Quarantine and learn! Best Sites For Free Online Education

Best Sites For Free Online Education

I have always wanted to learn Spanish from the internet but it’s like the universe never wanted me to.

I was so passionate, so interested and I even thought maybe going to Spain would help me learn the language. But, where is the money sis?

So I slowly used my apps and even used simple words such as Mucho Gusto, Gracias and Hola in my conversations! 2020 began and I made a vow that the year would not end without me learning the language.

2 months  into the year, COVID-19 happened and the Stay Home policy was heightened. This meant that finally I could learn whatever I wanted and I got to stay home for 24 hours. It was like I finally found freedom and I was unleashed! 

Remember when you once wished that the world would halt for a minute so that you can get time to breathe? Well, I think that the wish has finally come true. With the stay and work from home measures, one must be having a few hours to spare. Those hours should be dedicated to at least learning a new skill, language, recipe among many other things. It’s a period to detox and recharge your energies.

There are a lot of sites offering free books, courses, skills, new recipes and foreign languages. I will share some of my top sites and apps that I have considered and even checked out to assist me in my new quest to obtain new knowledge.

New language
New language

Learning a new language has proven to be an uphill task especially if it’s not spoken in your current environment. However, spending 4-5 hours per week learning it, really helps in the long run. 

Tip- When sleeping you could leave an audio or Youtube running a 2 or 3 hour audio of the language you’re aiming to master. Researchers recognized that sounds, words, and even tone-odor combinations can be encoded during sleep since a  sleeping brain can encode new information and store it for long term. Here are some of the best vlogs and sites to learn new languages:

  1. Duolingo
  2. Youtube – The easiest and best actually
  3. Youtube- Spanish with Paul
  4. Babbel
  5. Memrise
  6. Lingodeer 
  7. Free Books

These 3 sites contain almost all books that you may need to download or view directly from the app

  1. Anybooks app
  2. Project Gutenberg
  3. Z-lib

I hope you’ll discover something new and work towards perfecting it! Stay home & Stay safe.
