Learning tip: Attitude! Posted by Adir on Jul 29, 2011 in Uncategorized
Hi, everybody! How have you been?
Well, I was thinking the other day and I came to the conclusion that one of the most important things when you set out to do something new is to have attitude. I mean, not a nasty attitude towards anything but a very positive and proactive attitude.
You may tell me, “But Adir, Spanish is so different from English, there are so many verb forms, tenses that are not used in English” and all that kind of talk. But I come from the school of hard knocks so I always think: if someone has done it, I can do it, too!
That takes a truckload of determination, patience, hard work and consistency. And let me tell you something: it feels awesome when things (language patterns) start falling into place and you see, in your head, how the language is built.
Each person learns differently and one thing you need to do is find out what’s your language learning style: visual, auditory, if you need to write things down (my style!), and so son. As soon as you know “how” you learn, you just need to find a good source of materials and be consistent in your study.
To sum it up, have a good attitude towards learning Spanish because as my mom says, “Knowledge occupies no room”, meaning the more we know, the more there is to know. Isn’t that a great thought?
Take care and have a good one!
