Learning foreign languages more easily
As a result of ongoing globalisation, command of foreign languages is very important. The gift for languages is first and foremost the ability to adjust one’s ear to the frequencies of a foreign language.
The ear is normally receptive to a wide range of frequencies and can detect a variety of rhythms. During development, however, the ear adjusts to a way of hearing that is conditioned by its mother tongue. Different languages prefer different frequency ranges. When speaking, the English use frequencies from 2,000 to 12,000 Hertz in particular, the French frequencies from 100 to 300 Hz and 1,000 to 2,000 Hz, the majority of Slavonic speakers from 100 to 12,000 Hz, and German speakers from 100 to 3,000 Hz. As a result, there is an “English“, a “French“, a “Slavonic“, or a “German“ ear, as people can only speak frequencies that they hear (Tomatis rule).
It is therefore easy to understand why the French for example find it difficult to learn other languages. For them, and for the Italians, the preferred frequency ranges of the language have a rather narrow bandwidth. People from countries in which Slavonic languages are spoken are, on the other hand, at an advantage. The frequency ranges of the approximately 20 Slavonic languages cover a greater bandwidth. This explains why the Eastern Europeans have a gift for languages.
In order to be able to learn a language well, therefore, one first has to hear the preferred frequency ranges of a language well.
In addition, each language has a typical latency, which is necessary to utter a syllable and hear oneself.
The Brain Activator “opens“ the ear to a foreign language. With specially designed programmes the ear can accustom itself to frequencies, rhythm and intonation. The Tomatis listening training programme makes it possible to learn a language faster and speak it better.
