Should I learn how to code?

I don't really have any marketable skills. I've been an ESL teacher in Asia for most of my adult life, but now I'm unemployed and living with my parents. I'm learning Russian on DuoLingo, but that won't make me any money. It will help just me connect with girls when I one day go to Eastern Europe.

I feel like I should learn something that will make me money. I don't want to go to school though. If school was effective for making money then I'd be a millionaire by now because I've invested a lot of time in school, and I've gotten good grades. I took a programming class in college once and hated it because it was hard and boring.

Is there a different skill I could learn that would make me money? I'd prefer a job in which I could work remotely. If coding is the best thing I could learn, is there a phone app like DuoLingo for learning to code?

I don’t know if I have that useful of advice but I took a coding class freshmen year in college and didn’t like it either, but now that I’m in my career , I have a better appreciate for it and see it as something I can learn. It might be good to do a bit of schooling if it means you can improve your network, even if you really don’t want to.

I think you should work on a coding language (check on other forums for advice on which one ) and try to spend a little time each day coming up with your own projects once you get some of the basics down. If you find you’re pretty uninterested after a while, then you’ll get a better sense of how much you think coding will be in the cards for you during your future.

What’s your career in? It sounds like you have a career unrelated to coding, but you might want to learn it for fun.

My parents are willing to pay for me to go to grad school, but I don’t want to waste their money. I think it’s insane to keep pumping money and time into something that shows no signs of paying off.

@tenslein I’m finance , but I use a little bit of coding in my day to day job. Grad school I don’t think will be useful unless you have some work experience (and some companies will reimburse you for it)

Posted by CourseofEmpireInteresting, so it does seem that restricting immigration actually benefits a country: [numbersusa.com]
