I am trying to learn things that will make me educated in anything that may make my life better and more effective.
The the search of more education online I came across a site where is can learn for free and at my own pace. It is called Alison and so far I am loving the site it is easy and I can see that I am getting smarter at the topics I am learning.
The First think I started was a typing course and Touch typing training.
I was very interactive and I enjoyed seeing my self learn and pass the course faster then expected. My ability to type got much better and I find it much easier to type long story’s.
I am a creative person and typing more effectively is a way to help me with my writing.
I have desided to write down what I am learning , so I can see the process from the each thing I learn and the thoughts am am having about it. So let begin.
I am now starting English Writing skills, and and looking forward to learning new things and being a better writer is very important to me.
