But the program isn’t just for the first-time learners.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider taking a free, self-paced life skills course.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn about the history and evolution of written communication and its impact on the human condition.
The content of the course will be designed for the young learner to read the material aloud and understand it from the young person’s point of view.
They will learn about:How and why writing worksHow and when to put words on paperHow to use a penHow to write in a journalHow to think in a languageHow to work collaborativelyHow to take notesHow to study a bookWhat you need to know about the subject, how to write and read it, and why it mattersWhen you enroll, you’ll be asked to pay $59 for a one-week, self‑paced course.
The course costs $29.95 per student per week.
Students who enroll in the course are expected to have completed at least two years of high school and three years of college, as well as complete a minimum of 40 hours of coursework each semester.
If you enroll in a self-taught program, the minimum required work is 40 hours per semester.
The self-study is done by taking a set of five practice exams to determine your level of competence.
You will learn to:Think about and write down your thoughtsHow to express yourself creativelyHow to deal with stressHow to choose the right materialsHow to read aloudWhat you should know about writing and reading, how it works, and how to think creativelyIn addition to being a self‐study, you will be also able to use the curriculum to:Practice reading aloud, writing a paper, writing your essay, and listening to audio lessons.
