Bad Feelings

Sometimes I have the feeling paople just pick me off with their criticism. I love when someone correct my language in a kind way, because that is great to improve, even They cheer me up and I thank them. But I know when someone is just trying to be rude and is using a condescending tone. People would be receptive and patient, or at least, this is my opinion, and to be honest, I always try to be like that when someone foreign is speaking Spanish. What is your opinion?

You've already found that people are different. Hopefully the future will show you more considerate people.

Just care only people who are good to you. For those who are rude, just leave them be. I´m learning Spanish myself and to be honest, it´s hard to find someone to talk to in Spanish and that they are patient with my level of Spanish haha but since I also teach Thai for beginners, my patience level is very high.

Well, here's Internet. So you can not be sure everyone is gentle and nice. Someone is just boring, so they make nonsense. Ignore them and don't let you be disturbed. Have a nice day.

This is the exact reason that brought me here to ialki. I understand my language of choice well, but I lack the confidence to speak it. When I was a child I could speak it fluently, but after much ridicule I stopped. As an adult now, I find that little has changed. The ridicule continues and it makes it that much more difficult to learn and gain confidence.

 

In the end I have had to grow thicker skin on the advice of those who have been sympathetic to my plight. Believe me, I do know the feeling and the frustration that comes with it, but don't let anyone deter you from your goal. What I have come to realise is that when learning a language you have to be willing to make mistakes, while that part is fine, it is the lack of patience or cruelty of others that can make or break you. During times like this consider the fact that the offending individual is nothing but a passing leaf in the wind, a temporary irritation, whilst on the contrary what you are doing your best to learn is going to be a gift that stays with you for life. The pay off is a small one when put in that context.

Hi Dear,

You are right but you have no need to disappoint due to their behavior. You should just ignore them because ''CRITICISM'' is the most easiest work of the world but ''ENCOURAGEMENT'' is the most couraging work and there are very few people who have courage to encourage someone. If someone is discouraging you, it means he/she has a jealousy with you which may be due to any reason. It's non of your business. You can just ignore them because they don't ''DESERVE YOU''. Learning something new a difficult thing . it's not the work of ordinary people and you are not ordinary if you are learning something new in any field of life.
