The Psychology of Learning a Language

Your mindset makes or breaks your results when learning a language.

Today's post won't be about the practicalities of learning Dutch or using Learn Practice. It will go much deeper.

Today, we'll discuss your attitude toward learning, not only Dutch, but any skill you want.


Because your attitude determines your actions, and your actions determine your results.

Let's start with a question.

How Do You Feel When You Can't Answer a Question on Learn Practice?

If that's you, I have good news and bad news for you.

The bad news is that you have a fixed mindset, and that will disrupt your learning process.

The good news is that you can switch from fixed mindset to growth mindset.

What Does It Take to Switch from Fixed Mindset to Growth Mindset?

Sometimes, it's enough to learn about the difference between the fixed mindset and growth mindset.

In other cases, you have to make a conscious effort to make the switch.

How to do that?

  1. Become aware of your thoughts and feelings that come from the fixed mindset.
  2. Let them go and replace them with thoughts that come from a growth mindset.

Examples of Thoughts Based on Growth Mindset


You can apply the growth mindset to any skill in your life, not just learning a language. It's a fundamental factor in your success in life.

Do you want to learn more about the growth mindset? Read the book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck.

Do you want to develop a growth mindset? Write down the growth mindset thoughts on an index card and read them several times every day.
