When I start learning Japanese, I would hear Japanese say that they could visualize Characters in some conversations. I felt we did not do that in English and thus they probably did not do it in Japanese and these were exaggerations. But 4 years later, I saw the characters while involved in certain conversation, especially in puns and subtle play on words. Now I find that this way of thinking has affected how I think in English at times too. The "long term effects of instruction" [my 10 years of studying Japanese] have crossed over to other areas of my life. The effects change the brain in general it seems.
