Would love to start some kind of online discussion or group to bounce ideas and interesting study tactics off of!
Any self-learners here?
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.

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.

i'm learning german but tbh, very much looking forward to taking actual courses as i find it hard to motivate myself and practice regularly. probably because i'm not that into it. i like the language and all that, but i'm mainly learning it because i have a german boyfriend and we would like to build our future in germany

I would say self learning is my whole life, i basically self-learned my entire degree, tho it wasn’t easy by any means. I also studied three languages on my own, two of them are honestly still a work in progress, but yeah I have a long history with self learning, especially when i was in high school, i used to self study stuff related to 3d modeling and game development. And right now i’m trying to get into quantum computing

I am going back to college this semester. I am really wanting to learn spanish. I use a lot of apps like Duolingo but recently I have started joining fb groups and messaging people there back and forth. I need more people to be consistent but it is pretty cool.

It can be difficult to stay motivated when learning on your own, and it's easy to get discouraged if you don't see progress quickly. It's important to set goals and give yourself regular rewards to keep yourself on track. It can be hard to know which ones are worth reading. However, if you're looking for good business articles guide.

Definitely me. I've taught myself a bunch of different things and I think it's safe to say I've learned a lot more through my autodidactism than from school (I'm currently in the 11th grade in case you were wondering). I think it also helps that I'm hyperlexic.
