It's easy to say, "I am gonna learn a new language because it's cool to be a multilingual Or maybe it will keep me out of the Alzheimer's!" It is easy to choose a language as there are thousands of languages out there. It is easier to learn the alphabets, words, sentence construction if you spend some of your valuable time. However, in our journey, we come to a juncture where we get confused asking ourselves questions like, "Now what?" Or "What do I need to do exactly?", "How can I be fluent?", "Should I be more focused on Grammar or should I read a novel?" and many more...
That's what I call a bottleneck situation in language learning which I think people might be experiencing in their language learning journey.
How do you get rid of this bottleneck problem? How do you keep rekindling your interest and fight with that feeling of "That's enough, let'me give up!"?
Any of your stories related to your language learning endeavor would be greatly appreciated!
Keep learning, happy learning:)
you have a very good question. I wouldn't name this situation or problem as a bottleneck, but it doesn't matter.
In my learning journey, I have come over the situation like this many times. I think the reason is that we possibly don't have a professional teacher who will guide our studies and we need to choose what to do by ourselves. If you have a low level of the target language any teacher can help you. The real problem starts when you have an intermediate or advanced level. In this situation, a teacher can't help you, because it is a fine work, and nobody knows you and your goals better than you. Only you can solve the problem.
What I do is I speak with a lot of other learners and ask them how they reach the goals that similar to mine.
I hope it help will you.
Thank you so much Val and Drasvi for your opinion and info! Indeed great to know about your perspective:)
Drasvi, haha I am sure most of the mathematicians are quite cable of finding a new equation if they come across any bottleneck situation:D
