An expression or saying meaning "insist"
 
Dear colleagues, I īm looking for an expression or saying meaning "To continue with some behavior or course of action", or " to do something over and over again until you get a result". I have an expression in my languange, but I can īt think of one in English. It came out when my students told me that it īs good of me to "insist" so much on them learning new vocabulary, because in the end they īll get some good result.
Thank you!!

Hello!
 
I think "persist" may be one verb for that specific case.
Or "persevere".
Maybe a native speaker can be of greater help.

Yes, "persist" and "persevere" are just right. We also have the expression "to keep at it".
