10 Skills You Can Learn In A Month Online

What can you learn in a month? Practically anything you want! With the internet filled with online courses, virtual classrooms, webinars, and lectures, it’s like having your own digital university at your fingertips, at a fraction of the cost of studying offline.

As vaccines triumph viruses, sharpening your skillset is going to come in handy, sooner than you think.

If the thought of studying puts you off, chill because there are many non-traditional learning tools at your disposal: YouTube videos, Pinterest tutorials, TikTok, and even Netflix documentaries carry many learning opportunities if you look beyond the clutter.
