What a sober German has in mind...

in #science5 years ago

... then drunk on language. Well, not exactly drunk, but tipsy. And in holland.

Drank a little bit? Nothing, you better talk franglish. Or goldich?

British scientists have established...

It's funny!

And German helped them to amuse scientific audience.

The essence of the experiment is simple:

Fifty Germans who started learning Dutch were randomly divided into two groups. One offered a drink with alcohol, the other without.

The tipsy and sober participants then took part in a standardized discussion in Dutch. Everything was recorded and then evaluated by two experts-the Dutch, who did not know which of the subjects drank and who did not.

And lo! It turned out, the alcohol has done its job: took a dose of ALCO the Germans, according to experts, it is better and cleaner spoke Dutch.

So it is not surprising that we Russians drink abroad. English himself with the recall.
