Cheery Friday greetings from Learning How to Learn! Jul 3, 2015

Cheery Friday Greetings to our Learning How to Learners!

Hopefully your past week has gone beautifully, and you’ll have a little time this weekend to learn. Learning something new helps keep your mind in great shape!

Here is an inspiring article by our friend Benny Lewis about how language learning can help with all sorts of learning. Benny’s bonus interview on learning a new language is one of the most popular bonus videos in Learning How to Learn. You might be surprised to discover that language learning improves your ability to learn in math and science!

Don’t forget–A Mind for Numbers, the recommended book to help you solidify the main ideas in the course, is available not only in English, but also in Korean and Spanish. Chinese (simplified and complex), German, Polish, Japanese, Turkish, Russian, and Portuguese translations are all coming soon.

And if you’d like to help translate Learning How to Learn into your native language, or a language you’re comfortable with, please just go here to get started. You can learn even more about learning as you think through a video translation. We’re looking for a volunteer female from Brazil who might be willing to produce audio tapes that we could use to dub Barb’s voice on the videos. Please contact Barb at oakley@oakland.edu if you might be able to do this.

In the meantime, as always, happy learning!

Barb, Terry, and the entire Learning How to Learn team
