  1. Nothing is impossible. There would be a desire. Of course, with the return, not everything is as fast as it was in barefoot childhood. But you probably have more time.

  2. Studies show that the ability to learn does not decline with age. But this is not the determining factor. You can learn a new language at any age, but gradually it becomes more difficult. Complexity does not mean impossibility.

    Gradually, learning technologies are becoming more advanced. The mere appearance of DuoLingo can significantly change the language learning process.

    Follow the simple tips and learn the language will be easier -�lifehacker.ru

    Based on my personal experience, I can say that it is impossible to learn a foreign language normally in isolation from a suitable language environment. It is worth finding an interlocutor via Skype and practicing communication in the chosen language.

    I came to Latvia with a diploma in English at school and university, and then it turned out that the children speak better than I do. Because they often travel to other countries and communicate with their peers in English.

  3. I have a friend who lives in Israel, she is about 40 years old. She only knew Hebrew and English, but in the last four years (I can't lie), she probably learned Russian and Chinese quite well, and Chinese is so good that she now works with Chinese tourists as a guide. She may have studied Chinese before, but she definitely didn't know Russian a few years ago, and now she speaks with us quite fluently. So don't be discouraged in advance) Of course, everything is individual, everyone remembers differently, but in any case, it is useful to train the brain at any age. The more you use it, the longer it will stay in working order. And you will still learn the language with due diligence, the road will be mastered by the walking one)

  4. After a certain critical period, it is almost impossible for a person to master speech activity, and not language. If a child grew up outside the speech environment (Mowgli children) before the age of 7, then most likely they will not speak when they return to the speech environment after this age.�

    And a foreign language can be taught at any age, moreover, there are a lot of studies that confirm that learning foreign languages in old age dramatically slows down degenerative processes (if the language is from another group of languages).
