Music is great.. For me, it makes learning a language more interesting in an expressive way if I like it's lyrics and rhythm.

Yes, it's both motivating and useful. But for me, if the learner is very interested in learning the language, he/she naturally can create steps of his/her own to effectively learn the said language even without following the same steps/methods that are being discussed in the video.

Hi Edz! I understand how you feel, been there. Just accept for the moment that you have those uneasy feelings and know that it can only last for a short period of time. Sometimes we must accept our current situation because acceptance is a very essential part of the healing process. Try to divert your attention into doing things that you love. I believe your much stronger compared to what you are battling now!

Hi Oghenekevwe! I think it depends on the level of your interest. If you find that French is more appealing, then probably it's good if you focus on that first for your convenience.

Yes, why not? If native speaker is passionate to teach about his native language, then it's so possible. But if the learner wants a formal type of class and particular about grammar, he must find a speaker with a degree.
