I was just thinking the other day about this... I've been feeling that my biggest enemy right now (while learning dutch) specially in the last few weeks is me. Well, it's no secret I have a serious neurological problem that actually affects my memory, but that's not the reason I say I am my own worst enemy right now. I say it because I tend to get distracted so easily I find it hard to focus in just only one thing for a long time. And yes, since i do most of my study online I often end up doing something else Another obstacle I've found while learning dutch it's the fact my partner is not really good at explaining things, he doesn't correct me when needed and his English is not good. So I avoid asking him anything, because I know he will end up confusing me more. Another thing that annoys me is the fact that when I try to study and ask him for help he takes it as a joke or some sort of silly game Now obstacles regarding the language: It's nothing like English... many phrases can't be translated word by word into English and i basically need to stop thinking in English so much while learning this language. I need to get this into my head: Dutch is not English and I need to stop that nasty habit... always trying to translate everything to English in my head. So guys, what's your biggest problem or obstacle right now?
