Anyone else really bad with learning languages?

I can get 90's and make sense of most other classes but I hit a wall with Spanish class and barely get by with a C or a B.

I do very well with languages but I do know people in the same situation as yourself.
It helps a lot if you speak two languages to begin with.
And, like Dirge Humani said, age is a factor.
If you learn to speak other languages at a younger age it is much easier to learn them opposed to learning them when you're older.

I wud love to learn another language, but i have a very short attention span. I was aweful at french and German so when i got the chance to ditch them at the end of Year 9 i gladly chose to do no languages. Apart from English. Which is piss-easy.

Age has lots to do with it, how old are you?

Already in highschool SPanish 11, so yeah i'm pretty old when it comes to learning this.

I would drop the class cause it's not required but i'm being told it's necessary to go into a better college and i've already started the class.

As for what I have problems in it's a lot of the adjectives and conjugations...i'm bad with these in English so I pretty much screw up in Spanish class.

Oh well I asked the teacher to list some stuff to study and i'm reviewing that tonight. Hopefully it'll help.

Tu no estupido. Languages can be harder for some people to learn then others. It also depends on the language you are taking. Spanish is pretty easy for me but I don't think I could ever learn something like Dutch or German.

I have to take french this year (Best I can do is count to ten in french. I am not joking. Like, I'm serious, I dont even know what "eleven" in french is.), but I'm switching to Mandarin next year (It's my 2nd language).

Lol.
WE just learned about this in Psychology.
There are things called critical periods. Some theory stated something around the lines of, "If you don't learn a language by the time you hit puberty, you won't be able to learn it."
So that's why you're having trouble. lol I mean, I'm probably way off because we didn't study it, it was just something quickly mentioned, but I'm guessing that's why.

I love languages!

I take Latin myself, so I don't really "speak" two. I do know a decent variety of words in other languages though from my Latin studies. I also goof around with Rosetta Stone too and whatnot.

Yeah, I have a lot of trouble with Spanish
But that could be because my teacher last year sucked
