Learning for a Lifetime


Listen here

“Use it or lose it” is an English expression which means that the brain needs to keep active throughout one’s life in order to function well.

Learning does not stop when we leave school. There is always something new to learn no matter how old we are — whether it be a new skill, a new language or a new hobby.

Moreover, learning something new can be a lot of fun.

The more we learn, the more interesting our lives become, and the more interesting we are to others as well.


to function: to work.
