On the other hand, I don’t believe there’s much I can’t learn, if given the proper tools and environment.
I’ve struggled for years to learn Spanish. I know all I’d need to do is hire someone to spend time with me, all day every day, speaking in Spanish, but understanding English (and my spectacular Spanglish). There’s no doubt in my mind that if I were dropped off in a Spanish speaking country with no help and no assistance in English, I could survive. I’m not sure why I still struggle so hard with Spanish, to be honest.
I can’t be too good. It can’t come too easy. That makes me a target of people’s expectations.
