Give it a go

FONT SIZE: A+ A-
lifelong learning

One of the best things about living in Australia is being able to give things a go. Trying something new is a great way to broaden horizons and meet new people and there are many opportunities available to enable you learn a new skill. 

Whether it’s a new language, art history, Asian cooking or yoga, community colleges and learning centres throughout the states and territories offer flexible and affordable learning programmes. Often supported or funded by the Government, the aim is to equip people with life skills, or give them a social element to learning.

If the polls are correct, I think you should forward this to Mr. Rudd.

Self-development is an integral part of prosperity in different spheres. And I think that trying something new broaden horizons that's why we should try new things as many as possible. As for me, I always tries to do the best and as the result I am a blogger at http://www.essaypenguins.com/blog/thesis-topics. So, I think,we should move forward and never give up.

I personally believe that trying something new is a great way to broaden horizons and meet new people. I always try to attend most of the events in my area and near by areas. This enables me meet more people and learn new things.
Recently I visited a community called http://www.mbafrog.com/ . It is a community of people doing distance education MBA. Learned many new things from them.
