It’s best practice to learn new skills and constantly develop yourself. Making personal goals that might have nothing to do with a career is a good thing to do. These personal goals could be learning a new language, starting a yoga class or learning how to cook. To complete these goals, you need the right tools in place. The tools can be a large variety of different things, from books to movies to apps. The trend for consuming information is to download an app to fulfill those needs. Luckily, there are many apps geared toward teaching new skills.

 

Khan Academy is great for brushing up on previously learned knowledge. The app mainly focuses on STEM courses, but there is a wide range of topics covered. To help people learn, users can choose a topic to explore and this will include access to videos, courses and exercises. All of these components help users learn new skills and retain the knowledge.

 

Duolingo will help specifically with language learning. The immensely popular app is used for language learners of all levels. The app has a large library of lessons for each language that they offer and use simulated conversations as exercises. Users can connect with others and they can help each other learn. In just a few minutes a day, users can learn new language skills or enhance what they already have.

 

Udacity is a great app for learning coding and other technologies. The app covers basics such as HTML and delves into more difficult topics like artificial intelligence and virtual reality. The app also gives certificates to those who successfully complete a course.

The menu is comprised of food primarily created in the sub-alpine Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. Because of this, it stands out among a packed crowd in Boulder’s ever-expanding dining scene.
