Anyone can start stuff, it’s the KEEPY GOERS that succeed! Be a keepy goer.
Remember back to when you first decided you wanted to learn Spanish? Maybe it was having moved to your new home in Spain and you felt it was an important factor in integrating within the Spanish community. Maybe you’d lived here a while, took time to settle into your new life and then the time was right? Maybe you have a holiday home here on the island and fancied the challenge of learning the language so that you could converse with confidence in restaurants etc and enhance your holiday experience?
Whatever the reason for starting, no doubt in those early weeks and months the excitement of getting started and making steady progress kept you motivated and focused .… but then (maybe) the learning curve seemed to become a continual uphill challenge? Did the sparkle started to dull?
That’s when we need to put on our KEEPY GOER hat and dig in for the long haul. There is not a quick fix or short cut in the process of becoming fluent. I never sugar-coat the story… but the rewards as you become more proficient are SO amazing. I’m sure you will have seen many of my testimonials supporting this fact. How students took their first shaky steps in Spanish and then went from strength to strength. It really feels better than winning the lottery when you have that first ‘proper’ conversation!
So think back often to that ‘reason’ which first motivated you to learn, and keep that reason why in the front of your mind when you’re feeling like throwing in the towel. As I always say at the start, it’s the KEEPY GOERS that succeed !!
You are in the minority group of people who have taken the plunge and made the commitment to learn and communicate in Spanish. You are already awesome. Let’s make 2020 the year for you to shine even brighter!
