Can anyone please tell me something motivational or give me some advice regarding the following problem: when I try to read children’s books and super short texts in Arabic I often still have to look up every word or almost every word and it makes me feel bad because it feels like I’m cheating. You know? Because I’m studying Arabic and yet when I try to read smth I understand the same amount of words I would understand if I read a text in Polish or any other language I’m not studying - which is zero. So when I have to look up every word it makes me feel like I’m cheating because I could do that with every other language too and end up understanding the text…. it’s very frustrating, especially because I’m not used to having this problem since I’ve only studied Romance and Germanic languages so far so I’ve always understood at least the gist even if the text was in a language I don’t know.
Okay, so here I am, an innocent lurker, having just found this blog, when I see: "what if the skywalkers were cthulu-type monsters." excuse me??? please elaborate you just wrote that and nothing else im dying ex p la i n y o ur s el f
