Our desire can influence us to learn about almost everything that exists in this world. But the constraints of time and lengthy periods of learning a course can put the curious cat inside you to sleep. 

However, the 21st century that brought along with it the various fields of specializations has also brought some simple means of learning.

Free demo lectures are also offered by many institutions to help you understand what you are signing up for.

Every reader dreams of writing his or her book which they can publish someday. So why not begin chasing that dream with a few pages at a time?

5. Learning a new language

There’s nothing more sassy than being able to speak in a foreign language, at a foreign place. Being well-versed with a few more languages other than your mother tongue puts you at ease with different people from different places. It also gives you the privilege of visiting different places without the fear of the unknown. 

There are several online applications such as Duolingo and Babbel that can aid you with your efforts. 

6. Learn Typing

Nothing wastes your time like having to search for the keys you need to press while typing an important document. Learning to type familiarises you with the positioning of the keys that can help you type faster than before. I would recommend the Typing Master portal to learn typing. It comprises tutorials, tests, and games to get you better acquainted with your keyboard. 

7. Learning a new sport

Unless you are looking up some tricks and moves of the game on the internet, this activity might require you to go beyond what an electronic device can offer. Learning a new sport can help build a rapport between you and your team. It improves your skill of coordination and sportsmanship. The pleasure of seeing the shuttlecock soaring in the air after swinging a badminton racket at it has always been incompatible for me.  

These are some of the activities you can start learning today.
