Threshold moments in learning languages

“The experience of reading without reference to word order, once students “get it,” can be exhilarating, like being freed from a kind of gravity.”

A great description of a “threshold moment” in learning. I think these always happen in learning a new language, if you follow it far enough. Maybe if all students learned a language, they would become more open to threshold moments in their other fields?
