Overcoming the Frustration of Language Learning

By Rachel Reardon |   Apr 21, 2011 8:36:19 AM

There comes a time when you are trying to learn a foreign language that you feel you are not making any progress.

Leaving my family and friends to study in France for 6 months was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I tried to make that sound as believable as possible – did it work? Studying abroad meant traveling as much as possible, living in a country that considers food a form of art, and basking in the Mediterranean sun on a daily basis. Since I knew I would be coming home at the end of my séjour, leaving the good ole’ US of A wasn’t the hard part.
