Carlton, you've disclosed the great secret! The world may soon come to an
end! I am sure that you're quite right; if only we will spend 30 minutes a
day on language study BEFORE BREAKFAST (although I've found coffee helps),
we can learn any language well!
No, of course, the real secret is indeed regularity of use, the unremitting
daily practice, the very same thing that anyone who plays a musical
instrument knows only too well. It may even work at other times of the day,
depending upon the individual's own body chemistry.
