An Indian research suggests learning another language could help delaying dementia and could be greatly beneficial to older people.
I offer to visit nursing homes, play old French music, teach simple conversational French and songs people might know like Edith Piaf,
la vie en rose, French adaptation of old English songs.
Playing music older people like can make them feel good and revive happy memories.
The older generation knows interesting French.
Many can remember some French and quote "la plume de ma tante" my aunty's ink pen, "le singe est dans l'arbre" the monkey is in the tree.
It an ice breaker for sure! Something to laugh about together! Just like"excuse my French"!
Learning another language can be a lot of fun!
