Summary and my viewpoints about the Chapter 14 of “ The Third Ear “
When we learn a new language, if we can make good use of our “ The Third Ear “ (that is our body language sense and intuition sense about the exchange of meaning), learning will become more faster and easier.
Each language has its own unique accent, movements and expressions, even includes certain pace and rhythm. These are formed a cultural feature of a language.
When we learn a foreign language, paying a lot of attention to the non-verbal communication and mimicking it are very important.
We need to mimic and match the postures, movements, rhythms and even exclamations of the new language culture as much as possible.
In addiction, familiarity with ritual greetings is also indispensable, which will help us to close to the natives and establish friendly relationships.
