So, you have decided to take the challenge up and start learning how to read and write and maybe even to speak (if you are lucky and brave enough) in a foreign language. Honestly, you very well deserve the warmest congrats for it! Anyway, that is a very courageous and definitely necessary step up to your self-development and broaden your horizons.
However, let us put the enthusiasm aside for some time, though of course it is extremely important, and look at the situation from a more realistic point of view. Do you not feel bored with and tired of listening to dozens of tracks and making numerous exercises, which include writing your all-time favorite essays as well? Or, probably, you realize you cannot escape using Google Translator when you are reading news in the language which, you understand, you have been trying to learn for all this time. And certainly, you know you would be happy to watch a short episode of the widely-known movie without subtitles if you could make out at least a half of what the actors were saying.
That all makes you lose heart, doesn’t it? It begins to seem to you that you will never comprehend the hidden meanings of odd combinations of sounds and letters (or other, even odder, signs). You may ask yourself why you need to spend your precious time with all these workbooks, doing all these tasks if you have not succeeded that much until today or if it gets more and more difficult for you to move on with your study?
Do not give up! It is good that you can notice things which you still cannot do but which you want to do. Your case would be much worse, even irresolvable, if you did not see those things and thought that you had already achieved an absolutely satisfactory level of knowledge.
Some Nice Tips to Keep Yourself Inspired
Every time you do not feel like you want to learn the language your school, college, or your own ambitions have chosen for you, take a quick look at these pieces of advice. Hope, you will find them really useful!
Think About a Clear Purpose
Probably, you have somehow come across a number of smart citations telling you that you need to have a clear purpose behind your every aspiration. This purpose will help you understand what exactly you want to achieve and therefore make you think about the ways how you can do it. It is all the same with learning a language. You should decide why you need it and how it will help you in the future.
Search for More Info
In order to understand the language and its speakers better, it is recommended to learn more about the history and culture of the region or country where these people live and where this language has been developing until today. This can be really interesting and very helpful!
Just Imagine How Cool You Are
You definitely know this feeling when your friends ask you to “say something” in a foreign language you have started to learn. So, you can interpret meanings which are beyond the comprehension of other people. Isn’t it cool?
