It’s never too late to start learning Russian

I found this encouraging and interesting video about 91-year old Mary Hobson who started learning Russian at the age of 56 and now is translating Russian writers: https://youtu.be/FD4WXQaEXNo.

In this video she gives some tips that are useful for learning other languages as well.

That‘s great to have it confirmed by native speaker that she indeed reached an advanced level. Thanks!

@Rob

I‘m glad that you liked it as a fellow learner. Yeah, especially because Russian is said to be difficult, it’s good to know that perseverance goes a long way.

Miriam, thanks for sharing the video. It's very inspiring and helpful to know that we can all continue learning- no need to become discouraged and give up. As a Russian learner I found it very interesting.
