Oh, and I thought it was good to learn new languages also at 60+, at least this is what I read in some places... Hmmm, try another language then! Maybe you'll find it more interesting and you'll be more motivated...
Well, the story here is that my son and his GF go on their hols to Spain twice a year.

I think I gave them the impression I was interested in Spanish by showing off what little I knew, and now whenever they visit (usually after their latest hols) I get 'tested' and invariably come up short

I didn't help matters by watching the Vuelta a Espana (see here) during their recent visit over the weekend and thus unwittingly setting a trap for myself but anyway I'm fine with my French & German and don't know what I'd do with Spanish, even if I did manage to learn it one day; hence my lack of motivation.
