Sort out your fun-life! Join local talk and lecture groups. Follow, friend and meet other enthusiasts. Talks and lectures and a whole range of leisure activities.
Talks, lectures and courses are ways of pursuing knowledge for personal or professional reasons. A talk is a one-off, informal presentation on any of a wide variety of topics, whereas a lecture is more formal and usually forms part of an on-going, long term course of education, often at college or university level. A course is usually a short term series of classes often undertaken for leisure purposes or for professional development.
One of the secrets of happiness is life-long learning. Study something you overlooked at school - whether a language, art, science, maths or humanities, or learn a new skill or craft. Whether you do it to further your career or just for fun, learning something new is always worthwhile.
