You Can Learn a Language at Any Age

"Recent neurological studies show that you can learn a language at any age. In fact, 'Learning a new language in old age is so good for improving and maintaining the memory generally. Because it requires intense focus, studying a new language turns on the control system for plasticity and keeps it in good shape for laying down sharp memories of all kinds.'
