For over 20 years, I’ve had the good fortune of learning from my clients and students, who come from all parts of the world, all age groups and all professions. I believe each of us is capable of learning anything, as long as we are motivated.
English is certainly challenging, but you can master it. Take every chance to improve your language skills… the opportunities are all around. Most importantly, enjoy yourself as much as possible, because our brains learn best when we are relaxed.
In my opinion, there are no bad students; unfortunately, there are students who have been exposed to poor teaching. So if you’re having difficulty or anyone is making you feel inferior or incapable, take control of your learning and find another student or teacher who can explain things to you from a different perspective. Online learning is great for this purpose, because you have so many options. Whatever happens, keep believing in yourself and you will make progress faster than you ever thought possible.
