How To Keep Smiling Through The Bad Days Of Language Learning

G’day all!

I’m just back from a late Korean hangout and pretty damn tired so I have a video rather than a written post this week! 🙂

Today I want to share a short video post with you to talk about how we should best respond to the bad days that we all experience when learning a foreign language.

These days can cripple us morally, causing some people to give up momentarily and sometimes even entirely.

And we all have them.

I had a frustrating moment on Saturday (one of several recent experiences) here in Korea that initially caused me a bit of discouragement but by changing my perspective I was able to look at it as something positive and as an opportunity for growth.

Let us know how you’ve responded to these situations in the comment section below! 🙂

I think you did great, but may have been socially embarrassed. Whatever, as you say, you got your point across, and that's the main thing. You get tons of points for having the guys to go in there in the first place!
