Re: Any one here learn a second language as an adult?

i took 5 years of french in middle and high school, and i never used it. when i went to france as an adult, i was pretty useless, lol. you definitely need to be able to use it regularly, or you will lose it.

im studying american sign language now, to be an interpreter, and in asl 3, im by no means fluent. our intructors require us to attend a number of deaf events throughout the semester to get us that immersion.

So incredibly cool!

I would second finding a way to immerse yourself in the language. Not only to gain fluency in the language but to learn culture as well. Good luck!
