Obviously a massive amount of language acquisition is done on your on time and energy, but I'm interested in long term investment in a couple new languages, and have considered the advantages/disadvantages of one on one time with a tutor. Mostly because when it comes down to it, in classes with other people I always feel that the pace is about ten times slower than what is profitable for me. I suppose it's the same for a lot of you here, but there are just a lot of reasons why classes are starting to seem less and less like time effectively spent. I don't need to be told what second person plural means, or what a conjunction is, and I don't need to do exercises identifying where object pronouns are in English sentences in order to be able to understand that they are placed before the verb in French. Hopefully you get my point. So I'm wondering if you all have found learning with a tutor to be very time efficient in this regard. Thanks very much for your feedback!
P.S. Also would appreciate thoughts on tutor vs. self-study. I'm mostly afraid of self-study because I don't want to teach myself a million things wrong with no one there to correct me.
