    She is really accomplished for her age.

    Does the following phrase sentence (corrected) sound old-fashioned? What does it mean for you personally?

    She is really accomplished for her age.

    No, it's not old-fashioned.

    She has done things a person her age would not normally have done. Or have been expected do.
