Learning German - When to Change

Right now we are learning German for our time in Vienna, Austria. We will be helping a mission team in Vienna for about two years.

I'm listening to a recording of a lesson that involves a lot of quiz and response, so I'm constantly trying to think of the word or phrase. After an hour, I'm exhausted. It takes a lot of energy for a brain to lay down new neural pathway. But, the next time I listen to the recording, it's easier - and the next is even easier.

When you look for purposeful, vision-driven ways to change, make sure that you implement the changes a little bit at a time. Getting people to create some new neural pathways will take some effort. Let them get comfortable with that change before you move one to the next one.
