Duolingo invited me to take up another language the other day, as if learning Russian wasn't brain-boggling enough on its own... But then, some days I only spend five or ten minutes doing the exercises, so it's no surprise if I'm struggling.

Sixty minutes a day is an impressive commitment to learning.

I've just got an "It's now or never" feeling about learning Welsh to the point where I'm truly fluent. I'm 65, I've recently retired and I do, finally, have enough time spare for intensive learning. Also, learning a language is supposed to stave off Alzheimers, so that's a plus. But if want to be able to use Welsh confidently in the community and take part in meetings where Welsh is the main language, I need to put in the effort now because in 5-10 years time, it'll be too late and there won't be any point.
