“The golden rule of language learning: Absolutely any method of language learning, as long as it includes regular exposure to the target language, will eventually yield fluency if followed faithfully enough. … Some methods of language learning may be better or worse than others, but there is no “wrong” method. … It’s like the saying goes, “most of success is just showing up“.Glowing Face Man (blogging about language, communication, and self-improvement)

I really like Glowing Face Man’s optimism, but I know that using the method that is wrong for you is counterproductive – precisely because it makes you not want to show up anymore. That unfortunately is what happened to me in math and physics (so interesting and yet so hard for me). So I really want to help learners find the best approach for them.
