The secret ingredient to be brilliant.
So often people make things look easy. Great sports people, dancers, singers all make their art look like a walk in the park…and so do people who have mastered a second language (I am talking of bilinguals who were not brought up with a second language at home). You can find yourself gawping at them and their ability to converse fluently in different languages while you stumble to put together a single coherent sentence … and you wonder how they became so good. What amazing phenomenon managed to transfuse a whole second language into their brain?
I heard on the radio this morning (BBC Radio 2) that whenever you see someone showing mastery of a skill its:
“90% resilience – 10% brilliance.”
It’s practice, practice, practice. You have to put in the work and that is true even of brilliant multi-linguals. They have had to put in the work, spent time talking, reading, listening and practising their languages…until it looks effortless.
You have probably even experienced this yourself. Can you drive? I bet it seems easy, second nature, a walk in the park. I bet you can sing, talk and think about things as you drive. It’s a cinch!
My daughter is just beginning to drive and taking her first lessons. She’s like a newly born foal taking her first steps…the car judders and stalls and she looks panicked. I was exactly the same! But we all get to driving fluency (or most of us do!) through lessons and practice.
So if you want to look brilliant at languages – the good news is you are not missing the Brilliant Language Gene. You can be brilliant too…but you have to practice.
