Hello guys and welcome back to another post. Today, I'm going to share my learning experience with you all. So, here we go.
While learning a new language the main goal is to master it quickly. But when you begin learning you often struggle to be consistent and in the end, you may find it hard and leave it completely. Especially when the language is completely different from your native language with different rules and structure. It can be difficult, I know.
The thing is when we start something new we get all excited, and get carried away but when we face obstacles, disappointment begins to rear its head like an uninvited and annoying guest. We get agitated, and we start making excuses that we may learn later or like, 'I'm really tired' or 'I don't feel like learning'. If you feel that way then it's okay, I've been there as well and I know how difficult it can be to be consistent but the important part is to not give up.
When I first started learning Korean I was really really excited and hoped that I would be fluent in Korean in no time. But after going through all the vocabulary, grammar, irregulars, etc.., I found it difficult to understand, not only that I would completely understand a concept but when I tried to use it to frame a sentence my mind would go completely blank. I felt like I was not making any progress and that made me lose my interest in learning. As I thought that I wasn't making any progress I seriously wanted to give up but I forced myself to keep learning which left me exhausted.
But finally, I realized that I shouldn't push myself to the point where I want to give up completely. I became inconsistent, I took a break for about a couple of months straight as I had other things to deal with. And when I felt like getting back into learning, I began learning again with a fresh perspective, and guess what, it was not that boring or hard I was having fun instead. I was like, 'yeah I can do this.' I wasn't following any timetable table, I was learning when I felt like doing it. Usually what happens is when you follow a timetable you feel stuck or burdened and that might affect your learning capability.
The whole point of this post is if you ever feel like giving up then take a break and come back when you feel fresh and confident. If you already have some work to deal with then take care of that work first. You can be inconsistent, it's not a bad thing as long as you're not giving up. Remind yourself why you are learning Korean, what inspired you to do it, derive your motivation from it and you're good to go.
Well, this is how I feel. Anyway, I hoped this post helped you in some way. Leave your thoughts down below and let me know what you think.
