a man workingLife is a journey full of lessons, and it’s just a bigger classroom with no walls. This could be a saying you’ve heard of from somewhere and thought of them as cliché. Still, when you think about it, are they truly wrong? Life is indeed full of things to learn, whether it be from your bosses, colleagues, loved ones, or even from complete strangers.

As The American Academy and other experts enumerate, here are some life skills and high school courses that could help prepare you for living in today’s society.

Digital Literacy

Being digitally literate means you know how to use a computer or a phone, specifically the programs that run on these devices. It’s important to learn how to make a Word document, a spreadsheet, or a PowerPoint presentation because your next employment might require you to do these regularly.

U.S. Government

Learning all about the government is essential, as it makes things easier for you. You’ll understand better how this system of senators, congressmen, and elections work. You could then give more informed opinions on current events and can even spread the discussion to people who need to get these explained to them.

World Geography

For those who intend to travel frequently, knowledge of world geography is a must-have skill. Learning where places are and what their customs are could prepare you (and the people you’re traveling with) in making sure you’re not offending anybody. This also helps you adjust quickly with the locals and make your tour guide’s job easier since you already know some local info.

Financial Math

This involves applying math to real-life situations, such as calculating your taxes and budgeting your expenses. This is an indispensable skill if you plan on living independently or raising a family of your own.

Business Communication

This is a life skill that teaches you how to write, speak, and act in the workplace. This is important because good behavior is expected among employees. There will be times when you have to talk to your boss, and this skill can help you impress them with proper writing or speaking.

Everybody benefits from learning all throughout their lives. The skills above are only some of the things that would allow you to be a capable member of society.
