Coursera is an online learning platform that offers courses, specialisations and degrees by working with universities and other organisations to teach students through video lectures, peer-reviewed assignments and community discussion forums. When you complete a course, you receive a sharable electronic Course Certificate to show your achievement.

 

The language courses offered with Coursera range from learning basic Chinese to advanced Arabic, allowing you to filter by language level, job title and course type. Once you have selected your preferences, you will be shown a list of different courses from various providers, displaying course length and the average verified user rating out of five. You can also ‘View Syllabus’ to get a better sense of what the course includes.

 

One of the things that I liked in particular when choosing a course with Coursera was the week-by-week breakdown of precisely what you would be learning by embarking on the programme. Not only does it tell you exactly how many hours you will have to do each week, it lets you see what the videos will be about, how long the quizzes are and how long each will take. This helps you to decide exactly what course you would like to partake in and allow you to manage your time around the lessons.

 

Coursera is very flexible and is available to any one who is in possession of a computer and internet connection. However, what used to be free courses are now being charged for, with prices varying from $25 to $99 per programme. Although this is still significantly cheaper than traditional language lessons, the experience is not face-to-face, nor are they tailored specifically to you with the help of a personal mentor. Similar content can be found elsewhere on the internet for free, meaning it is a good idea to question how much of a difference paying will make to your learning.

Pros
  • Filter results by selecting course type, language, and level
  • Wide selection of different courses with breakdown of what exactly is included in the syllabus
  • Flexible and accessible to all with computer and internet connection
Cons
  • Courses can cost up to $99 and do not include face to face interaction or chance to ask questions directly to a tutor

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
