You can teach old dogs new tricks, and in the case of people, you can certainly teach old people new ideas, too! You may not be “old”, but perhaps you are not a traditional student anymore. You are not boring and you are not dead…you still have interests, dreams and goals. Adult learning is a great way for non-traditional students to learn new things.
Adult learning is a way for those who still want to learn something new to do so without being in a traditional college setting. It is true that some colleges do offer adult learning opportunities, but most of the time, these are not the same types of classes. For one, adult learning classes do not offer college credit. Also, they are generally cheaper in terms of tuition rates. Another advantage of these courses is that you can take almost anything you are interested in and be around others that are just like you.
If you are interested in learning some new, check into the many adult learning opportunities in your area. Local colleges and recreation centers are good places to start. You can also do an Internet search to help you find just what you are looking for. Maybe you want to learn how to paint using pastels. Or, maybe you are interested in learning massage or gourmet cooking. How about learning to decorate cakes or how to make money using your writing skills? Maybe you are new to the computer age and want to learn to use the Internet. With adult learning classes, you can do that, too.
With adult learning classes, the possibilities are endless. You may not be an 18-year-old college student anymore, but there are choices for you if you want to learn something new. So, find something you don’t know and get out there and learn!
