Most Spanish Programs Will Overwhelm You and WON'T Make You Fluent.
Are you wasting your time learning Spanish?
If you're like most Spanish learners, you've used a LOT of Spanish resources. Podcasts, courses, apps, grammar books, phrase books...
And no matter how much effort you put in, it's not turning into fluency. Everything you study is either too simple (colors, numbers, animal names) or too abstract (conjugation charts, grammar exercises, obscure phrases you'd never say in your life).
On top of that, even if you DO feel a little bit of progress, it's inconsistent. For every new word you learn, you seem to forget two words. Sometimes you find a spare hour, sit down, and focus on Spanish... and you can't figure out what to prioritize.
This is incredibly discouraging. Because if you don't know what's the right stuff to work on, how are you ever going to make the steady, patient progress that is required to achieve full fluency?
If you are worried that you might be wasting your time, here's the ultimate question: After hours, weeks, and months of working on Spanish... how much can you actually USE in conversation?
At this point, most students give up.
Mastering a language takes an ENORMOUS amount of time and focus. And if your Spanish study time is being wasted, it feels like there's no reason to push through.
