Interesting Skills that You Might Want to Teach Yourself* | Tips & Tricks

Do you feel like everyone has a skill or a talent expect you? A lot of people feel like that, so why not teach yourself a new skill? Here are some of the best options for you to consider.

Speaking a Foreign Language
This is one of those things that people always say they'll do, but then never get round to it. Learning a language not only provides you with an enviable skill; it also can be a lot of fun. It gives you an insight into another country and their culture. And you can teach yourself a language with the right help. You can get books and recordings that help. And the app Duolingo is becoming increasingly popular for people looking to learn a new language.

Playing an Interesting Musical Instrument
Playing a musical instrument is one of the biggest challenges you can give yourself. So, if you want to do something that’s time-consuming and fun, you should definitely think about learning to play an instrument. There are all kinds of options, so you should do your research and find out which instrument will suit you best. For the people who want something loud and boisterous, there are the drums. And if you want something a little more subtle and delicate, a harp or violin might be appropriate.

Learning Card Tricks
If you ever need to impress someone, being able to marvel them with some cool card tricks is the best way to do it. We’re all impressed when we see a card trick. Even though we know that it’s all about trickery and sleight of hand, we still can’t help but be surprised by the skill involved. And, believe me, there is a lot of skill involved in pulling off an intricate card trick. It’s not the kind of thing you can do without putting in the practice. You can buy forcing decks online, as well as other things that will help you perform your own tricks.

Skilled Photography
You might think that now everybody takes photos on their phones and tablets that there’s no need for skilled photographers. But that’s not true. You only have to browse through the photos on Instagram to discover that most people have no idea what they’re doing. This means that people who take photos professionally, in a skilled way are still very much in demand. So, why not teach yourself how to do it the proper way. You could even buy yourself an old 35mm film camera and take photos that way.

Self-Defence Moves
If you feel vulnerable when you go out alone, you should think about learning some good self-defense skills. You can learn these a couple of ways. Firstly, you could get a guidebook or an instructional DVD to teach yourself the skills at home. Or you could attend a martial arts class and learn how to take on anyone, no matter what situation you find yourself in. If you manage to succeed, you’ll never have to feel vulnerable or unsafe when you’re walking the streets at night ever again.
