Any self-learners here?

Would love to start some kind of online discussion or group to bounce ideas and interesting study tactics off of!

I’m so down! Love this idea! I love self learning. I’m going to college for psychology but there are so many things I want to learn and not enough money/time for college for all of it. There’s a website called skill share where you take “classes” for all kinds of stuff! There’s a monthly fee type of thing but it’s like 20 bucks I think. Not bad.

Awesome! Yes! I'll see if I can manage to get a group discussion up eventually over time, I figure it'll take a bit to be constantly flowing with ideas or discussions, but I've been craving the experience of college study groups  -- minus the college.

Hi I love self-learning!


I've been learning ASL, I think I'm at the point where I can make small conversation. I'm in a Marco Polo group for beginner learners and its been really helpful. A bit hard to find the time now though between work and school.

I've been doing a lot of self teaching. Honestly, if you're into something academic that needs a lot of books or articles, consider getting a ReMarkable or some other epaper tablet. You can download PDFs from various swashbucklin' pirate websites (e.g. LibGen or Scihub), read them, and take notes on the tablet. The only downside is that epaper tablets are expensive, but in the end you actually save hundreds, possibly thousands of dollars on books.

yessss this is so me, I can never be casually into anything lol. I taught myself French and got really into the nitty gritty of linguistics and phonology just for fun, taught myself how to play ukulele and guitar and (mostly) piano, and lately I've been so super into gardening that I went from being completely clueless about it like two months ago to now being known as the plant guy to all my friends and family lol. I'm taking a break from languages but I'm working on Japanese next and I plan to continue learning the rest of my life.
