We’re never too old to learn or explore something new, but we can grow older if we stop learning and exploring.

Research has proved there’s a direct link between education and everyday mental agility. Reason enough.

Learning as an adult is invigorating.

Blessed with the wisdom of years, we can dip into rich reservoirs of maturity and experience to make learning much easier than it was the first time. We’re self-motivated, able to drive and challenge ourselves from ‘within’ – all the learning resources we need are already at our fingertips.

Perhaps the biggest plus is the difference it can make to the ‘health’ of our brains. Learning anything new, especially a foreign language, dramatically reduces the risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. When we learn a foreign language, we switch between different sounds, concepts and grammatical structures; skills that encourage dexterity and provide natural training to keep the brain in peak condition.

But aside from the neurological benefits, there are many other advantages to learning a new subject or improving skills.

Adults who show enthusiasm for learning set the perfect example to their children and grandchildren. If you embrace education, the chances are they will too.

Adult learning is sociable too.

Not only will you learn a new skill, but you’ll also have the opportunity to meet and connect with people who share a similar interest.
