It’s Never Too Late to Learn English
Samuel Malheiros is proof that one is never too old to start studying a foreign language.
Samuel, an 80-year-old lawyer from Vitoria, Brazil, is now in the United Kingdom taking a Kaplan English course in Oxford.
He already speaks French, Spanish and Italian – in addition to his native Portuguese. However, he decided it was time to learn the most widely understood language: English.
“Being in the same school with students of different nationalities means we have to speak English with each other all the time. It’s challenging and I enjoy it,” Samuel said.
“My journey will not end here. When I finish studying I plan to continue traveling around the world and keep on speaking and learning English,” he added.
