You are never too old to keep learning.
If you thought learning comes with an age limit, it is time you change your mind. There are many examples of people in this world who have pursued learning at later stages of their lives, for their passion for it. One example is Karthyayani Amma – a nonagenarian from the Indian state of Kerala, who passed the literacy examination with flying colours at the age of 96. She had to stop her education due to responsibilities in life; but, ever since she got the opportunity to continue her education in her nineties, Karthyayani Amma has remained unstoppable.
There are many such people who exist among us and are still looking for an opportunity. Sometimes it is the responsibilities in life and sometimes it is the physical and intellectual disabilities that make learning a far-fetched dream for many. However, with technology being an integral part of the field of education today, there are plenty of options for you to continue learning without actually having to wait until you are free of all your responsibilities.
Today, there are many apps – learning apps in general as well as learning apps for adults that help you to learn the subjects of your interest at your own pace, anytime and anywhere. Even if it is just about expanding your knowledge, upgrading your skills or earning an actual degree, it is all possible with the help of learning apps.
Whatever the purpose – be it your love for learning or upgrading your skills for the sake of your job, if you want to learn a new language, Duolingo is your go-to app. The app comes in a gamified format with tons of exercises and lessons that help you develop your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in the language of your choice.

There are plenty of learning apps that are already available in the market and those that are awaiting release. But it is a fact that the majority of these learning apps are meant for young students and not specifically adults. Yes, some of these apps, like the ones listed above, are suitable for adults as well. But there is still a need for more learning apps meant exclusively for adults as well, that would help them learn a specific concept or a specific skill of their choice instead of making compromises.
If there is an app with great content capable enough to pique the interest of adults, we would not hesitate to purchase it. Obviously, many of us adults spend a lot on gaming apps. So why not on educational apps, which give us an opportunity to learn something new or enhance our skills? It is time education providers and educational app makers give it serious thought because times have changed and adults love to learn too.
