What do you do when you think you are failing Spanish, about to fail Spanish, or just not making progress?
I know how you feel because I used to get that feeling in Math. I used to feel like I was never good at it. Nothing made sense except addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. That was it! As far as I’m concerned, that’s all I needed to get by in the real world, so who cares about anything else? Forget algebra and anything else you wouldn’t be using on a daily basis.
But the point I want to make is that not all parts of the math were challenging. I just found some sections and topics more challenging than others, so I had to find a way to overcome my challenges in those areas in order to pass.
But bringing this back to Spanish, I found parts of Spanish challenging as well, particularly listening to Spanish; learn to speak the language fluently and have a large vocabulary. Because of this, I had to come up with ways to deal with the challenges I was facing.
That was the only way it was going to happen.
So if you are failing Spanish or think you are in danger of failing Spanish, I advise you to do the following:
1. Identify the parts of Spanish in your Spanish course that you have difficulty with. What do you find most difficult about learning Spanish? Is the vocabulary; verb conjugation; speech; listening; read or write?
2. When you’ve done that, try to think of specific tips to help you improve in the area you’re having difficulty with. So if you are pretty good at reading, then don’t spend any more time reading in Spanish. Spend time on the parts that you find most challenging.
3. Spend an extra 15 minutes a day in those areas. And you’re not going to slave in these areas for 15 minutes either. You’re going to find fun ways to improve in those areas. There are already quite a few tips on my blog that will help you stay more connected to the language and more engaged with it.
Anyone who feels that they are failing at something will start to feel disconnected from it, for obvious reasons, so find inspiration to stay engaged and wanting to improve. When you have fun with something, you stop feeling like you are working or studying and just learning or learning things at record speed. That’s when you start to make progress.
4. Be consistent in working to overcome your challenges. If there’s one thing you’ll hear me say over and over again, it’s to be consistent, whatever your approach to improvement. Rome was not built in a day. A little effort over time is what will help you pass Spanish and get a good grade!
You will not fail in Spanish and I assure you that if you start now, you will see an improvement in as little as two weeks because I have seen it happen over and over again.
So now that you know what to do, get down to business now!
