Have you ever forgotten the words of the native language, studying foreign? Research scientists at the University of Oregon in the U.S. indicate that people facing such a phenomenon, showing a mechanism adaptation of the brain to better memorization of new material. Scientists say that forgetting their native language is not connected with the fact that we have less to eat, and that the words of the mother tongue especially 'suppressed' by the brain as distractions in the study new language. Participants in the experiment, during the year to learn Spanish at a high level, asked for an hour to call things in Spanish. The longer the experiment lasted, the more difficult it becomes to the participants switch to his native English team of researchers. Researchers concluded that long-term naming of objects in a foreign language inhibits the rapid reproduction of the names of the same objects in their native language.

Do bilingual participants and those who have long been a good command of both languages, this phenomenon was not observed. Scientists agree that the suppression of existing knowledge in order to expedite the study of the new may look strange. However, they note that this is a very important mechanism in the early stages of language learning, where students have intentionally ignored the words in their native language and try to speak a new language. With increasing levels of proficiency This mechanism gradually turns off. International adoption also sheds some light on this question. Scientists who have studied language acquisition in children adopted by parents in the United States from other countries came to the conclusion that brought older child, quickly are learning a new language family, goes through the same stages as the child learns his native language. According to the researchers, children who are learning their native language, first spoken one word, as a rule – is a noun denoting ordinary objects.

With age, is more complex vocabulary and introduce new grammatical constructions. Scientists who have studied children adopted from China at the age of two to six years, found that they go through the same stages, using first a lot of nouns, but ignoring other grammatical forms. Similarly, at first they were saying a few words and then short monosyllabic sentences. None However, children for whom English was a second language, all these stages were much faster as a result they are easily caught up with their English speaking peers in the level of language development. All of these children as an integral part of the process occurred forgetting their native language. We are with you – not adopted children, so a complete forgetting their native language to us, fortunately, is not threatened.
