« Easy Spanish ».
« Learn Spanish with fun ».
« Learn Spanish in 1-2-3 ».
Are these… lies?
No, they are not. They couldn’t be more accurate!
What all language courses forget to mention though:
That YOU have to contribute the talent for ease, fun, and the 1-2-3 mentality.
Or have to learn these talents, while learning the language.
Re-discover your childlike curiosity.
When you postpone your learning of Spanish until that course next week… that is not 1-2-3. 1-2-3 would be if you, right here and right now, are already looking up how to say 1-2-3 in Spanish. When you’re spidering this very phrase to see which word you can already say in Spanish.
When the idea of learning a language, or anything else for that matter, gives you a headache to start with, no method will be fun, and forget about easy. Then 1-2-3 refers to the number of centuries.
In short, YOU have to be easy, fun and 1-2-3.
All obstacles are psychological.
And so are all solutions.
« It’s too hard », « I don’t have a gift for languages », « I’m not clever enough », « I’m embarrassed to make a mistake », …
When it comes to learning a language, there’s no end to the hurdles that people put up. They are self-inflicted. And, of course, self-fulfilling prophecies. People who put up hurdles, stay forever stuck in the corral.
Those who do learn a new language, discover that any next language becomes easier still. Why? Well, because you totally lose inhibitions for a start! You care very little about « I feel embarrassed » or « I’m afraid to make a mistake » or « I don’t want to make a fool of myself ». You have learned: THAT’s how you learn a language, period. And none of it is a drama.
And at no point EVER do you make a fool of yourself. When you try to speak someone’s language, you go to the status of king. You find a place in the heart, not just in the forehead.
Learning a language sets you free 🙂
You loose the thought that you’re not clever enough. You loose the thought that you have no gift for something. You loose the thought that you have to be perfect all the time. You loose the thought that people like perfection (they love IMPERFECTION). You loose the thought that another language is not necessary.
It is fun and easy and quick… when you decide it will be so.
