Indonesian Taxi Driver Speaks English


If you think that "age" is a problem in language learning, watch this video.

Tarmedi, an Indonesian taxi driver, is 54 years old and have been working for 25 years as a taxi driver. Prior to that, he has worked as a pedicab driver and street vendor. He did not finish elementary school, was illiterate, however, the "young spirit" motivates him to learn English despite his age.

Since a video was uploaded by one of his passengers, he has appeared in several media and has been a trending topic in the country.



Do you know anyone that could be motivation to language learners? Thanks for reading. Feel free to share this article if you like. If you have any opinions, please leave a comment. I love reading them.
