We show you the possibilities for online learning
It is important to keep your mind active to ensure you have a good quality of life as you age.
Learning something new is one way of achieving this.
You do not need to go to a classroom to engage in this learning.
No matter where you are as long as you have a computer and adequate internet connection there are hundreds of free courses for you to participate in. As well as learning interesting new things you interact with your fellow students who may be anywhere in the world.
There are also hundreds of courses that require a fee to be paid.
If you need help with any aspect of enrolling for a course contact us and we will assist you.
Some of the things you can learn about.
It has been shown that a problem for older people is having someone to talk to. This is obviously particularly the case for people who are in the country. Here is the opportunity to talk all day and be helping the person on the other end of the phone.
You can assist people in other countries wanting to speak English by volunteering to help.
You will remain at home and talk to them on the internet.
You will need a computer on the internet and connection to Skype.
The advantage to you of volunteering to help is both social and also exercising your brain. You will have read that both of these things need to be maintained to keep healthy.
We can provide tours related to your learning
If you are learning about wine making there is a tour to wineries when they are making their wine.
If you are learning history we can show you relevant tours to your study.
Many courses obviously lend themselves to experiencing relevant tours to see what you have learnt about.
Are you learning about Thai cooking. We can take you to Thailand to practice the real thing, visit the markets to see the ingredients and sample the food you love.
Carers can Volunteer in Thailand
If you are a carer, still active, want a break, and want an experience helping people in Thailand to communicate in English you could volunteer in Nong Khai, Thailand. While longer periods of time are preferred a couple of weeks doing something completely different may be just what you need.
