any learner, younger or older, which boost and sharpen the way we think and how we process information. Effectively, the language-learning process helps

Kia ora & konnichi wa to our followers,

The public side of this page has been fairly dormant over the last year, but thank you to our loyal students who have supported the Your Lingo Lab mission during that time. We've been working studiously in the background to bring another arm to Your Lingo Lab - a new online learning platform will be ready to launch soon. We'll keep you updated on what's happening closer to the time.

Mā te wā & またね

Behind the scenes, we’ve been working long hours to take the Your Lingo Lab programme to a much wider audience. It’s time to make this course available to the many more people looking to learn Japanese, those looking for a proven system that SUPPORTS DYSLEXIC learners, and those wanting merely to construct the amazing NEW NEURAL PATHWAYS that come from learning a new language.

Our website goes live this FRIDAY, Novermber 6th, so be sure to visit our site: www.yourlingolab.com

Spread the word. We have a lovely new online learning platform that is streamlined, simple to use & interactive.

The Your Lingo Lab Japanese course is so much more than a language course. It is something so many will benefit from ⛩

Japan is planning to open its borders to 8 countries in the next few weeks. And guess what? The Northern Hemisphere winter is the perfect time to visit. My daughter and I spent a month there over December and January, and we would both go again in a heartbeat.Did I mention skiing in Japan? World class, best snow, amazing food! ⁠

Destination 1 - Kyoto 京都 - Former Imperial Capital⁠

金閣寺 Kinkakuji - Buddhist Temple, set in an idyllic part of Kyoto city. Unlike Ginkakuji, the Silver Pavilion posted this morning, this structure has been rebuilt numerous times since the early 15th century. The top level is gilded inside and out with pure gold leaf, and the apex is capped with a golden phoenix. ⁠

Need some super fun and straightforward before you go? Message or phone via the contacts on this page to see how we can fast-track you to mastering Japanese, for travel or just for the fun of it. ⁠

Loving your support, my friends! Many thanks and know that your 'like' means that you're inadvertently creating an opportunity for a dyslexic learner to find out how truly gifted their brain really is.

So, does learning a second language help us develop our multitasking skills or does it just confuse us? Research at Western Sydney University in Australia outlines how using multiple languages in our daily lives might well benefit our brains at any age.

The benefits of learning an additional language are not limited to our childhood years when our brains absorb phenomenal amounts of information; language learning can assist brain function throughout our later years, also, and there is evidence that multiple-language use on a regular basis may help delay the onset of degenerative diseases like dementia or Alzheimer’s. In 2013, researchers from the University of Edinburgh concluded that a group of bilingual patients had developed dementia around “four and a half years later than the monolingual patients, strongly suggesting that [being bilingual] has a deep impact on neurological structures and processes in the brain.”

The overall main advantage to a second language learner is the skills developed that allow you to analyse, to control, direct and manage your attention, and the ability to plan. It also helps the brain to develop so that it can filter out irrelevant information so that we can focus on what’s important. Second language learners learn to multi-task between languages. Essentially, as the brain activates to find a word in the right language, it is also constantly managing the interference of the languages in order to find the right word at the right time. This in turn helps us filter when we are working amongst distractions.
Bilingualism gives you more neurons to process information with, and this assists in optimal brain function. As a bilingual learner, you develop sharper metalinguistic awareness - the ability to think about language as abstract connected units. Say, for example, the letter H in English, which sounds like “n” in Russian, and has the vowel sound “e” in Greek; a language learner more readily understands this concept.

Because language learning and use is arguably the most complex behaviour we human beings engage in, it involves many levels. We use speech sounds, syllables, words, grammar, sentences and syntax. It truly is a workout for a broad brain network. The take-away is that ultimately, multilingual individuals tend to be better at analysing their surroundings, multitasking, and problem solving. What’s not to love?

Language Acquisition

Welcome to Your Lingo Lab! This is first and foremost an educational site, where we discuss tips and provide support to both students learning Japanese, and to the parents of dyslexic learners who are wanting their children to experience using Japanese to enhance the wiring of the brain. The language learning process creates new neural pathways in the brain of any learner, younger or older, which boost and sharpen the way we think and how we process information. Effectively, the language-learning process helps us develop stronger analytical and decoding strategies. The way the Japanese language is structured makes it super accessible, particularly to students who are dyslexic in English. The aim is to provide an extra-curricular learning platform online, where students and adults can see just how straightforward land fun earning another language can be. Join us on the learning journey - there's so much to discover and our brains are craving learning opportunities.
