Napoleon as a student

The study was not a feature in which Napoleon Bonaparte excelled, which he was definitely brought to the military art.

The future Emperor of the French and master of half the world, he was an indifferent student, and no special skills, poor letterare both materials and life sciences.

In a more mature age, which ended the long political experience, now only and exiled to St. Helena, Napoleon decided to finally learn English, the language of the enemy that he was ashamed of not knowing; a few years ago a private museum bought, to expose them to the public, the writings that the former general worked at that time for practice, all peppered with coarse grammatical errors.

Apparently Napoleon undertook, but he had little success..
