Thank you for your lovely comment! You're absolutely right, learning languages itself is a skill.

The good news is that it gets better. I probably should have added somewhere... the second language is by far the hardest. Once you know a few, you're quicker to recognize the important structural differences, and get better at not translating everything in your head.

Best of luck with your Spanish!
