Is it possible to memorize things in a subconscious manner, for example, hearing a certain tape while sleeping, or in any other way?

It is possible that it is possible. I know that is not the asnwer you wanted, but it is the correct answer. Hypnosis is far more useful in helping a person recall important info at a specific time (like a test or using a skill under pressure, such as golf).

To learn, for example a foreign language using only subconsious learning methods would be impossible, it is not the primary way we learn languge as a child, and memorizing rote numbers or answers or lists may be enhanced if there are other learning methods to accompany it.

Your question is vague, but most often this question arises as one tries to "learn a foreign languge in your sleep" type of program, and I do not think this is possible without other learning methods.

When it comes to foregn languages, and I have tried a few, master of none, but I can get around in a few countries with my basic Russian skills, I have found it is the self-consciousness that keeps me from using it more and learning better. For most people this is the issue with using a foriegn language, so perhaps self-confidence hypnosis would be more effective than vocabulary as the focus on hypnosis.

Be more specific in your question, and I will try to answer in more depth.

I would've thought all learning was unconscious or subconscious.

My mentor used to have a language learning programme. He guaranteed that he could teach you the basics of a language in only two days. This was more than 20 years ago and he charged £2500 then.

He would hypnotise you then put on some tape that installed the words into you without conscious study. He claimed you could go survive in the country of choice after only two days in trance. He would wake you up every hour or so give you a break and then re-induce trance and put on the tape.

I met one of his clients once who was from south Africa. He seemed happy enough.

My mentor was a bit shady though so I really have no idea how effective it was.

Actually it's a tape of vocabulary in my native language, does it make any difference? more/less effective?

LOL Golf!

Seriously though, speaking of the power of the mind and what can and can't be learned, I have a specific example of this. In high school, in my Chemistry 30 class, I had an wonderful teacher who let me sleep. For near a whole semester I slept, at the front of the class, for the entire class. I woke up, wrote down what was on the board, then left. Without studying, because I never did during any schooling, I received the highest chem mark in my class on every test and second highest mark in the school at the end of the term.

So, unless I was Antoine Lavoisier in a previous life, I would hazard a guess that a great deal can be learned through hypnosis, which is so less mired than actual unconsciousness... followed up with a brief review of the material.

I am very happy to have seen this thread. Because of my chemistry experience, it makes me want to attempt this on myself with a language. I'll keep you posted!

The concept of direct to subconcious learning is not a new idea there have been several studies on Hypnosis and learning. In general you can learn faster and more completely in a trance state. Milton Erickson was known to actually enter a light trance himself while working with clients because it made him more aware of the subtle reactions of the client and he was easily able to recall all the happenings in the session.
