Thanks so much! The article was fascinating. Keeping my brain sharp is one of the major reasons I am on this site, and it was wonderful to read of living proof that it works so well.

Thanks for posting! I've been trying to get my mom to sign up after years of hearing her lament about never learning French. This just might push her to do it!

Yes! Excellent article and have found it to be true for myself. Working at alternate language acquisition is an extremely beneficial way to keep mentally young...or regain youth. I started with ancient Hebrew, and thanks to Duo am now effectively re-learning Spanish, and have thrown in French just for fun! My studies have been like going on an adventure or unraveling a mystery. LOVE IT!
