Ten hobbies you can do at home
If you are spending more time at home - we have put together some hobbies which you can do from home (as well as keeping up the English practise of course).
1. Baking - bake a cake, bake some bread, cook something new. This is great - because you get to eat it at the end too.
2. Reading - here are some of our recommendations if you are currently studying English.
The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway
High Fidelity – Nick Hornby
Fantastic Mr Fox – Roald Dahl
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time – Mark Haddon
Lord of the Flies – William Golding
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone- J.K. Rowling
3. Cross-stitch - click here for some great kits you can order online.
4. Painting or Drawing.
5. Knitting - maybe start with something simpler like a scarf. There are lots of knot kits you can buy online as well as online tutorials.

6. Photography and photo editing - do something with all those photos in your camera roll.
There are so many apps you can get for free, these include - Colorstory, Camera+, Lightroom, and VSCO.
7. Learn a new skill - there are so many tutorials on places like YouTube so now is the time to try something new. Here are some ideas - learn how to dance, learn how to make a bed like in a hotel room, learn how to play the piano, how to juggle, how to do calligraphy, and even how to take better photos to help with number six on our list.
8. Clear out your wardrobe - Organise your clothes, cupboards, etc - ok so not really a hobby but something you probably need to do. And if you haven't already watched it check out Marie Kondo for her top tips on organising.
9. Listen to podcasts - again not a hobby but enjoyable and can help with learning English.
10. Exercise - there are loads of free exercise routines online so if you're not going to the gym bring the workout to you.
