Friday Group Discussion: Age

Hey everybody!  Sorry to post this so late at night!

Here is our next discussion topic for Friday (November 21st).  The topic is age.

As usual, please prepare at least two questions.  🙂

We will start the discussion with one or two beginner questions, and then one or two intermediate questions, and with the rest of the time we will ask the advanced questions!

If you are a student of mine, I hope to see you at one of the discussion groups. If anybody (student or not) has any questions about this blog, please let me know: Post a comment here, find me on twitter, or email me through my website. Thanks!
