Exploring English – Free MOOC

Futurelearn is offering a free MOOC (massive open online course)  from British Council (“UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities”) for people interested in learning more about the  British culture and improving their English language skills. The date hasn’t been announced yet, but I will inform you through my blog or you can register in Futurelearn and register you interest so they can  send you an email when the course opens.

This course is suggested for people with an intermediate or higher level of English. You will be able to watch videos and download them. Moreover, you will find quizzes and discussions to evaluate your understanding. The course also involves writing about your feelings and experiences about each week’s topic. However, it’s up to you to participate actively or to take the course and just watch and read other people’s comments.

The course lasts 6 weeks and it takes about 2 hours per week to cover each week’s tasks. You can get a cerftificate from Futuelearn at the end of the course or buy a Statement of Participation.

Don’t miss the chance to learn more!

Aesop’s fables free online course at ALISON

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:

CERTIFICATION

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.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

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.
