Hi there.

I don't necessarily think age should be a factor for studying.

If you feel ready as a person i.e. confidence wise, living away from family, being able to adapt to a new language, culture and environment etc. then go for it!

Best wishes

Once you get past primary school age, it doesn't really make much difference. The consensus among linguists tends to be that at around that age you lose the ability to pick up languages as easily, so generally the younger the better. But being able to study as a teenager or young adult in school/uni is particularly good as you'll tend to be more social, and there is a structure set up for you to make friends and be as immersed as possible. This gets more difficult as you get into the world of work and have less time to yourself
