A couple weeks ago I researched the internet for websites that offer online courses in various things. Especially art and languages. I somehow came across FutureLearn and I signed up for it since they offer free online courses in various things. Tho they don’t really offer courses in a lot of art or languages they still seem to have interesting stuff and I signed up for a few classes that start January and February next year so I don’t know just yet how all that goes but I’m excited to learn something. Let’s see how that goes. So far I signed up for something about Animation, something with Nutrition, something about art crime, a Dutch class and an English course.
In August I also found learnspanish.com which is a free and paid website to learn Spanish. Since Spanish is a language I really want to learn I actually paid for the course and I’m currently on Unit 2 of the official and full course work. Unit 1 and 2 are basically just to improve pronunciation skills so I haven’t actually learned any Spanish just yet but I hope by Unit 3 I will start to actually be able to speak a few sentences. You can learn there for free too but not all lessons are available.
Now I just need to find something like that for improving my Illustration skills and I’d be all set. Sadly I haven’t found anything yet so I guess I keep on using youtube. I know you can learn from youtube and all but some page who actually gives you a guide and little tasks would be cool just to get the hang of it. And maybe where you can send in your stuff and they tell you things to improve on and all that but who knows. Maybe I find something like that.
Anyway, hope I actually manage to get myself to learn. I’m always procrastinating and I’m always distracted so who knows. I’m someone who loves to learn new things but I’m also someone who is impatient to learn when it takes years till you learned what you wanted to learn haha. I’m horrible when it comes to that.
If anyone knows any other pages that offer similar stuff to what I just talked about please let me know. 🙂
