Life, love and language

Is late language learning a trend?

Buenos dias amigos,

Hablo muy poco Espaňola. I speak very little Spanish – still! But I have learnt the all important phrase: ?Donde esta el baňo?, or where is the bathroom? (that first question mark should be upside down but my keyboard doesn’t do that). And when all else fails I can shout ayudarme! – Help!!

By the way, have a look at Sean Silverthorne’s article on baby boomers and the comments, a new generation of 60+ are apparently opting out of retirement in favour of a life long career/s and learning new skills – seems we’re just following a trend trying to learn a new language!

  1. As a baby boomer myself I am always looking for something new to do. Learning a new language was probably not something I ever thought of but the idea is beginning to appeal to me. Perhaps we will meet sometime in Costa Rica
