He is going to turn 100 next November, but this won’t prevent him from realizing one of his dreams: learn English! Gianni Guaita is indeed a man who lives in Florence and is now the oldest user for the app Babbel, which helps learn foreign languages both in the web and through the smartphone.

Gianni is a great grandfather and this is one of the reasons why he decided to take a step in his life to make everybody happy: as his niece has an English nanny, it’s hard sometimes to communicate with both of them. And as he admitted, this new lessons are now making his life busier than it used to be before.
