80 Years Old and Learning Spanishby Erin
Part of what I do here at don Quijote is watch the news for articles about Spanish learning, Spanish courses and the Spanish language.
Today I ran into this story about an 80 year old woman who just finished a Spanish course at her local library in Arkansas. I'll have to ask the Director of Studies to confirm this, but I'm pretty sure the oldest don Quijote Spanish beginner (so far) was just about 80, as well.
I started learning Spanish en serio at 38, which I thought was a challenge, but here I am living and working in Spain. Just goes to show you: No, you never are too old to take on a new language - or get those you've already studied a bit into good working condition!
If you're under 80, think how much easier you have it than my hero of the day, Mary Stephens of Rogers, Arkansas, USA.
