Do you have any students, that despite the desire to get better, a reasonable amount of practice, performance, and attentiveness/attendance at lessons, just doesn't get better?

I teach German--not the same thing, but there's a lot of overlap--and have always believed that anyone can learn given adequate 1. motivation, 2. opportunity, and 3. effort. A deficiency in any of these three areas usually means that the student will either not learn or not progress beyond a certain point (usually the beginner high-low intermediate level). That said, I have had students who simply seem incapable of real progress, no matter what I do and no matter how hard they try. It's rare, but you will sometimes encounter people who have "an underlying impediment," as Kelly said.
