How can language progress not be helpful? When that progress keeps us tied to methods or resources that aren't moving us in the right direction. Maybe we're taking in some words and grammar, but it isn't what we need in order to get to the next step of what we want to talk about. Maybe the resource is super boring, and we hate using it, but we're making some progress, so we keep holding on, grudgingly coming back to it. Just because you're learning something doesn't mean you're making the right kind of progress in your language journey.
