I've found this TedTalk to be extremely helpful. Especially the part where he mentions learning things that are relevant in your life. Many language classes teach you things that you'll never use, and so you forget them. If the vocabulary and grammar are important to YOUR life, you'll remember them better!

The video above makes perfect sense when we are confronted in an uncomfortable situation. We know the language to speak, we know how to communicate, and we know the kind of words we should be speaking but no matter how well educated you are, or how well you can speak in whatever language. Our mind knows that we cannot speak up when we are nervous! Just my 2 cents!

Have you ever had the thought when you hear someone speak in another language.... "When they speak Spanish do they hear English?" What makes the other person speaking Greek or Arabic naturally respond to one others word. What does English sound like to another person with a whole another different natural language? What do English people sound like to Spanish speaking people?
