Learning any language and sticking with it is never an easy thing. Naturally there are always things that will get in the way, and the inevitable and unavoidably slow path of learning a language can be very discouraging. Mastering a language can take many years of studying and hard work, which is difficult to cram in to what is already a very busy life style for many. But like many things that are difficult it’s worth it. At least I certainly hope so because I’m still myself so far from mastering Japanese. This post is worth a re-blog to help language learners to remember that language learning should simply be enjoyed. If you’re learning a language and feeling discouraged, don’t beat yourself up or give up, just keep going, pace yourself, and have a little fun with it.
