Age and language learning

Does age affect language learning? I am sure it does for young children, but beyond that I think we can learn languages at any age.

Here is a video by Steve Kaufmann, the person behind The Linguist blog and Lingq, explaining why we should never give up trying to learn a new language however old we are.

There is not a transcript available, but if you activate the CC option on the YouTube screen you will get a fairly accurate transcription of everything Steve says.
