TECHNOLOGY has made it easier for us to learn a lot – subjects that you once had to enrol in a school to learn – languages, music, Bible knowledge, computer programming, etc.
Smart phones, Ipods, Ipads or Iphones are making it very easy to learn almost anything.
You know, I have been talking about languages lately.
There are so many places that you can go to on the net to learn a language – or even get in touch with people to learn and practise communicating in a foreign language.
There are places where you can get the basics in our Pacific languages – sadly, there are more on Polynesian languages than our PNG or other Melanesian languages.
Music is another area where you can advance your skills and interest.
Back in the 1970s and 1980s, it was very hard to learn a favourite song, much less getting the correct lyrics of songs.
Today it is very easy.
And, with YouTube, you can watch your favourite guitarist or pianist playing a favourite tune.
It enriches and motivates you in your plans to play a musical instrument … or, (if you would dare) create your own music too.
Do not let your resources be wasted on silly stuff – like wasteful chatting that benefits no-one.
Make use of the tool you have (Smartphone, Iphone, etc).
At the end of the year, it would be nice to note how much you have learned over the months learned.
(Mind you, the third month has started.)
I have my own goals in learning stuff and am on it. May you too.
