Sorry. I need to vent a little here. . .
The German language is so hard for me to grasp! I've taken 8 months of intensive courses (I'm in my 9th class now) and I'm still struggling to get a hold of this language! Some days I love it. I do. I get a high that lasts for hours just from a successful conversation with a waiter, a friend, or the nanny of one of my tutees. But these highs, these happy feelings, seem to be further and further apart. Lately, I feel more frustrated than satisfied with my language learning. I think I need a break. But then again, tomorrow I may wake up and think there's nothing more that I want to do right now than immerse myself in German. Uh! Frustration Nation!
Do any of you have tips for me? I know that learning a language is supposed to be hard. And I know that it takes time. Sure, sure. I get that. But how do you persevere through the tough times? Today is one of those tough times.
