Are drugs the answer to learning languages?

From the Guardian website:

“Scientists have discovered that drugs previously used to treat mood disorders can dramatically enhance your capacity to learn. If you could take a pill to boost your ability to learn a language, what are the moral, practical, social and medical implications? How else can these drugs be used? Do the benefits outweigh the risks?”

They’re having a debate on this in London during July, so if anyone in the area pops along and finds out what the magic pill is, you will let us know, won’t you! :wink:

Fascinating! I’d like to see the opposite as a headline. “Scientists have discovered that online mp3 courses previously used to learn languages can dramatically improve your mood.” :slight_smile:

:seren: :-))
