That is amazing what you have achieved and most sincere congratulations.. As someone who worked with a diverse public for many years I do know that for many people your age the task of mastering a foreign language seems impossible...and it is a misconception: there are no age limits to studying languages.. there are really no limits except for those that we set for ourselves with our minds.. Continue well on your journey..

Thank you, Christina! Muchas gracias, Yes I do practice all four languages and study them at the same time....well, I grew up to certain age in Russia ,so I am fluent in that one, but it still needs constant practice.. the other 2 (Fr/Ita ) are my ancestry, so I study these...Spanish I just started..but it is related to those..and I like it.. your comment is very kind,thank you best wishes..!
