8 Problems All English Learners Face

All language learners face the same problems, and nobody else quite understands your struggles – or successes – like other language learners. So take a look at the list below, maybe you’ve felt like this before! The important thing is to have a good attitude about your learning process. We all make silly mistakes sometimes when we’re learning a language, but as long as we can laugh about it, and learn from it, there’s nothing else we can do! So don’t worry, you’re doing great.

1. When English Speakers Talk Too Fast…

What did they just say?!
What did they just say?!

2. Knowing Words But Not Being Able to Put Them Into Sentences:

Oh... Uh... Hmm...
Oh… Uh… Hmm…

3. When You Know The Word But You Can’t Pronounce It

"I don't know what I just said."
“I don’t know what I just said.”

4. When You’re Too Nervous To Speak:

5. When People Use Slang Words You Don’t Understand

"Wait... She's sick? She looked fine to me."
“Wait… She’s sick? She looked fine to me.”

6. Taking A Long Time To Think About What You Want To Say:

"Hmm..."
“Hmm…”

7. Having Some Awkward Conversations Once In Awhile:

"Let's pretend that conversation didn't just happen..."
“Let’s pretend that conversation didn’t just happen…”

8. Feeling A Little Discouraged From Time To Time:
Dr.-Who

    In my humble opinion, they all have to do with devepmental brain processes within a cultural group that make it possible for the individual to adequately function within that group. The lesson appears to be to abandon simplistic ways of language teaching. The invitation is to delve more deeply into those brain processes that have to be developed. You are welcome!
