Random question! I'm already bilingual and decided to pick up german about a year ago and it's going good so far, but lately (3 months) I've been slacking and I'm annoyed with myself. I really am good at german and LOVE IT! But the grammar is very hard and I get discouraged lol Because I learned my other language so fast! Has there ever been a point when you felt a language was "too hard"? And how'd you push through it?! I really want to be fluent but I'm so so so frustrated!
i cant tell u the number of times i stayed up crying late at night bc after like 8 months of learning german i still couldnt understand what cases were let alone how to use them or remember the genders of words and realised i had started to plateau due to not being able to wrap my mind around such a crucial part of the grammar. it was around that time though that i finally got the chance to speak to a native for the first time (i had communicated w ppl online previously but i hadnt actually spoken to anyone) and despite the sheer awfulness of my grammar and how incredibly nervous i was he told me my accent was perfect and i just felt this wave of excitement and pride wash over me that i couldnt wait to go home and get stuck into improving my grammar bc i rlly craved that orgasmic feeling of getting complimented on my hard work 🙈
