Since I have been studying English by myself, I have experimented a kind of phenomenon or shift in my personality well I’m not sure but definitely is something estrange. There are some studies related with this. It seems is something related with psychology.
I want to tell you what I am thinking and feeling about it. I think could be related with what you feel about that language and that new culture, Is like a new you acting and thinking but leaded over a new culture, what I feel about it is like your mind returns to that pure state it had when you started to learn your mother tong, when you were that cute baby with a clean mind and showing that pure soul ready to learn about the life.
