¢Give it a go.

¢Learning to move, is moving to learn: if we move from A to Z, we learn along the way.

¢Adaptation is but an extension of good practice: don’t be afraid to change how you do things.

¢It’s never, ever too late to learn: keep learning going, ideally learn together and above all have fun.
