Listening To Spanish Radio – Why I Don’t Have To Understand Everything I Hear….YET

Listening To Spanish Radio

I think it is really important to make sure your expectations are set correctly.

I listen to Spanish Radio every day and even after a few weeks of doing so, it still sounds like one long stream of fast Hispanic consciousness with hardly a pause for breath.

Occasionally a word or phrase will jump out at me, and occasionally I get the gist of what is being said.

It is still too early for me to truly know what is going on.

BUT that is not the point.

The point is to help my brain get used to the music of the Spanish Language.

What I am finding is that occasionally a few words are strung together that I recognise and UNDERSTAND.

Now compared to a few weeks ago, that is a major step forward.

If I start to focus on what I CAN’T understand then I will stay overwhelmed and feel despondent.

So the key is to focus on what you CAN understand and then be inspired by that.

It is the difference between a Growth and a fixed Mind set.

And at some point I shall expand on what that is all about. Meanwhile I am battling the difference between the two in my own learning right now.
