Start off with the most difficult tasks to guarantee success! đŸ’Ș

Laborit’s Law – what does this have to do with language learning? đŸ€·â€â™€ïž

According to Laborit’s Law, we tend to avoid difficult tasks in favour of the easier, more enjoyable ones. Did you know that this psychological mechanism could have an impact on our ability to learn? When it comes to learning a new language, Laborit’s Law could be your invisible enemy, having you work on what you enjoy while leaving out the more complicated aspects of the language.  

Even if it doesn’t sound like much fun, starting with the difficult tasks can be beneficial on several levels, by: 

Developing a solid foundation of skills
When you tackle the most demanding aspects of a language from the outset, you master them more quickly. 

Boosting your self-confidence
When you overcome major obstacles, you feel more accomplished and motivated.

Saving time
Avoiding the difficult parts of a language can prolong the learning process. By tackling them from the outset, you’ll save time.

To get off to a good start with the more complex tasks, follow these three steps: 

1. Identify your language challenges
2. Set yourself a schedule  

3. Use the right tool – LLO.LU, of course 😉

Finally, Laborit’s Law reminds us that language learning, like many other skills, sometimes requires us to step out of our comfort zone.

Good luck with your learning, and don’t forget that every step you take towards difficult tasks brings you a little closer to linguistic success!
