    70 odd years
    I been learning one language
    still working on it

    But now
    "senior moments"
    My wife and children finish my thought when I loose/misplace the "next word".
    I'll most likely die without having full command of english.
    (sigh)

    My beloved spouse has 3-4 languages and is adept at music
    My one son has 3 languages and is adept at music
    My other son has one language(as have I) and is not adept at music(me too)
    I had an uncle who could listen to a song, pick up a guitar and play it, and he was fluent in 7 languages...

    I suspect that a facility with music and facility with languages utilize the same neural pathways/areas of the brain(?).
