Never too old to learn a language

By Frederik De Vos

I get emails every now and then from people asking me, "I'm not so young anymore, can I still learn a new language?"

And the answer is "Yes, absolutely." There are plenty of people who've done it.

It may be true that it is more of a challenge for older people, who tend to learn more slowly, but ultimately, it is only a matter of time before you will master the new language.

Perhaps all you need to do is to focus on the benefits to motivate you. If you live in the country where that language is spoken, it will certainly transform your life and reduce the sense of loneliness that comes from being "different" and not understanding what others are talking about.

It's never too late to learn. Have a look at our tips and just get started!
