Memrise.com - Learning made joyful

Memrise.com is a great place to go to learn languages and pretty much anything else. It has over 300,000 courses, its free and it can be used on any platform. Take it with you on the train or as you stand in a queue somewhere and get learning. It follows scientific learning processes and is great. The main one I have used in the past is the Learn Chinese HSK levels and although the site is great I cant say that my Chinese is! Click the title above or have a look @ https://www.memrise.com/ (FREE).

Fight Mediocrity - Big ideas for a better life

This is a great place to get short 'Bite-sized' videos that are summaries of much longer books. They may save you reading the book or give you a taster for what they contain. either way they cover a wealth of information and ideas in a clear and easy to follow way. Highly recommended for students of all subjects and also professionals as a re-cap of some of the important things that they may have forgotten over the years and a quick update on new thinking.

The website is still a work in progress but it gives you access to the latest video and other links. The alternative is to go to YouTube and search for Fight Mediocrity and the videos are free so have a look.

S-cool - The revision website

This is a great place for GCSE and A level revision but its not only for those courses, I have recommended this site to many learners around the world who are covering the subjects on this site but may not be doing GCSE or A level courses.

It a great resource for school students around the world and also students who are on foundation degree courses and even first year degree courses as it covers all the main principles in a simple and effective format:

  • Revise it;

  • Test it;

  • Remember it.

And you don't have to be at school either, this site has been a great resource for parents wanting to get to know the subjects their children are covering and also people at work who want to learn or update their knowledge in a subject area.

Bartlebys.com - Great Books Online.

This website has a lot of books and for learning about English written style and rules I recommend and old classic they have 'The Elements of Style' by William Strunk, Jr. It was written in 1918 and most of what he says is still relevant today. Whether you are writing an essay, thesis, article or book this is a good source of writing style information .

The link leads directly to the 'The Elements of Style' contents page @ www.bartleby.com/141/ (FREE)

This is a site with over 7000 classes produced by their community where you can learn creative skills in just 15 minutes a day with bite-sized lessons you can fit in anywhere. There is a monthly subscription fee but you can take their classes at your own pace wherever you want. (Subscription fee).

Project Gutenberg - Free Ebooks

While we are on the subject of books, this website is made up of previously published classics that have been digitised and proofread by thousands of volunteers. The site  has over 50,000 FREE e-books which are all downloadable in various formats with no registration or membership needed. The e-books range from Confucian classics and the Art of War to the original Alice in wonderland.
