Confucius Said :
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand."
"By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest." and you use it to boost your languistic abilities .
So , just keep on , as the french common saying : "c’est en forgeant que l’on devient forgeron" Or in spanish
you can say : " la práctica hace la perfección (es)"
