Too late to move abroad to learn language?

Recommended Posts

Hello, people. This is my first post on this forum. Please bear with me; I am currently 21 years old and from Norway. I have had German in school for a total of 6 years, and I am way above the expected level. I have already passed both a C1-course from the Goethe-Institute as well as a DSH-test from a German university with the grade of DSH-3 (top grade). Now my ''problem'' is the following; I really want to study medicine. And I really want to study medicine in Germany. I have quite good grades from High School, but I still need to add a few subjects to be able to apply for Medical School in Germany. So I have decided to enlist in the norwegian army. This enlistment will allow me to pursue the subjects I need, BUT; and this is basically the whole point of the thread; I wont be able to start medical school and thus move to Germany before after five years (Which means I'll be 26-27 when I move there). This petrifies me, as I am afraid that I won't have the same ability to learn German and properly immerse at that age as opposed to now. I really like Germany, so I would seriously consider to stay there , but I would like to learn the language as good and fluent/perfect as possible. Is this even possible at that age?

I am not looking for motivational ''you can do ANYTHING!! :)'' kind of speeches, but more objective answers from experiemantal and/or''scientific'' points of view; please be realistic. And of course - in situations of uncertainty, like these, nothing is better than a story of success! 

Thank you in advance!

      Hi, I probably have a C1 level & want to do a Proficiency C2 test. Therefore I'd like to do a course for about 2 months in an Asian country. I do speak English daily since years, read books, watch movies & use google in English. 
      My budget isn't particularly low but neither high. I can't or won't afford expensive classes in Great Britain, North America or Oceania. I traveled a lot in the last years & am able to feel at home in many places. I can imagine doing a course in Thailand, India, Vietnam or even in the Philippines (well, probably the least favourite as I really don't like the food in the Philippines but on the other hand it might be better as the locals speak English...)
       
      Any recommendations? It could be either a language school with group courses or a privat teacher which knows the requirements of the CPE test & can help me filling the gaps & pointing me in the right direction to pass the test... I estimate that 8 weeks of two private lessons per week or 8 weeks of 4 group lessons per week will be enough if I study hard beside classes...
       
      Has anybody done the same?

      http://mawercer.de/spell is an early attempt to train spelling in various languages.
      English, German, bengali, and many more coming soon -> write to support to have some added.
      It remembers which words you got right doesn't ask multiple times about the same word.
      You can use it from mobile phone.
      Feedback welcome

      What is Lingodeer?
      Many of you might be familiar with the app called "Duolingo." Lingodeer is very similar, but alongside the same style of gamified lessons that Duolingo provides: Lingodeer offers professionally made grammar notes on every single skill, features full native audio recordings on every word and sentence, has built in grammar review features, has a global leaderboard (And friends leaderboard) for competition, features video stories at the end of every skill, has built in pronunciation practice (Sentence shadowing capabilities), and features 10 languages to learn (with Italian on the way) taught in 13 languages. The app is available on iOS and Android. 

      If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me (I run their online forums as volunteer work and have followed the app since it was released, I have also completed the first half of Japanese and Korean on the app).
