Of course, my illustration is an exaggeration but sometimes as language learners we don’t realize that language is about stringing words and their meanings together to get an idea or thought across. It’s difficult to do this by taking a lifetime to learn a language. Think in terms of collapsing the time frame and learning the basics within six months to a year. That way, you will feel like you have accomplished something, and you will know enough to actually start having fun with the language.
