Rosetta Stone is not using Spaced Repetition which makes it a way of learning that prone to forgetting stuff over the long term.

comment Is it possible to learn while sleeping?
For a lot of learning tasks beta waves are better than alpha waves. The idea that one should be in alpha for every task isn't supported by research.

comment Effect of treadmill desk on productivity
This is offtopic. When we talk about treadmill desks we usually aren't talking about fast speeds. We are talking about slow speeds and much more time than 3x30 per week.

comment What is a good algorithm for spaced review?
Anki is flexible enough that you can simply remove time limits. As a practical matter it however makes time to break tasks down into smaller chunks.

I think language learning is a clear part of life hacking in general. It's a topic that gets discussed on personal development/life hacking blogs. My life hacking proposal got merged into the Personal Productivity proposal. On meta on this website there's an agreement to broaden the scope. Even in the faq there written that 'learning' is a part of the website.
