As human beings, we just love comfort. We speak English, we have been speaking it for years. This makes us great at it.
After all, what else do you practice as much as your mother tongue? Being so good in our first language makes us very comfortable. Well, comfort can also be a bit boring, don’t you think? Not just for languages, but for things in general. Your couch is pretty comfy, but pretty boring. Skydiving is pretty darn scary, but you will feel incredibly alive once you land safely. If you’re afraid of something you truly would like to do, ask yourself if the danger is real, if it is not, do it no matter how afraid you are.
Leaving your comfort zone for language-learning is certainly no piece of cake, but it’s essential. In this post, we will talk about the three enemies of language-learning and how they can be overcome.
