    I was just reading some articles related to learning while sleeping and there's 2 sides to the report. Some claim it's possible to learn while sleeping while others claim you can't.

    Have you ever learned anything while sleeping? I don't mind trying to learn a new language while sleeping since there's nothing to lose.

    We learn by repitition. If you listen to the same
    sleep-learning recording over and over while
    sleeping, it is likely that at least some of the
    info will be retained.

    It's possible to some extent.

    When I was younger, I went to french school even though my mother tongue was english, and I used to interact so often in french, that I started dreaming in french, and it became substantially more fluent after a few weeks.

    To some extent, that might be considered learning.

    I believe this depends on what you intend to learn. After seeing this in the American television programme "The Venture Brothers", I became curious to see if hypnop├Ždia was actually possible, so I tested it with a few German audiotapes over the course of a month.

    As for the results, let's just say my endeavour was not a successful one.
