Ways to Keep From Being Bored

Are you bored? Stuck at home? Looking for something to do? Try some of these ideas!

Are you stuck at home? Are you bored? Have you watched everything on Netflix? Here are some ideas to keep your brain active!


  1. Read blogs and magazines. Magazines are typically written at a lower language level, which means that it will be easier for ESL learners to understand. People magazine from the U.S. has shorter and easier-to-read articles. You can also try Hello Magazine from the U.K.
