In “How to Find Balance When Too Much Self Doubt Gets in The Way” and “How Has Google Affected the Way Students Learn?” the authors discuss learning and success. Using examples from the texts as well as your own experience as an English learner, respond to the following questions: What are some obstacles to successful learning and how can you use them to your advantage?
