I took Japanese language class for three years in high school and while I can retain skeletal basics of the language (Sakuma-sensei, thanks for TTPOV), I don't recall much vocabulary.
I completed first year Chinese in college, and I haven't retained much.
I used to be excited to learn Chinese... it died when I realized that my plans of studying abroad in China wouldn't come true.
For a while I was learning French on my own, I got good enough to understand Brent after he took a first-level class at UCLA... I don't do it much anymore.
I'm more than a little disappointed in my inability to stay committed to a language :|
Maybe I don't have enough people to practice with, or maybe I'm shy and push whoever I've got away. My mom hasn't exactly been impressed with my choices in language... she's always wanted me to learn Spanish, mainly for its convenience but somehow the language itself never interested me (sorry, Spanish-speakers, it's completely no offense to you!).
Not to mention I haven't even tried learning Tagalog, my own home language!
Do any of you have trouble with languages or just learning in general? :(
For me it's more like the motivation to keep going... I'm pretty good starting out, but I just, blah.
