Cómo évitar la desmotivación en el aprendisaje del español

Another good article to read as we all get discouraged at one time or another in learning a different language:

En este momento pienso que estoy en un meseta en aprender español.
No creo que estoy mejorando en el habla.

Someone once described to me that learning a language is like filling up an inverted cone. Initially the level rises quickly as the area to fill is relatively small. As the level rises up the cone, however, there is proportionally much more area to fill and so the rise is slower. Progress appears to have slowed to a crawl but that is only the perception.
 
I suspect that there are very few individuals who can attain conversational fluency solely by learning online. There are simply too many points of discouragement along the learning process. Having for example a week of total language immersion scheduled every year to “jump start” where we’re at is probably just what is needed. (In fact, I think I remember reading recently a post here on the forum regarding this very thing.)

So, Steven, to follow your metaphor through to its (il)logical conclusion, we language learners are Coneheads, eh?

Seriously though, I have been thinking more and more that I need an immersion course. When I was in Cuba last December I spent time in areas where either people's English was poorer than my Spanish, or they did not speak English at all. I was surprised how well I was able to communicate and came home full of confidence that I was making progress in learning the language. Now, with only a couple of hours a week actually speaking with and listening to Spanish speakers, I feel like a first class gringo.

Me acuerdo cuando SNL comenzó por la primera vez. Que genio cómico a través de los años.
 
Cuando hablo con alguien por Skype ahora, siempre la gente habla mejor en inglés que yo hablo en español. Pero como tú, puedo comunicarme con los demás - y eso de mejor y mejor. Necesitamos todos ocasiones que nos den ánimo en el aprendizaje de un idioma. Creo que seguir un curso de inmersión sería una buena idea.
