hello Jillian Norfolk here from doing

ingress comm yoga ready to see this much

longer cuz the time is ticking but and

the lights go off aiya finally it's

taken about two and a half months today

I have finally finally brought back to

the point where I can run ten kilometres

in less than an hour absolute peak when

I was at my absolute running best I was

doing ten kilometres in about 45 minutes

the best race I've done was at 20k and I

did that it was about 90 minutes I think

and then I got out of practice and when

I came here last year I would admit that

my pink when I say that actually it's

not really comparable because I'm hit I

was running on the fight streets of

Tokyo well-paved easy to run on not

exactly the same as running out here in

good old island but I got out of

practice and then last year I ran the

marathon and then I really got out of

practice and I kind of stopped running

for about six seven months and then I

got back into it Feder recently and it's

taken taking three months to get back to

my sub one hour taking them into well I

have done it congratulations to me give

me a big pat on the back all that good

stuff thing is is I need to be able to

repeat that four times if I want to

break the four hour marathon this time

next month so I still got a little way

to go but the reason I'm here talking to

you right now is because there is a good

parallel ladies and gentlemen boys and

girls for the English language speaking

of English language here a lot of people

worry that say they live in an

english-speaking country say they are

currently doing something in English

they're engaged in a big project in

English they're working in English and

something in their life is going to

change which means that they are not

gonna be in touch you English quite so

much because of that now they're worried

that they're going to somehow forget

their English

first of all environment is something

that you've actually got to make

yourself and anybody can be in touch of

English as much as they want

to be in their day to day life fire

media films TV YouTube podcast radio all

that good stuff so really it's it's kind

of almost a moot point in a way but even

if you were to completely 100% lose

touch with the English language become

so ridiculously hideously busy or focus

on something else like myself in my life

right now I mean language learning the

improvement of my Japanese as a second

language it's certainly not priority for

me at the moment

I was kind of learning Taiwanese I'm

gonna be perfectly honest and say I got

almost nowhere with that because I hit

PhD thesis and I pretty much just played

all my time into that I digress but the

point is even if you did get to the

point where you are not in touch with

the language at all what will happen is

you won't forget it per se research in

psychology psycholinguistics tells us

that we never forget language that we've

learned but what will happen is it will

kind of go to sleep it will almost

become deactivated essentially a brain

will say we ain't using this in the

moment so let's let's clear it out the

way so that it's not draining precious

energy resources so that we can we can

you know reallocate that that to

something else so your English will kind

of go to sleep but it's like when you

wake up from a deep sleep when you then

start using English again you will feel

slow and sluggish like I do every single

morning before I have my first two or

three cups of coffee

and once you then get back into the

swing of things you get back in touch of

English you get using the language again

you get back into your study routine it

will wake right back up in no time

it's significantly faster and easier to

wake a language up than it is to learn

it in the first place so worrying about

forgetting your English lunch if I

learned it is you shouldn't worry I

worrying about it is a total waste of

time I mean it's because you you won't

forget it and reactivating a language

it's gone to sleep is an absolute piece

of cake you do of course have to learn

it properly in the first place to be

able to wake it up though and all that I

can help you head over to doing English

comm such free training check out my

free training I'll teach you the five

key changes you need to make to your

day-to-day English improvement routine

to see the fastest results check it out

I'll see you on the other side this is

me Judy in Northbrook I've got to get

back to my run because the timer is

still a tickin and yeah I haven't

actually finished it so ladies and

gentlemen boys and girls bye bye
