its never too late
a few of you know that i give Turkish lessons in Alanya and have now been doing them for a few months..since February..and we have a great time.

İve been amazed at the enthusiasm of one of the girls..she will be 75 on Friday.

Her name is Val and im sure her hubbie wont mind me saying this...hes a member here...she is the most surprising woman ive ever met.
i had doubts that she would be able to keep up..but shes surpassed everybody.

She does her homework faithfully, and asks me all sorts of questions about vowel harmony, the subject object verb of a sentence i have to keep one step ahead of her. Shes got to grips with suffixes and consonant mutation was a walk in the park for her. and after a session with the language shes off to curves(gym) for a physical workout.

So when you think you are too old at 45, 55, 65 think again..think of Val..you're never too old..thats just an excuse.:biggrin1:
