I really enjoy free online courses and this time I have found a course that might be considered attractive to many since it is about Aesop. I have read and heard many of Aesop’s fables as a child. However, I hadn’t researched about the author. Do you remember reading his fables? Perhaps some of the most famous are The Crow and the Fox and The Lion and the Mouse.
This free online course teaches about him and it aims to remind us of the lessons in the fables and to reflect on how we can apply them on our everyday life. What is more, you can work on your vocabulary and reading skills.
It is free (no regisration fees are applied), self-paced (you can start and continue anytime you want) and it has quizzes you can retake if your answers were wrong. You will find nice artwork, too. Moreover, you can get certified. Here is part of the course description:
To qualify for your official ALISON Diploma, Certificate or PDF you must study and complete all modules and score 80% or more in each of the course assessments. A link to your Diploma certificate will then appear under the My Certificates heading of your My Account page.
On completion of this course you will have read 60 Aesop’s fables and you will be able to identify and, demonstrate an understanding of, the moral or lesson that applies to a selection of those fables.
