Sometimes kids are affected by something and start learning it, as

learning tennis after seeing anime "Tennis no oujisama".
Many kids may start learning soccer seeing world cup game (^^)/

Now there are so many lessons other than these lessons like "Dance", "Computer", "Painting", "Cooking Class", "Karate", "Boxing", "Rugby" etc...
