Even though I studied Spanish for years in school, I still struggle to use what I learned in any meaningful way. Sound familiar? Then you’re in the right place. Idahosa Ness is a teacher, a musician, and foreign language expert who created The Mimic Method, a system to learn languages faster and more effectively. Although the program sounds quite revolutionary when you compare it to most foreign language resources out there, it’s based on the way we naturally learn language through our everyday environment.

Our family travels quite a bit, so learning a second language is a big priority for us. I’m excited to deep dive into this process and ask all of my nerdy homeschool mom questions!

Episode Highlights from Idahosa Ness and the Mimic Method

  • Why the Mimic Method isn’t like the way you learned a foreign language in school
  • The best ways to activate and accelerate the language learning process
  • How listening to a foreign language may be all you need to really learn it
  • The way nursery rhymes help shape language processing skills
  • Why learning to speak isn’t the same process as learning to write (and the order to learn them in)
  • How to apply Mimic Method principles to learn multiple foreign languages
  • Why the Mimic Method works even for people who have a difficult time learning another language
  • The two advantages children have over adults when learning a language… but why adults can do it too!
  • Ways to give kids the foundational skills to learn a second language without formal foreign language instruction (yet)
  • And more!

This podcast is sponsored by Fabletics, my go-to place to get high quality athletic wear at affordable prices. Here’s a confession… as a busy mom, I pretty much live in athletic wear and joke that it’s my mom uniform. But I’m not really joking, because I live in leggings, sports bras, and cute tops because they are so versatile and comfy. My current favorite is the Fabletics Power Hold High waisted leggings which are great for holding and flattening the stomach (especially after all of my pregnancies). I get them in black and grey so they can go with tank tops for working out or cute tops when things need to be a little less casual. I’ve even worn these with boots and sweaters or cardigans for dressy events! Right now, you can get 2 pairs of their leggings, like my favorite power hold ones, for just $24 at fabletics.com/wellnessmama on your first order as a VIP. There’s never a commitment to order and always free shipping on orders over $49. Another quick tip: take their 60-second style quiz to get an idea of the best styles and fits for your body type and sign up for their emails to get access to secret deals and styles before they are released!

This podcast is brought to you by Four Sigmatic, a Finnish company bringing the everyday magic of mushrooms to our daily lives. If you visited my home, you’d notice my homemade coffee/tea bar in my kitchen. Above it hangs 8 wooden cups, called kuksas… one for each member of my family. These have become part of our family tradition as we often sip mushroom coffee or superfood elixers from them at breakfast or after dinner during family time. Wooden cup or not, I highly recommend all of the Four Sigmatic products and you’d also find every single one of them in my kitchen! Here’s how I incorporate them into my day: in the morning I will drink one of their mushroom coffee blends, the matcha, the coffee latte or mushroom mocha with chaga. Throughout the day I sip their chaga, cordyceps or lion’s mane elixirs on their own since these are all caffeine-free but have a host of benefits due including a major boost of antioxidants. Nighttime means their calming turmeric tea or reishi elixir with a splash of macadamia milk. Mom tip: I also always keep their activated charcoal lemonade on hand for the first sign for a stomach bug… my kids love it and charcoal always seems to help.

This episode is brought to you by Ritual Vitamins, which are specifically designed just for women. Ritual contains nine essential nutrients that most women don’t get enough of from just from food: vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin), folate, vegan D3, vitamin K2, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, boron, chelated iron and a proprietary form of magnesium. Ritual supplies them in forms that are easily absorbed and utilized, and all the capsules are vegan, gluten-free, allergen free and non-GMO. They have both a prenatal and a regular women multivitamin both designed specifically for women and synergistic for women hormones. Did you know that 40% of women can’t properly use folic acid due to an MTHFR gene variation? Ritual contains a natural form of folate and synergistic nutrients so the entire multi is more effective. In pregnancy especially, folate is vital… According to OBGYN Dr. Jason Rothbart, “most women don’t find out they are pregnant until around 4-7 weeks pregnant, which is past the first 28 days. In the first 28 days, the organs are rapidly forming. The neural tube (which becomes the central nervous system and vertebral column) is almost completely formed and closed by the end of 28 days.” The essential nutrient Folate helps promote healthy development neural tube.* This is why many doctors recommend taking a quality prenatal for several months before trying to get pregnant. Ritual makes it easy with both a prenatal and regular women multivitamin. Learn more about both at https://www.wellnessmama.com/go/ritual.

This episode is brought to you by Kettle and Fire bone broth and soups. I’ve used these products for years and always keep my pantry well stocked with their products. They have chicken, chicken mushroom and beef bone broths, which are great as a base for soups or even just sipped on their own, but they now also have tomato, butternut and miso soups which are often part of meals at our house. Their newest products, chili and thai chicken soup are whole meals on their own and make last minute dinner so easy at my house! Their broths are made from grass-fed and pastured animal bones and are a great source of collagen and amino acids like proline and glycine. I incorporate collagen in some form every day, and Kettle and Fire makes it tasty. Go to kettleandfire.com/wellnessmama and use coupon code WELLNESSMAMA20 for 20% off.
