I have just signed up and up to now am really enjoying how the course is structured, I have also particularly enjoyed reading the forums, as I have had a tough time with convincing myself that I am cut out for language learning, I seem to struggle retaining grammar, I had a few ITalki lessons, as I read everywhere that speaking with a native as soon as possible is a good thing, for me it nearly made me give up!! each week I struggled with the conversation, I came away from each lesson disheartened, after reading a lot of posts on here I realised that this is probably normal and that I am not too old for this (I am 50 by the way), or don't have the aptitude for learning a new language, and that in hindsight the teacher didn’t have a lot of experience with new learners and expected to much from me, my point is that the forums have given me renewed optimism but was wondering why there hasn’t been much activity recently in the Spanish areas, did something happen? might be just coincidence but there seemed to be more of a consistent flow until about 3 months ago.
Also any recommendations of how you all use Rocket Spanish and any other recommendations or pointers to helpful forum posts would be great,
Thanks in advance
