Selective Attention

In class today we talked about selective attention and how when we learn a new language we have selective attention because our brain has trouble focusing on everything at the same time. We might focus on the pronunciation of a word but then forget the word that should come next in our sentence, or we might focus on getting a sentence correct but really butcher the pronunciation. We tend to have selective attention when learning languages and that is normal. To illustrate the concept of selective attention, he showed us multiple videos that I really enjoyed that proved it. The one below was one of the videos. Even if you have seen a similar video to this one, watch it anyway.

Much love, B
