Studying languages

I hope this community is yet alive.
I am from Russia and I'm interested in studying languages.
Now I study three foreign languages: English, German and French.
It's a special way of studying languages by V.A.Kourinsky. Here we can find english version of the book by Mr. Kourinsky called 'Autodidactics': http://www.postpsychology.org/literature/ .
The main idea of this method is simultaneous (if I use correct this word) learning three languages.
The author says, his ideas and advices could use not only in sphere languages, but in other different fields of science.
Is this community yet interested in the problems own curriculum and self-education?
Can I find here help and advice?

This Week in Your Education

How goes it fellow autodidacts? Read anything interesting? Learn a verb system? Finally figure out calculurs, or just got out the telescope and stared at the stars?

This week, I turned in the final draft of my thesis, and started research sustainable agriculture. I signed up to go work on a organic farm once a week in exchange for vegetables, so that I could learn more about how corps are grown. I also finally ordered Henle's Latin 1, so next week, or the week after that I'll start with the Latin again.

How are you guys doing?

Hi! I want to welcome all our new members. Please feel free to post about your path to self education. From now on, I'll be posting a "What I did this Week" thread on Fridays so that everyone can talk about their progress. Tomorrow, I'll also be posting a "find a subject/book/theme buddy" thread, in case you want to find someone to read the same book, or talk about a specific periods in history, or brush up on your algebra with.

If you have any resources you think should be added to our userinfo list, please feel free to leave a comment here, so I can go check them out. Also, if you have any suggestions or questions, please let me know! And once again, Welcome!

Hey. I'm quite interested in this comm. I've never seen anything like it and it's rather hard to find resources for self education. Hope I'm not being to bold by joining.

First Update

I've decided that I'll be updating you on my progress every Friday. This week got off with a slow start, since I spent a bit of it creating the community and my curriculum. So far the only progress I've shown for my goals list is reading the first book of the Iliad.

Hi, I'm kiio and this is Your Own University. I'm setting this up as part of mission101. Quite a few of my mission101 goals are educational. So I've decided to set up this community for anyone with education goals, anyone working on self-education, or do-it-yourself college.
