When you fall off language learning?
Unfortunately it happens to the best of us. Sometimes we go into our new language full throttle, then just get burnt out. One of my favorite language lovers of all time is Moses. I thought his Question of the Week was something that we should answer, or at least analyse in this blog post.
I think one of the answers to this problem, is to remind ourselves why we started learning the language in the first place.
On Moses´s video, here are some of the responses people left:
Many polyglots run into this problem. Usually it is just life that throws us road blocks. Speaking for myself, having two babies, a husband and a house that always needs to be cleaned, it is very difficult finding time. I listen to languages on my I-Pod when I take the baby out for a walk in the stroller.
Remember, we are in competition with ourselves. Polyglots are not competing with anyone else. The best way to get out of that rut, is to continue competing with yourself. Put your foot down, remind yourself why you started doing this. Moses uses his language learning as therapy. We all get something out of it. So if you have fallen off, tap into your own private motivation.
Start printing and copying your study sheets. Make your own homework assignments. Pick up where you left off. You will be glad you did. I listed several printers and copiers below.
