Your brain faces a moment of uncertainty when you try to say something in a foreign language. Studying by only using input will skip this very important step in the process of learning. This can lead to you not being able to find that word that’s on the tip of your tongue.

They key is to force your brain to face this uncertainty. This is why opportunities for practicing output, such as trying to convey something in a foreign language, are so important.
