When older adults learn another language, they don’t have the advantages of toddlers, whose minds are wired to learn two or three languages simultaneously. Nor do they have the flexibility of young adults who can acquire a native sounding accent. But this episode tells the story of adults who deploy the abilities that come with age and experience, that not only make them effective language learners, but also agents of some great blessings to others. This episode was written by Steve Leveen, and our producer Fernando Hernández (who also does our magical sound design and mixing). Check out the rest of our team at America the Bilingual dot com, including associate producer, and French teacher, Beckie Rankin, our brand and editorial director Mim Harrison, editorial consultant Maja Thomas, design director, Carlos Plaza and last and least, our bark-lingual mascot, Chet--A.K.A., Chetley von Mutt.
