Abstract: What exactly is the relationship between age and language learning? There are numerous
myths and miscionseptions about the relative abilities or inabilities of language learners of different
ages. Adults mau learn even more efficiently than children. Furthermore, there is no loss of language
ability or language learning ability over time. Age is not a detriment to language learning, and by all
accounts, learning a second (third etc) language keeps the older language learners' mind active. People
of all ages can benefit from learning languages. When we talk about older adults researches have
shown that there is no decline in the ability to learn as people get older; the age is not a major factor in
language acquisition; the context in which adults learn is the major influence and older adults can be
good foreign language learners. Here, we are going to discuss four main issues:Aging and learning
ability, Older learner stereotypes, Age related factors in language learning, Classroom practices and
How to train aging brain.
Key words: age, learning, brain, foreign languages, train

1. INTRODUCTION

What exactly is the relationship between age and language learning? There are numerous myths and
misconceptions about the relative abilities or inabilities of language learners of different ages. Adults
may learn more efficiently than children. Furthermore, there is no loss of language ability or language
learning ability over time. Age is not a detriment to language learning, and by all accounts, learning a
second (third, etc.) language actually keeps the older language learners mind active. People of all ages
can benefit from learning languages. When we talk about older adults researches have shown that
there is no decline in the ability to learn as people get older; the age is not a major factor in language
acquisition; the context in which adults learn is the major influence and older adults can be good
language learners.
Here, we are going to consider 5 main issues:
Aging and learning ability,
Older learner stereotype,
Age related factors in language learning,
Classroom practice,
How to train aging brain.
