As my name implies, I am a sucker for bargains, discounts, awesome steals and most importantly… free stuff.
When it comes to giveaways, I am almost always first in line for the reposts, RTs, Comments…
The good thing is, it is not always about clothes, shoes, makeup or fashion in general.
I like other things too…
Today’s focus will be on my favourite apps/websites for learning and self-improvement. No, I’m not really a bookworm. Really. Okay, maybe a little. Okay, okay. I love to read and learn new things and I am probably one of those who took down notes during excursions *insert appropriate tweet*
I cannot even begin to explain how awesome this virtual learning world is. It feels like having all the universities in the world at your fingertips. Omg. I can’t be judged for wanting to study The Analytics of Human Engineering while dabbling in Design Thinking and jumping into classes on Negotiation. There is no one to call me an “alaini nkan se”
I can be an art student, a science student, a commercial student and not be judged.
The way Coursera works is simple, sign up for a class (Depending on the structure of the class, it could be at your own pace or a time-bound class), take the video classes, answer your quizzes, do your coursework and you’re entitled to a Statement of Accomplishment upon the successful completion of the coursework.
Or, you can register for Specializations (this one requires money o… So, I have budgeted for my specialisation for the month of April – Reason being that the courses are actually important to my career path).
So, sign up for a Coursera course today at www.coursera.org and download the app on your device!
Big ups to MallamSawyerr for showing me the light.
btw, Sir calls it “kos-rah” and I call it “koh-seh-rah”
I’m right. I know I’m right. Right?
Tu parles Français? Do you want to parle Français? Or, Italian? Or, German?
Ich habe a solution for you.
Duolingo is a language learning website with apps for iOS and Android users. Duolingo is easy to use. It takes a question based form, so there are no actual classes. It just asks questions. Now, the words are underlined and you can tap and view the meanings before answering a question.
A huge plus for me are the random pronunciation tests. Make sure you are in a quiet area when you take a pronunciation test or the kpokom sound of failure will be too loud.
So, get on Duolingo (www.duolingo.com) and expand your horizon today.
Not every time, Voulez-vous coucher avec moi… Learn something new.

Have a peaceful weekend
