I would like to emphasize that ANYONE at ANY AGE can learn a new language. It’s a great workout for your brain! And it helps stave off dementia. Other benefits include: having a better understanding of another culture, a better understanding of your mother tongue and own culture, opening your world to new friends, an additional skill to add to your resumé which can lead to more money in your pocket.
My original reason for learning Spanish was that having a Hispanic background, I wanted to better understand “my” past and to be able to tell the Spanish speaking telemarketers to remove our number from their calling list.
What’s holding you back? Why would you want to learn a new language?
Have I sold you yet? Want some guidance in getting started on your language learning journey? Try here: Fluent in 3 Months. That’s the blog and language learning community of Benny, the Irish Polyglot. There are LOADS of ideas and supportive people there. And better yet, many of them are free to almost free! (Not $100s like a popular language learning program nor $1000s like the university classes I took.)
