Learn a New Language!

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Andrew Weil speak at a health fair held in Henderson, Nevada. His topics - Aging Gracefully and Alzheimer's Disease. He was quite fascinating to listen to, and the one thing I especially remember he mentioned was that we should never quit learning new things.  HIs suggestion for one of the best things you could learn to help your brain - a new language. Learning a new language makes use of a part of your brain you haven't used since you learned your first language.

My library district offers the first 2 levels of Rosetta Stone for residents with current library cards. Do you have any idea what it costs to get the first 2 levels of Rosetta Stone on your own?  It's not cheap!  Go to your library's website and see if they offer anything like this - there is also a program called Transparent Language and one called Muzzy for kids.  If your library offers any of these programs - go for it! 

And don't forget -    

If you haven't read Episodes 1 - 4,
you've always got the time!
