Never Too Old to Learn New Tricks

Retirees in China are attending “schools for the aged” in order to keep their minds sharp and active after leaving the workforce. However, there are very limited spaces and the number of retirees is growing much faster than the amount of classes and spots offered, making it harder and harder for Chinese seniors to continue learning and staying fresh. Chu Shijun, the vice president of the Beijing Haidian University for Seniors, believes that the demand for senior schools will spur the development of more centers to provide engaging classes for seniors to attend.
