Students can use some of their extra time while stuck at home to learn something new, such as another language or dances trending on social media. 

New language

Now is the best time to learn a new language. Apps like Duo Lingo make it easy for beginners and Rosetta Stone is even giving students free access for the next three months. 

Have a travel trip planned for when quarantine is over? Take the time now to learn the native language of the locals. 

TikTok dances

TikTok is a new social media trend that allows users to make short videos to share with others. Often, the videos come in the form of catchy songs with dances. 

Learning these dances is something fun that anyone can do by themselves or with the whole family. Those that want to make TikTok videos with friends can also share a screen and film over the internet.

Take a free class from Harvard

Harvard offers free courses online that anyone can take at any time.

The courses offer a variety of subjects and last anywhere between four and 15 weeks long. 

Students can get on the website right now and start a class in business, programming, humanities or many other subjects. 

Aside from learning something new at one’s own leisure, those who complete a course would also have the bragging rights of taking a class from Harvard.

Drive stick shift

There is no better time to learn to drive stick shift than when gas prices are close to dropping below one dollar. 

Driving stick is a useful life skill to have. The only obstacles are having a manual car and knowing someone who is willing to teach. 

How to cook

Learning how to cook is another essential life skill. It is also something easily built upon.

The more one knows, the more challenging recipes they can learn. 

Now that everyone is in quarantine, we have the time to watch baking shows and epic fail at baking before getting it right.
