Have you ever wanted to learn something new and didn't know where you could start? Want to start a hobby but need some help? Don't want to pay for lessons or workshops?

The Internet is a wonderful source of free information. There are websites for everything. Some are paid, but there are still some that offer free knowledge.

Below is a list of a few websites that are full of resources and information about certain hobbies or skills or that teach you how to do something.

Learning a new language:

If you're trying to learn a new language or develop one that you have basic knowledge about, there are a few ways in which you can do it. You can use websites that provide linguistic lessons (grammar and vocabulary exercises) or you can try to read a book or articles in that language or even watch videos, if you have basic knowledge that will allow you to follow the reading or what is being said in the video.

Duolingo is a great website, both for beginners and more advanced learners of a language. The exercises are very interactive and you are encouraged to work a little bit every day - you get email reminders to do your daily exercises. But you can do it at your own pace.

Learning a skill:
PhotographyLife is all about photography and it has a page with several photography tips for all levels of knowledge on the subject. It really is a very comprehensive list of resources. You can read about the basic rules and tips in photography and it's quite helpful. You can learn a lot on this website.

ArtistWorks is a website where you can learn various instruments by watching video lessons. The courses are mostly paid, but they do offer free lessons to learn to play acoustic guitar over here. The lessons are great and they go really slow to make sure you understand all the different aspects of the guitar and how to play it. You can always skip some videos if you're not an absolute beginner, but you do have to pass a small quiz in order to get on to the next level of videos.


Instructables has tutorials on various things. If you want to try a DIY project but are not sure how to go about it, instructables will most likely have a tutorial on it! From food to arts and crafts and even general life hacks, there's a little bit of everything in there.

HackMyStudy offers various tips and guides on how to study better, including tips on time management and how to beat procrastination, as well as guides on how to summarize or memorize your textbook or notes more effectively. A lot of people struggle with studying at some point and this just might be the help that you need.
