It is ridiculously frustrating that I've been studying a language for two years, and steadily studying it, and still can only say very basic things.
However, languages are not easy to learn, particularly for someone who has only one language.
I think perhaps I need to let go of the goal of speaking and focus on a goal of understanding. If I take the pressure off myself to produce something and just be happy with how much my ability to understand is improving, maybe someday, after a lot of listening, I'll begin to be able to speak.
I've wanted so badly to be bilingual, and I chose this language because it's one that would have practical purpose in my life!
I will attempt some more simple sentences at some point soon, but I'm going to try not to get angry with myself when they're wrong!
