So I had an idea, creat a thread where everyone can put all the threads that help them learn about different subjects. Instead of hunting all over , you can just drop in here and find some resources to help you in your interests.

I figured i would start off with my contribution, learning calculus links.

Calculus Online Book

Class notes from Calc I

Class notes for Calc II

So using those sites should help you get a good grasp on Calculus, if you are so inclined.

So this thread will depend on people's contributions, so if you know some good link to help learn about something, then please add.

Hope this picks up and we all get to learn a little something haha!!

Here are some for learning to play Guitar:

BTW this is actually a great idea. Perhaps the Owners/Mods can take all the acquired information and put it in a nice little database.

For those like me wanting to learn web programming and the like:

Codecademy - Java / Javascript / HTML5 / jQuery
Learn jQuery in 30 days - jQuery by tutsplus
Free Videos Lectures - Some Stafford university courses and other known universities.
Best of all, it's all free!

Edit: I'm at work and can't remember all the links I have about things that are free but very helpful to learn! For the most part is all about computers / programming if you are interested!

By the way OP, great idea! Way to go!!!

Does anyone have any good sites for learning a new language?

I currently know two languages (English and French) and I'm interested in learning Spanish.. maybe even pick up an Asian language like Japanese, Mandarin or Cantonese...heck I'd also be interested in learning Sign language. Any direction/insights are appreciated.

I recommend browsing iTunes U. Lots of Universities post their class content, so you can find anything from Microbiology to Art History. Combine resources, and get an education for free! When I'm taking a class, I often look for a similar class on iTunes U and download the lectures and listen to them during my long drive in the car. Sure, even if it is the same class, like Organic Chem, the iTunes U lecture is different than the one my Professor will give. But, I like having a well-rounded look at the subject.

Ok so here are some links for learning languages as requested

Learn any language

free online language lessons

BBC learn languages

Language and culture

Learnig language advisor

Those are all for multiple languages! I figured it was better than a link for each language.
Hope that helps!

IMO the best way to learn a new language without taken classes or staying in that country, is by listening.
What i mean is to get some tapes or cd's with, for example english-spanish lessons.
Those helped me a lot learning a new language.
There are some places on the net where you can download them for free.

I must say i tried, the written lessons but that didn't helped me a lot.

Thanks for the links Neopan100 and KingAtlas

Have either of you used the link(s) provided or are they the result of a search? I ask only because I have tried some other sites in the past and was been disappointed, if you had an opinion on them from experience, it would be great to hear. Again thanks for the link(s).

Thanks Intergalactic fire... I've looked into that as well but I find I learn best with both a visual and audio component

Those are Links I have been meaning to use myself, but haven't found the time yet, working on math and physics lately.

There are some with video, some are written and the language and culture one helps to figure out how the different cultures syntax, by comparison to english syntax.
