Learning at home is the most natural and effective way for you to gain knowledge. This enlightening process begins at birth. And in the first five years of your life the highest amount of learning takes place.
Where? In your own home. In fact, distance learning at home in those first few years sets the course for the rest of a child’s life. “8’s too late” is a phrase that has now become commonplace amongst educational researchers.
It’s only after those early years that the “formal” institutions take over the instruction of your mainly “academic” subjects. Schools have no doubt successfully offered an equal opportunity to all to gain a basic education. But this rigid and impersonal system has its drawbacks and is not always the best way to continue your lifelong learning.
Whilst home learning courses can even be used to supplement this fundamental schooling they excel as the most effective method of further education.
“OK”, I hear you say. “Learning the basics of life from Mum at home is one thing, but seriously studying a subject at a higher level is entirely another. Can home learning courses do this effectively? Surely a college or university are better placed to fulfil this role.”
