How long does it take to learn a language? I often hear that question.On the other hand, I never ask myself that question. I ask myself how can I most effectively and most enjoyably learn a language. As long as I am enjoying the process I will continue to interact with the language and continue to learn. You never master another language, you just keep on getting better, as long as what you are doing is effective and you enjoy the process. That, at least, is my experience.
