1. It’s easy to get started. But so hard to master it.
Language learners understand that like any skill, getting started is the easy part. But to go from beginner to intermediate level, then intermediate level to advanced is another ball game. What’s the real secret to learning a language faster? Consistency, daily routines, and dedication.
2. Your private teacher becomes the highlight of your day.
Having a private teacher can accelerate your learning speed. When you start building a relationship with these teachers, it can become one of the best things to look forward to in your stressful day. There’s laughter, learning, and growth that happens with each session, and it can become addicting.
3. That feeling when you’ve just had your first conversation with a native speaker is the Best feeling.
4. You now travel for a completely different reason.
When you can speak a new language, you can start building relationships with native speakers living in the country. Travel will never feel the same again.
5. The urge to start learning yet another language.
We’ve all had the desire to become a polyglot and being able to speak dozens of languages. But making sure we’ve established a solid foundation with one language before moving onto another is crucial.
6. Someone learns that you speak a foreign language, and now wants you to translate everything.
Then you realize how little you actually know, and how much more you need to practice.
7. The urge to hang out with anyone that speaks the language you’re learning.
When you’re first starting to learn a language, you either use it or lose it. It’s critical to find opportunities to practice your speaking skills with anyone that would speak with you in your target language. Find meetup events, conversation exchanges, online language teaching websites —anything!
8. You’ve studied the language for so long that you forget how to say something in your native language.
