Biological determinants in language training can make a difference. Our human makeup consists of biological determinants, genetics and instincts. However, we are influenced heavily, which changes our behavior patterns, habits and so on. Now what in the word does this have to do with foreign language training, you may ask. Well, to answer your logical, yet not so logical question, it has everything to do with learning foreign languages.
When you start learning foreign languages, you will need to use ‘determinants” to change your behaviors. Clarifying, determinants are factors that ‘cause’ or influence something to happen. We see determinants often in mathematical quizzes, etc, as it is the elements that are used in many processes, such as solving equations simultaneously or studying linear to transform them to numerical values.
Now ask your question again, which by now you should see clearly how biological determinants apply to learning foreign languages, as do genetics, instincts and so on.
Determinants can affect the way we learn. Down through the years, it was evident during many studies that people have constraints in their learning behaviors that often hinder them from learning the same pattern in the same ways. For example, if you were taught how to use a computer and didn’t know anything about computers, the next lesson you would learn something new, yet your behavior patterns would change.
In short, we have to remove these restraints when desiring to learn a foreign language. WE have to see foreign language from all sides, since the sides change grammar, style and structure in a way that it will likely confuse you often if you cannot drop the restraints and show a willingness to listen, learn, write, study, etc. You want to learn how to form a common ground in your behaviors so that it becomes a habit, yet you want to keep your mind open to suggestions that just might lead you to successfully learning a new language.
Most people believe that traditional teaching and instrumental methods can condition the mind to learn effectively. This shows in our biological aspects, since when instruments join with tradition we often see patterns that fit our beliefs. Beliefs is something we become accustom to in time, and often holds firm in our personality when we believe what we have learned.
Take down this barrier, since you are building road blocks that will hinder you from learning effectively. Beliefs are our stronghold and are good, yet when you have no facts to back those beliefs, they will fall, just as you will fall until you use your instincts, logic and ability to explore to the fullest and reach beyond what you already know.
Learning is better accomplished when we use our abilities to observe and listen. Observing and listening alone will take you to doors you never thought you could open.
Put down those constraints and move forward to foreign language training, since only then will you find learning easier. The constraints within us, often hindering us from learning effectively, since we cannot remove in many instances, the influences that pushed us to believe something that just might not be the truth. I don’t want to change the tune and turn religious on you, but let me show you how behaviors are constrained by demonstrating something that has been taught for years. In many religions, they tell us we are going to “hell” if we are bad. This is something religious sectors from across the lands as taught us for generations, which some do not, but since most do, it is not uncommon to find people that believe this, despite the bible tells us otherwise. See the patterns and how something’s you believe may hinder you from learning effectively and finding positive light.
