Some of the notebooks George Washington kept as a young man are still in
existence. They show that he was learning Latin, was very interested in the basics
of good behavior in society, and was reading English literature.

At school he seems only to have been interested in mathematics. In fact
his formal education was surprisingly brief for a gentleman, and incomplete.
Unlike other young Virginian gentlemen of that day, he did not go to the College
of William and Mary in the Virginian capital of Williamsburg. In terms of formal
training then, Washington contrasted sharply with some other early American
Presidents such as John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. In later
years, Washington probably regretted his lack of intellectual training. He never
felt comfortable in a debate in Congress. And because he never learned French
and could not speak directly to French leaders, he did not visit the country he
admired so much. Thus, unlike Jefferson and Adams, he never reached Europe.
