Learning another language can open a lot of doors but how can we do it without losing ourselves in the process?
"It is soooo hard to learn", "It is not useful", "Uhgg is so boring" or "It is not used by many people" are the most common ones I've heard. Of course, any language has its "degree of difficultness" but from my experience the more you let other people experiences dictate how you approach learning it the harder it gets.
Whether it is for school, work, pleasure or any other reason try to focus on your goal and keep notes on how far you have made it. Sometimes we think we are stuck in the same place for ages and forget why we even began to learn it but, if we are able to see how much we have accomplished and how that is helping us achieve the goal we have set, we can recharge batteries and keep going.
We all have our own way to do things but, in my case I enjoy a lot learning new words and compare them with my mother tongue and just laugh if by some reason I think they are funny because they mean one thing in one language and something super random in the other. The important thing is to be relaxed and find a way to enjoy the process.
