Have you tried sleep learning or hypnopaedia?

Many sites encourage sleep learning and offer courses that teach you foreign languages while you sleep.

Does it work?

Do you know a sleep learner?

If it works, even a little, it is worth trying, since we spend one third of our lives sleeping.

That's unbelievable, but if that works, would like to have a try
I prefer not to try it: since I study and work all day long, I really need to rest at night Emotion: big smile
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I personally don't believe in it. I thinks its just a marketing ploy to get money out of people that believe anything they read.
I remember reading it somewhere that when you sleep, your logical sense decreases and your creativity increases. That's why you sometimes have many strange and illogical dreams. I don't know whether it's true or not, but I really like this idea. Maybe I can come up with many interesting things when sleep. But I'm not sure about how to learn just by sleeping. I tried it several times, but the results were not very successful.
Hi guys,
those methods don't work, there's no scientific proof that sleep-learning works, but there's much evidence that you won't get any result. You sure can't learn, say, differential and integral calculus by sleeping! (if you sleep during class you won't learn anything, I guess... Emotion: rolleyes)
One thing is for sure: if you study before going to sleep, chances are you'll memorize more. So I believe that reading, practicing, or listening to some English before going to bed is much more helpful than doing so in the morning, for example. Learning about difficult subjects could be difficult because you might be tired at the end of the day, but reading a book or listening to some radio will sure help you improve your English. Emotion: smile

PS: reading the above post about creativity reminded me that if you practice English before going to bed, you are more likely to dream in English, sometimes.

This method really works. I "read" a dictionary before going to bed, it helps me... feel sleeply. Emotion: big smile

Just never help me dream in English though. Emotion: stick out tongue
At the beginning of this schoolyear, I dreamt in English once or twice a week but I just couldn't find out why. Now I'm trying to dream in English again but the result is not very successful. But I don't think reading before going to sleep could help, because I've done so several times.
Yap,

it's somewhat possible but gotta find the genuine one to teach us.

Through hypnosis it is possible.Once in the near history ( i forgot the date ) during a war American soilders were taught foreign language and were trained in more than a half of the required time.

Well, let me tell you about the greatest hypnotist ever in this world : Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimali, go for it and find more about him and many more....siddhashram.org
