Is it possible to forget a native language ?

The way I see it is that the brain seems to keep the information and skills that you use on a daily basis ‘at the surface’ and puts the rest in a back drawer. So the longer the time is that you do not think about something, the further back it goes
Hi every one !
As you can read, Ioana is gradually losing her Rumanian language because she speaks and thinks in English all the time.
She jumps to the conclusion that If we are determined to learn a new language it is important to practise, even just 15-20 minutes a day can make a huge difference

Hi everyone,

As the quote says, I don't think you can actually forget a langue, and even less your native language, it just gets on the back burner. The linger it stays there the longer you'll need to regain all your skills.
So I agree with you Muriel, I think using it even 15 minutes a day is a good solution !
