Cynthia Hitz writes a great blog post about the difference between learning (rules, info etc) and acquisition (being able to use the language without thinking). She amkes the great point that you can “know” everything there is to know about _____ and still not be able to actually DO _____. Languages, unciycling, playing guitar…this is well worth a read.
