The best time to learn language is in earlychildhood.
you can literally make ~90% of kids learn 2 or more languages before they reach the age of 5 because they absorb a lot more info then than as adults
we filter a lot of crap out and forget too, yo
This has actually been shown to not be true. Studies regarding the language learning abilities of adults vs children have shown adults are far better equipped to learn a language. Kids appear to learn better and faster because they have pretty much nothing to do all day, nothing to distract them, no obligations, so all they do is absorb. Their absorption is less efficient, but it's also a lot "cleaner," so to speak. Children also have to learn a language. They want something, they can't express what they want, so they learn how to out of necessity. This is a magnificent incentive to learn a language. This is why famous polyglots harp on creating an immersive environment for language learners: if your computer is in Japanese, and you needed that report done five minutes ago, you're going to learn how to read Japanese, or at least the parts relevant to the task at hand.

This has been demonstrated in a some anecdotal cases I can think of off the top of my head. One was a man who learned Mandarin Chinese (considered by many to be the hardest language to learn) in a mere 6 months. He got into China not knowing a word of Chinese, and within 6 months he had obtained native-level fluency. The Chinese don't (or at least didn't, during this man's visit) accommodate for Westerners. He had to learn in order to survive. Another is a man who created a "Little Japan" in his home. After 18 months (significantly longer, but still impressive, imo) he had obtained native-level Japanese without having ever gone to Japan.
