Grandparents are so special...

 

Very happy for that family and to read this story. It is much better than the crazy junk that goes on in the rest of the news world.

That's so great.

My grandma who lives in Canada for 20 years can barely speak english (singlish we call it). I doubt she can even write a paragraph.

For an 85 year old to learn English, so efficient to communicate with her grand children, we all should learn from her. That show that you are never too late to learn.

Wow. That's nice. Wish my grandparents can learn English so I won't have to take on the job of being a translator at home for my grandparents.

That's pretty impressive of them to actually be able to learn a new language at that age. Makes me feel so bad for saying it's too hard to improve on my Chinese and learn another language like Korean or Japanese.
