Fear of Language Learning
A few months ago I started working on learning French. I tried several different kinds of online lessons, but I couldn't seem to get off the ground with understanding, let alone speaking, French. I dropped the effort just to recover from the feeling of burnout, but I'd like to get back into learning again.
During this hiatus, I've learned that fear of foreign languages is a thing, and I seem to have it pretty badly. I think this must be from negative experiences and the lack of success that I had back when I was in school. When I tried online learning on my own, I unconsciously set myself up for the same failure loop that I had gone through before.
I heard about this site in my travels, but a lot of the teachers look intimidating and cater to way above my level. I don't want to set myself up for another burnout/failure. Are there any teachers who have experience and hopefully success in dealing with this issue? I looked at many teachers, but I didn't see anything like that.
