There is nothing impossible in language learning.
by Georgina Heredia
Get ready to know a truth that will change your view towards language learning.
Nothing is impossible
- No sound is too different to be reproduced with your mouth. (after all, you're trying to copy it from other humans with a very similar mouth)
- No phrase structure is too hard to be recreated.
- There's not a limit in the number of languages a human brain can store
- There's not an age in which the language learning abilities stop working.
- No level is too advanced to be reached
- No accent is too foreign to be imitated.
- There's nothing that can be done if you persist enough.
Maybe you will have to try 3, 8 or 20 times, but if you give up when you're at the 2nd, the 7th or the 19th, you'll never enjoy success.
Don't see your mistakes as failures. They are opportunities for you to see what's that you're NOT suppossed to do. Keep searching.
No language is too hard to be learned.
If someone is able to speak it, even if it's half-way around the world, then it means you're able to speak it, too.
Why am I so sure?
Because you being able to read this means you've learned English, which means that your brain and the organs required for language and language learning work perfectly.
Just keep trying until you enjoy the fruits of your effort. Otherwise, You would be making something impossible out of language learning. I have shown you that everything is possible. Now go and show it to yourself.
