In these quarantine days, many businesses have slowed down and we find ourselves with some more free time. There are those who read more, those who dedicate themselves to cooking and others still to do-it-yourself projects. Some take part in online courses on technology, foreign languages, communication or marketing. There are many creative ideas that can be put into practice in order to learn something new, stay up to date and make this time at home productive.
There are a myriad of constructive ideas for quarantine. The important thing is to carry them forward with passion and interest, so that this period can be of value to you, and lead to benefits for the future.

There are those who are taking advantage of this to obtain the TOEFL or GRE from the comfort of their home. Find out how from the link below!
