  1. Aprender idiomas no es facil, especialmente cuando una persona tiene 6o anos :), esta jubilada, pero le gusta mucho una nueva experiencia, la nueva posibilidad de ser ensenada, contenta y feliz. No entiendo a la gente que piensa que la vida es finada (o finita?) despues “being retired state”. “One is never too old to learn.”
    And another one that I like:” Every accomplishment starts with a decision to try!”

    Gracias por tantas cosas utiles y bonitas!

    Saludos!
