Staying at home has become the norm in 2021. With the majority of the UK working from home again, we’re spending most of our time indoors. However, just because you are stuck at home all day does not mean that you should stop learning new things. Here are three ways to keep learning from the comfort of your own home.
A virtual study group or work club can prove an invaluable resource in your quest to succeed. Studying away from friends and tutors can be difficult. Learning with other people, then, can be a much-needed change and a way to combat any problems you come across, together. You could gather a group of friends, set up weekly study sessions or virtual work-from-home calls. It’s a good way to mix things up and challenge each another while keeping learning fresh.
Apart from searching everything up on Google, try listening to Podcasts or watching informative YouTube videos to learn new information. These are great ways to delve into interesting topics such as History, Geography and current affairs. You can also use resources such as audiobooks, news platforms and online courses such as Oxford Open Learning to increase your knowledge and sharpen your existing skills. There’s an endless possibilities out there!
Delve into the wonderful world of apps. Download Amazon Kindle on your phone. (I read in grocery lines too or when I’m on the bus). Feedly and Flipboard also have great apps for learning new skills. Duolingo helps you learn a new language for free. There are all kinds of apps out there that are designed to make learning at home easier.
