When you’re on holiday it can be too easy to just do nothing but lounge about, hangout with friends and play computer games.
They say that too much of a good thing can be bad for you, so it could be worth looking into spending a couple of hours a day doing something productive like online learning.
Depending of what stage of education you are at you could use the Internet for learning English online to brush up on grammar and spelling, we all know just how much we can rely on spell check these days! There are lots of flash games that will make the experience more fun and you can always get your friends and family involved to compete for high scores and bragging rights.
You could use some of the time to help a younger member of the family learn math online or any other useful subject. Kids love learning new things and they aren’t afraid of technology either, in fact they thrive on it. If you are going to help somebody else learn it’s important to keep it light and be very patient with them, everybody learns at a different pace and we can take a lot of things for granted.
You don’t always have to stay in the comfort of your home during the holidays to get a learning experience. On top of all the amusement parks and cinemas you can check out museums and art exhibitions you could go off on your own steam or check out one of the guided tours of the displays/exhibition.
