All Things Are Hard Before They Are Easy

This magnet is one of the most perfect gifts ever given to me – my dog is a schnauzer, named Easy. It happens to be his 5th birthday today, so this post is in honor of him. Happy birthday, Easy!

The expression is also relevant to learning a language, to establishing and sticking to a regular habit, and to committing to a language challenge.

It’s not going to be easy from the start. 

In fact, it might not be easy for a while. But it’s important to realize that it is always going to be hard at the beginning, and eventually it will get easier. So keep on truckin’, language lovers!
