In this day and age, internet access opens up a world of opportunities for learning new things and educating oneself at no cost! However, because of the vast wealth of knowledge available, it can be difficult to find what is worth your time and what is not.
Here are some resources that I’ve found to be helpful and interesting in my self-education:
Learn a new language with Livemocha! I’ve been using this service for nearly two years now and it’s great!
Free Audio Books (If you aren’t able to use the popular audio book apps, these are sites that enable you to stream or download.)
Remember – you don’t need a practical reason to spend time learning. Do it for the intrinsic motivation of fun and fascination!
