Wanna learn English? Get someone to bonk you in the head! / Chcete se naucit perfektne anglicky? Nechte se bouchnout do kebule!

crazy face/yahoo image Do you want to hear something crazy? Well, the Radio Praha magazine wrote about this Czech speedway rider, Matej Kus, who got a very serious head injury during one of his races in Great Britain. When he woke up in the hospital he spoke a PERFECT English although he never learned English in his life! The head injury also caused him to think that he was an accent coach at the BBC. He spoke with more of a “posh accent” – as the local Englishmen said – for about 48 hours and after that the magic disappeared….he wasn’t a BBC coach anymore but an average 18-year old Czech kid who didn’t speak a word of English. This little “magic” actually has a name in today’s world: the Susac’s syndrome. It is a disease of the small blood vessels which attacks mostly the brain. This autoimmune disorder – where the body attacks its own healthy tissue – can eventually lead to mental disorders . Susac’s syndrom was first documented in 1975 and it is characterized by a personality change and bizarre behavior. The body usually cures itself from it but it can take up to 5 years(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susac%27s_syndrome). So, I guess our racer boy was lucky…Anyway, in 2004 a similar case appeared; a woman from Bristol supposedly woke up one day speaking fluent French thinking she was living in Paris….

Chcete slyset neco neuveritelneho? Clanek v magazinu Radia Prahy pise o mladem zavodnikovi formule 1, ktery se skoro zabil pri jednom ze svych zavodu v Anglii. Po te, co se probudil na jednotce intenzivni pece s velmi vaznym zranenim hlavy, zacal na lidi kolem mluvit PERFEKTNI anglictionu a to se anglicky nikdy v zivote neucil! Toto zraneni ho take oblouznilo do takove miry, ze si myslel, ze je ucitelem prizvuku v BBC (??). Rodili anglicane usoudili, ze jeho prizvuk ma obrovskou uroven, a ze zni velmi nobl. Po 48-mi hodinach se ale cele kouzlo rozplynulo – Matej mluvil pouze rodilou cestionou – ani zlomek nobl anglicana v nem nezustal. Tato podivna “kletba” ma v dnesni dobe jmeno: Susakuv syndrom. Tato autoimuni nemoc ovlivnuje cevy nachazejici se zejmena v mozku, kde vlastni imunita tela napada zdrave tkane a to muze eventualne vest k mentalnim porucham. Susakuv syndrom byl poprve zdokumentovan v roce 1975 a je charakterizovan poruchami osobnosti a velmi zvlastnim chovanim pacientu. Telo se z toho vetsinou samo “vylize”, ale to muze trvat az 5 let ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susac%27s_syndrome). Tak si rikam, ze ten nas zavodnik mel docela stesti…Jinak dalsi podobny pripad tohoto syndromu byl dokumentovany v roce 2004, kde zena pochazejici z Bristolu se jednoho dne probudila, mluvici absolutne plynou francouzstinou a trvdila, ze pochazi z Parize.
