A few years ago I had decided that I wanted to learn Spanish. The
thought of becoming bilingual appealed to me as a challenge I would
enjoy. I signed up for classes at an adult school and as the classes
progressed I found that “I wasn’t getting it”, so
I dropped the classes.
I, as most of us, knew
people who learned languages very easily and I was frustrated that
I wasn’t one of those people. Other subjects and interest
I attempted were not easy, but “I got them” in a fairly
short time. I convinced myself that I was one of those people whose
brain worked in such a way that languages were difficult for them
(the old left brain – right brain thing).
