Sometimes, like today, I feel completely stuck with English. I study every day, I have three or four channels to practice every day. I have a daily conversation class in group, I already listen one or two videos of grammar a day, a movie a week, listen and study Ted talks, try to catch up with phrasal verbs, pronunciation, and so on... But still I don't feel confident. And I began to feel over-informed. It's as I could not assimilate more content. And sometimes I try to listen something without subtitles and is very frustrating find out I can't understand yet most of dialogs. Don't think this feeling is all the time, It's just sometimes. Most of times I try to enjoy of the way. But when suddenly I try to concentrate in an important job video and I don't understand most of sentences, I feel very upset.

Keep going! I feel exactly the same learning Italian, sometimes it feels like it’s going really well, other times it feels like I can’t apply what I’ve learned.
