Learning a language is hard

Learning a language is hard! However, what keeps me practicing Spanish every day is that the people I am tutoring are working hard at learning English. I also feel God wants me to learn Spanish. So, here is a verse I keep in mind when things get difficult:

"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11
