Learning German in middle age
I'm just beginning my German studies, at 52 years of age.
I adore linguistics and language, and have a background in speech pathology/communications disorders, so my love of language is reflected in my career choice.
My question is: do you think it would be possible to become fluent in German at my age, to the point that I could translate German to English as a possible career? I have read of Mary Hobson, who began studying Russian in her 60s, but she sounds like an exception.
