Hello, everyone. I'm so confused that I need your help.

In English conference books, I found the example sentences using a noun after the first comparative like this;
The more facts you've got at your fingertips, the more easy it is to persuade people.

I wonder if the sentence below is make sense or not.
When we try to learn foreign languages, the younger age we start at, the faster we will make progress.

This sounds a little strange to me.

Thank you.

    It's understandable but personally I'd say: the younger we are when we start, the faster we will make progress.
