    Re: question

    Where's your cousin from and how old is she? These could both affect her. If she really is a beginner, try starting on smaller bits of language. If she comes from a very different language background, simply learning indiviudal words can be a challenge in itself. In the last six months I have lived in Cambodia and Japan, where each word has to be learned slowly, and is normally forgotten the next day.
