Italian term or phrase: essere apprendere
I am having trouble with this term in the following sentence. I have cut and pasted exactly as it appears in the document.

La terza età è una fase della vita in cui si può e si deve essere apprendere perché l’impegno e il coinvolgimento in compiti e contesti educativi permette all’anziano di esercitare il proprio diritto alla cittadinanza.

English translation:the sentence is simply wrong!
Explanation:
I think they meant "essere pronti / disposti ad apprendere". Otherwise, the sentence would be absolutely meaningless.
