The back-to-school season is here, but that doesn’t mean all the learning should be left to the kids. Why not turn your Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens residence into a classroom? Sign up for world-class courses online, and become a better you — from the comfort of your luxury living room, kitchen, or terrace.
Join the Ivy League
Nowadays, you can proudly wear the badge of Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, or Princeton — without having to physically attend any of these Ivy League universities. Class Central invites you to select from nearly 450 classes offered by the country’s top schools. Take on ancient philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania; delve into the art of structural engineering at Princeton; or master digital photography at Harvard. Some courses require as little as a couple of hours a week, and many are self-paced, so they can fit easily into your schedule. The next time you’re tempted to start on a new Netflix series, log into Class Central instead, and embark on an adventure in Roman architecture or contemporary American poetry. One more thing: These online courses are absolutely free.
Master a New Language
It’s one of those things that’s always on our to-do list — though we never quite get around to doing it. But now that we’re all spending more time at home, there are no more excuses. This is the perfect time to knuckle down and master a new language. Italki boasts a roster of more than 10,000 online teachers who will get you up to speed on anything from French to Arabic to Mandarin Chinese. Choose from the vast pool of tutors by watching their introductory videos and comparing fees and ratings, then enroll for one-on-one lessons. Because they’re done remotely, your classroom can be wherever you like — including the leafy outdoor setting of the Ambassador Gardens. Alternatively, you can sign up to Rosetta Stone. This well-known app will help you fine-tune your accent and thrive in real-world conversations. The next time you travel overseas, you’ll be ready.
Learn Skills for the Home
Learning doesn’t have to be purely academic. Taking some domestic courses can help you make the most of your Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens residence. On Masterclass, heed the expert advice of Alice Waters on how to whip up nutritious dishes in your luxury kitchen using seasonal produce. Self-proclaimed “Gangster Gardener” Ron Finley, meanwhile, shows you how to make perfect planters for your private terrace. And if you want to bring the gift of music into your home, TakeLessons introduces you to highly qualified instructors who’ll have you strumming ukes and tooting flutes in no time.
