The Language Learning Plateau

Learning a language is one of the most rewarding things you can do in your lifetime. Nevertheless, it is still a challenging task, and sooner or later everybody hits the language learning plateau. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, and just like puberty– everybody has to go through it. 

I’ve experienced at least 3 plateaus in my journey, each one more daunting than the last. The last one, however, was the greatest challenge I’ve ever faced. Since moving to my target language’s country, my language skills took a dive for the worst. Everything just felt out of place, new and unrecognizable. Speaking to natives gave me more of a headache than a feeling of satisfaction. And watching everyone around me communicate fluently, while I took 10 seconds to think of an appropriate sentence was more than embarrassing. But, the good news is that it didn’t last forever. Now, I’m making more progress than ever before in my target language! 

In this article, we’ll be discussing the infamous language learning plateau.
