What is the easiest second language for an middle-aged person to learn?
I am 42, and have never spoken any language except English. I included age in the question because people at different stages in their life learn differently.
I have always wanted to learn how to speak another language, but it always got put on the back burner.
I have now changed career paths, and I feel this skill will be both beneficial to me, and the people I work with.
Right now, I am interested more in conversational speech, and not reading and writing in the language.
Any experience or suggestions would be appreciated.
