Impact from Fluent Forever

Honestly, I wish I picked a different book other than Fluent Forever. I am stressed over the fact that I have to learn a second language in a few weeks, not fluently of course. Nevertheless, the whole ordeal is a lot of work. Moreover, throughout the entire book the author continues to advertise different products. I already bought two Spanish books on Amazon, and they were pretty expensive; I am a little annoyed about it. I am not even exaggerating when I say one of the books the author recommended for Spanish learners was two hundred dollars. Furthermore, the only advice the author is really giving is to make flashcards. I did not spend money on a book to tell me to make flashcards for vocabulary. He recognizes that the bulk of language acquisition is flashcards when he states, “This book is about many things: language, the human brain, the learning process, the essence of words. But when you get down to brass tacks, it’s about learning languages with flash cards” (Wyner 177).

    Cheyenne, don’t lose hope! This sounds like a tough situation, but don’t give up! I believe that you have the potential to learn a second language. I remember when I was learning Korean for the first time, I was ready to give up after the first day of learning. I had to realize that good work takes time. You can do it!
