When I went to the first grade in school I already could read and write in my native language, and do some basic calculations, adding and subtracting. When the English teaching begun on the third grade I already could say some basic stuff in English. Like tell my age or my name. It was all so easy. Basically I was screwed.

I believe it's because of all that I have this idea, a feeling deep down, I should be able to learn everything immediately. Or better yet, have already learned it before the actual teaching begins. Otherwise it's waste of time.

Later on, as a teenager, I decided to learn French. But since I could only say "je suis une petite poubelle" I didn't know that much. Besides the language teaching in the schools I attended to was based on grammar and memorizing lists of words. Not my style. So I never really got into it. I may be now able to say a little more than I'm a small trash can, but it's all very elementary.
