Super article on polyglots

Do NOT miss this article on the BBC website today, esp. if you are interested in learning and achieving fluency in several languages!  I added a comment and I hope they publish it!!=) (They didn't, but I wanted to say that I hoped that article would nail the coffin lid on the myth that men and native English speakers were verging on genetically unable to learn other languages!)

When should I start on new language? I'm moving into intermediate territory with my German currently. Would it be okay to start now? Or should I wait a bit longer?

Another hyperpolyglot post, but that first sentence? Yikes, sounds like the A1 problem you were talking about!

The original article is better. http://www.economist.com/node/21542170
