Lesson Transcript

In this lesson, you will learn 3 reasons you are never too old to learn a language and to also learn 3 ways our learning system can help people of all ages to study efficiently.
Number one, seniors have better focus.
Learning a new language in your 50’s or 60’s may actually be easier than learning as a teenager or young adult! More mature adults can better focus on the details necessary to master a new language. Older people are also more dedicated to their goals and put more work into achieving them. Seniors are better able to focus on completing lessons and reaching goals.
There are a lot of distractions out there these days for young people. There's everything from Facebook to Instagram, and all the usual drama of daily life at work and at school. Seniors are typically less concerned with these kinds of things and are better at focusing on tasks until completion. This is extremely important for language study, where regular practice and attention to detail are key.
Not only are you never to old to learn, you may have some advantages over younger learners. Our language learning program has a number of special tools to make learning a new language in your 50's or 60's easy. You'll use the same resources as a tech-savvy teenager.
Number two, learning is vital to healthy and happy living.
Learning is actually vital to your health! Doing things like playing word games, doing puzzles and even using online platforms like Luminosity do help keep the mind nimble. But nothing compares to learning a second language in terms of health benefits for your mind. Learning another language may be one of the very best retirement hobbies you can pick up! You can also apply your second language knowledge when you travel.
Number three, there are health benefits to learning new things after the age of 60.
Learning a second language increases the number of neural pathways in the brain. Forging these new neural pathways help you code and sort the new language you are learning!
In addition, there are other brain health benefits associated with learning a new language. Here's a list of benefits bilingual people can enjoy:
Higher Overall General Intelligence
Better Memory and Memorization Skills
Better Perception of Surroundings
Better Focus, Concentration, and Attention to Detail
