    Default Let the NT teach her/himself.

    One of my favorite things to do is pick up new skills. What are your favorite tools, toys, dvds, websites, books, methods, etc that you've used to learn new things?



    To start -

    Michel Thomas French instructional cds - They teach the language by illustrating its equivalence to English. It's the first language instruction method I've used that has created a natural transition without the feel of being a 3 year old with an alphabet chart and flash cards.



    I look forward to using your tools.

    Yeah, I've used that to get a bunch of material for AI stuff. It's an awesome site.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    My favorite thing I ever learned was how to drive a manual transmission

    So my usual method is to research whatever it is endlessly, then wing it. I guess I did the same thing with cooking, art, and gardening. I don't have any particular resources, just bits and pieces from everywhere.

    For learning other languages I'm a big fan of online dictionaries with sound-bites. This probably isn't the best one, but it's pretty convenient: Free Translation Online

    My favorite tool of learning is lying on my bed, looking at the ceiling and introspecting.

    I don't know -- most everything I've learned how to do on my own included following directions a couple times, figuring out how it worked, and then winging it all times after that. So, I don't really have any good resources, I guess, except Stitch and Bitch, a book that gives knitting/crochet directions in plain language. The first half of the first book is very good reference for a lot of techniques.
