What are the most difficult for you in learning languages?
It’s interesting to know what difficulties you face learning foreign languages and what is the biggest difficulty for you?
The biggest difficulty for me in English learning was the rules of reading. Our English language teacher at the school didn’t pay enough attention to this moment. I didn’t learn these rules appropriately and I still have some difficulties with correct reading of some new words.
The second most difficult moment for me is correct pronunciation. I often cannot distinguish the difference between the sounds like th and s and others.
What about you?:-)

I see Natalia it´s all down to pronunciation anyway , in English you better learn the pronunciation by heart , there are some rules but you don´t need to waste your time learning those rules. Listen , listen and listen ...

Don´t blame your teacher ...he is a good fella .

Natalia:

I can understand your difficulty with English. I too struggled with English as kid because I'm dyslexic. I'm dyslexic so I lack natural ability to distinguish phonetics sounds in English. Fortunately, my parents sent me to private school where it focused on phonetic sounds. So I suggest you look for videos on YouTube to hear sounds over and over.

As I am learning Spanish now. My greatest difficulty is grammar structure. I know I will have difficulty mastering it but I'm very determined. I study about 2 to 3 hours a day with Spanish application. I have a weekly tutoring lessons. Most of all, I watch movies and TV shows in Spanish. I listen to radio in Spanish and I try to find Spanish speakers.

All and all, my learning habits are nontraditional as I have learned phrases and words as I learn grammar backwards.
