Lifelong learning is a never-ending journey to find new dimensions. It involves more than training in school. Lifelong learning is all training activities of all life which improve skills, abilities, experiments, ways of thinking and capacities. Lifelong learning can help people to be informed about opportunities. People who are lifelong learners can identify and understand the skills and abilities and they can try to improve them. Also, lifelong learners have different life perspectives. They can join other people’s experiences and can be happy with other’s happiness. They accept life, they acquire knowledge they enjoy learning new things. They try to add something new to their life. And I think the most important thing is they try to do something beneficial for their life and humanity. They are not selfish people. Also, they use critical and creative thinking because the modern world, developing education system and business world need it. They do not accept every information which are provided to them. They share their own ideas and listen to others. Then, they decide to which is more useful.
