The more you fall, the easier you get up

baek12-1In Korean drama Mr Baek episode 12, when asked why he choses to do activities like rock climbing, the son’s response was as follows.

“I found it fun once I started to get into it.  At first it was too difficult.  I realized after falling a few times, how and where to hold on and step.

It works the same way in life, doesn’t it?  The more you fall and get knocked down, the easier you find a way to get up.”

Language learning is like that.  The more mistakes you make, the more you learn, and the quicker you can pick yourself up.
