Learning

You can learn at any age so don't be afraid to try. There are colleges that offer courses for everyone, in the day and evening, and other places to learn new skills and more. Some are informal places to learn, like cafes and libraries. Other places offer full courses. Local libraries can help you get started using a computer and offer the chance to learn new things, as well as a great range of books and activities.
