The Moment It Clicks

February 1, 2017

Have you ever been frustrated when learning something new?

 

Anyone who has ever struggled with #understanding something, (whether maths, a game or a language) has likely experienced that moment when everything just clicks.  After #agonizing and #stressing over it for hours, maybe even months or years, you finally have an epiphany. This moment alone makes the journey worthwhile.

 

I remember struggling with reading when I was younger, the embarrassment of being the only one in my grade level who couldn’t read. Once I could read I felt fulfilled.  It made me believe that I could conquer any #challenge!

 

When I started to become serious about learning other languages, I faced a similar struggle. Whilst the majority of people in my hometown spoke Spanish, allowing me to pick up conversational #skills fairly quickly, I was illiterate in #Spanish. I couldn’t look up words in the dictionary or type messages since I didn’t know how to spell any of the words, much less understand the rules of where to insert accent marks.  Luckily for me, learning to read in #English gave me the necessary skills to slowly build my reading and writing skills in Spanish, and because I had already gone through this struggle once, I knew I could do it again.
