What courses for adults can you find abroad?

There are a plethora of classes and skills to learn in every city. These can add to your enjoyment and understanding of the culture, as well as help you meet new friends. Need some ideas?

    Common Courses:
  • Cooking: Learn about the local cuisine and ingredients. This is a great class to help you with everyday skills. Cooking is a gateway into a nation's culture and style.
  • Dance: Learn samba in Rio, Hula in Hawaii, ballet in Russia. Get moving in the local groove
  • Art: Try your hand at art. Learn the cultural history of your area and gain a creative outlet, like the delicate art of calligraphy in China.
  • Athletics: Sports clubs can be a good way to ease tension and try something new. Try Martial Arts in Asia, or rugby in Australia.

Where to Look

Community centres and shopping areas are good places to find class listings. University and local colleges may also have low cost classes for students and non-students.

Social Media can also be helpful. Check Facebook for groups in your area or try checking out Twitter.

Forums are also useful places to look. Try EasyExpat's forums for suggestions.
