3 Minute Dutch – Free taster course| Lessons for beginners

Build a solid foundation in the Dutch language and start to communicate your thoughts and opinions

Created by Kieran Ball - 3 Minute Languages, 313,000+ students


Students: 5086, Price: Free

Hallo! Hello and welcome to 3 Minute Dutch :-)

3 Minute Dutch is a collection of online lessons that helps the complete beginner learn to speak Dutch in simple, bite-sized chunks.

The lessons start off by giving you a few words that you can use to build your own sentences. For example, in lesson one, you'll learn these words and phrases:

goed - good
het is - it is
fantastisch - fantastic
hier - here
heel - very
het is niet - it isn't

With those words, you can build sentences like these:

It's good.
It's here.
It's very good here.
It isn't here.
It isn't good; it's fantastic!

(See if you can translate those five sentences above into Dutch just by using those words and phrases.)

The lessons continuously build on what you've been learning, enabling you to express yourself fluently in Dutch. As you move through the course, you'll pick up new vocabulary, useful grammar points and interesting ways to look at the structure of the Dutch language that will give you plenty of "Aha!" moments.

The reason it's called "3 Minute Dutch" is because the lessons are broken down into very short, three-minute chunks. Everybody, no matter how busy you are, has time to fit in a single three-minute lesson once a day, and in fact, by keeping learning to such short chunks, you'll reap huge benefits. Short but consistent daily lessons are more effective than a longer lesson once or twice a week, because you'll find you maintain enthusiasm, develop a learning habit and you'll also memorise everything much better.

If you've never learnt Dutch before, or if you have had a bad experience with learning this beautiful language, the 3 Minute Dutch lessons will help you to succeed.

Dank u :-)


An Inspiration-Driven, Success-Giving Life

Discover Your Inner Power and Dynamically Share it with Others

Created by Kalamali Joy - Marketing Consultant and Successful Entrepreneur


Students: 5003, Price: Free

Only you know who you really are. Only you know your true capabilities, and your innermost aspirations and ideals. You have the responsibility to know yourself and to be true to what you are here to give. Fulfilling this is your purpose.    

Following this inspiration is a pathway to success. You will not find happiness by serving what others think you ought to do, but by following your heart—your own inner guidance, and listening to your higher Self. Feel what lays dormant inside of you, waiting to be shared; bursting with energy, enthusiasm, and joy!

There is no reason to continue going through life without inspiration—that which we are here to find within ourselves, and to share with mankind.

“If your vocation does not satisfy your heart, it is not the right path for you.If you want to reach the abode of lasting peace and happiness, you should pursue whatever path your heart’s desire tells you to follow.” —Paramhansa Yogananda

We are here to grow with one another, to aspire to become a part of a greater reality, and to awaken to our infinite potential. We are here to learn lessons, to find purpose, to give meaning to life, and to expand our God-given higher natures.

Now is the time to begin an inspired life full of purpose and meaning.


The purpose of this course is to help others tune into the inspiration and meaning in life that they are seeking. To learn how to be successful in the highest sense, by rediscovering the boundless fountain of enthusiasm and joy for life that resides within.

To be alive is to be on fire with purpose, to move forward with undaunted determination toward a goal. You must be enthusiastically active, make something of yourself,and give something worthwhile to the world.” —Paramhansa Yogananda

The inspiration for this course is Paramhansa Yogananda, author of one of the best-selling spiritual books, Autobiography of a Yogi. Yogananda came to the US to share the ancient yoga teachings of India, with applications to this age of energy, far ahead of his time. His profound yet practical teachings inspired successful leaders and creatives like Steve Jobs, George Harrison, Luther Burbank, and Henry Ford.

Use this course as a practical guide that you can return to at any time to rejuvenate yourself, your life purpose, and regain your center for a happier, more fulfilling life.  By guiding you through the process of finding your source of inspiration in life, we will lead you to your purpose, and give you the beginning steps for making an inspiration manifest.

The course is filled with practical exercises to help you apply what you read so that the book becomes your own experience. Your own insight will help to make the course more meaningful, and your participation will make it come alive.

The intensified drought conditions projected under climate change will present challenges for the management of reservoirs, aquifers and other water infrastructure.

In this course, you will learn about drought and its impacts on society and the environment, while gaining practical tips and tools to help you and your family save water. Through videos, quizzes and activities with tips and links to trusted resources, you will learn more about:

  • different types of drought;
  • historical, current and projected drought trends for the United States;
  • the health, financial, social and environmental impacts of drought;

The course uses the current California drought as a case study throughout and draws on expertise and interviews from trusted sources, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's WaterSense program, the National Drought Mitigation Center, the U.S. Forest Service, NASA, NOAA and others.

Christian help for Depression

How to get free from Depression

Created by Pastor Pat Buckley - Christian help for Depression


Students: 3180, Price: Free

How to Set the Captives Free:

If you want freedom from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, fear, suicidal thoughts or trauma, or If you would like to be trained in helping people get set free from any of these oppression's, here are the fundamental biblical principles that we have found as the building blocks for any person to be set free.

No human Psychotherapy (talk therapy) or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (changing underlying beliefs) can ever compare with the truth from the Word of God, to help set a captive free.

For example, and there are many examples, all humans have Guilt, Shame, and Condemnation from past sins. To ask a person to forget past sins, or to ignore, the guilt shame and condemnation, is preposterous, and makes no sense.

The only remedy, and the everlasting remedy, for a Christian, is, the promise of (I will remember your sins no more Heb 8:12). This promise, will bring a clear conscious, and will wash away, all Guilt, Shame and condemnation, that comes from past sins.

This is one reason (and there are many) why there is no comparison to the freedom setting truth from the Word of God, to any man made remedy from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma,  eating disorders, cutting, Anger and Rage, and any other oppression's.

We must address the spiritual problem, when the spiritual issues are overcome, then the person can taste the freedom that Jesus has provided.

Once the spiritual battle is won against any of these oppressions like, Depression, Anxiety, Fear, PTSD, Bolima, panic attacks, Bipolar, trauma anxiety, Stress, (psychological Disorders), Feeding and Eating Disorders, Cutting - Self-Injury, the battle in the flesh can be overcome much easier, but, there is no freedom until the spiritual battle is won, because the essence of these disorders are spiritually based.

How To Buy A Happy Home: Life Changing Myths & Mindsets

Choose a house that supports the life you dream of living. Home buying lessons you must learn before buying a house.

Created by Bill Joyce - Coaching HomeBuyers On Choosing The Right House For Their Best Lives


Students: 3154, Price: Free

Schools don't teach people how to choose a life partner, manage money or buy a house.  We  simply learn by doing...often with devastating results.  Online learning is such a great resource and offers those with experience and knowledge a platform to help others.  This course contains the wisdom I would share with my younger self if that were only possible.  Over the years I have made both good decisions and poor decisions on house purchases.  As a real estate Broker in California I have helped hundreds of people buy a house and I understand the way we all think during this exciting and demanding life choice.  Take these lessons to heart and it will change the course of your life.  I guarantee it.

This is a fast paced and easy introduction to how people view the purchase of a house and how you can view it more realistically and productively.  Most of are raised to want to buy a house and feel safe, secure and settled.  I can tell you from personal experience, buying the wrong house will leave you feeling unsafe, insecure and unsettled while you lie awake at 3 AM feeling a crushing sense of dread.  Been there, done that.  While I am truly an advocate for home ownership, it really is only viable at the right time, under the right circumstances and with the right house.

Buying a house is only one part of building the home you dream of living in.  Dream homes are about people, relationships, experiences and creating memorable moments.  If you are not living happily now, a different house is not the solution to your problem.  Spend too much and commute too far and your life will change in ways you never imagined.  

This is a starter course to introduce students to where we go right and wrong when buying a home. 

While many of us have a romanticized image of finding our 'dream home', the reality is life comes with challenges.  Anticipate and plan for them.  The Social Security Administration says that only 5% of workers at retirement age will be financially independent, Bankrate has documented that 76% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck and half of all marriages end in divorce.  It's not the regular latte's that do the most damage, it is getting the big decisions completely wrong wreak havoc on the lives of unsuspecting house shoppers.

Buying a house is a big and exciting transition, and is particularly important for launching each of us on the right path for a happy and successful life.  House choice has a large impact on your family's future, both personally and financially so this is something you want to get right.

I teach and coach home buyers across the country on balancing a house purchase with life goals.  As such I seek one of three outcomes.

1) You cheese not to buy a house.  If it's not the right time or circumstances, don't do it now.  Wait until the time is right for you.

2) You buy a different house.  Most home buyers overspend or add too much to their travel time.  I encourage people to buy a house that leaves money and time for more important things in their lives... like people and experiences.

3) You buy the same house, but you are different.  Choosing to make a house a priority is just fine as long as everyone understands and anticipates the challenges and sacrifice this will call for.  Go in eyes open and informed and you will better prepared for a happy home life.

If you're thinking about a house, take this'll know right away that this is life changing wisdom.

Guide to the Hive and Steem Ecosystems

Hive and Steem Blockchains

Created by Wayne Davies - Economist


Students: 1938, Price: Free

The Hive and Steem blockchains are referred to as the ecosystems because of the diverse activity that they support. Bloggers, photographers, artists, vloggers, developers, researchers, crypto-enthusiasts, alternative media, entrepreneurs, and many more have found their homes in the either the Hive or Steem Ecosystems. Unlike many other types of social platforms, Hive and Steem reward those that contribute to them. The power of reward distribution lies in the hands of the community.

When I created this course in 2019, the Hive blockchain did not exist. In March 2020, Steem was Hard forked splitting into two separate blockchains. The original Steem Blockchain remained and a new blockchain Hive was created. The two blockchains are very similar in terms of what they offer (e.g. rewards for creating and curating content). The biggest difference between the two blockchains is control. Steem is a centralised blockchain controlled mostly by a single entity (i.e. Steemit). Whereas, Hive is run by the community and is considerably more decentralised. The videos in this course are explained in the context of Steem but they are more relevant to Hive. Additional resources and slides have been provided to show the equivalent Hive interfaces, DApps, and tools. Many of the DApps have either migrated from Steem to Hive or operate on both blockchains.

This course takes you on journey through the Steem and Hive Ecosystems. The course is broken down into 5 core sections and an additional section which will be updated with information regarding new developments. These sections are as follows:

- Getting Started

- Navigating Steem and Hive Frontends

- Becoming a Steem or Hive User

- Behind the Scenes

- The Wonders of the Steem and Hive Ecosystems

The ‘Getting started’ Section introduces the Steem and Hive Ecosystems and provides a quick overview of some of their key features. This section explains what the blockchain is and provides some basic information about how the Steem and Hive blockchains operate. This section also explains how someone can sign up as well as buy and sell Steem or Hive.

The ‘Navigating Steem and Hive Frontends’ Section introduces several of the Hive and Steem User Interfaces. These include Steemit (Hive Blog on Hive), SteemPeak (Peakd on Hive), and Busy. The user interfaces enable users to post content to the Steem blockchain as well as access content posted to the blockchain.

The ‘Becoming a Steem and/or Hive User’ Section explains several key categories of users. These categories broadly include content creators, investors, curators, developers, gamers, readers/viewers/listeners, and those that want to try everything. This section demonstrates how to post content, vote for content, support projects and developers, and how to earn rewards as an investor in Hive or Steem.

The ‘Behind the scenes’ Section explains how the Hive and Steem Ecosystems operate and how they support all of the activity that takes place within them. This section is the most technical but is essential to explaining how the blockchain makes everything we see possible.

The ‘Wonders of the Steem and Hive Ecosystems’ Section explores many of the amazing features available in the Hive and Steem Ecosystem. Such features include the decentralised applications, which includes video platforms, games, photography applications, mobile applications and even a fitness application. Other features include numerous tools that can help navigate and analyse the ecosystem. The Hive and Steem Ecosystems even enable users to create their own tokens as well as tribes/communities.

If you are curious about what you have read so far, this course will provide you with all the information you need to make a decision about joining either Hive or Steem or both.

If you are already part of the Hive or Steem Ecosystems, this course will provide you with more information as to how you can further enhance your experience.

It can be a tough and difficult situation to deal with lockdown and isolation during a Pandemic. Here are 15 videos and articles that will give your advice and ideas on how to survive a Pandemic during quarantine and lockdown. The key thing is to stay positive and look at opportunities and solutions instead of going into a downward negative spiral with anxiety and fear. It's up to you to decide how you want to deal with this situation that can be stressful.


Staying positive when the world is going crazy is one of the best ways of surviving the tide and making it out of the storm. However, this task can be challenging but may possibly be the only thing which can get you out of the woods. It requires a strong mindset. If you are struggling to bring yourself to remain positive in times of calamity, here are some tips to help you:

1. Plan ahead

As goes the scout’s motto- “Be Prepared”! Planning ahead can help control your stress levels and anxiety in a world where people are going crazy. That is one way of knowing you can face anything. One way of making sure you and your loved ones remain positive when faced with negativity is by being well prepared for whatever comes. That is why it is advisable to be prepared for emergencies before they occur. You can prepare for a pandemic before it strikes. You can achieve this by taking the necessary measures needed before it begins-Adequate food, reinforced shelter, warm clothing etc., relevant equipment etc.

2. Filter information

Avoid bad news whenever you can. Do not focus on the kind of information that will not help rectify the situation. Pay attention to material that gives advice on how you can overcome or guard against being affected by the worsening of the pandemic. Filtering information can also mean changing the subject when it is brought up countless times.

3. Keep exercising

As you know, exercising is a great way of staying positive, staying healthy, and improving your overall physical and mental well-being. Exercising can also help keep your mind in check. Concentrating on improving your health is another method of staying positive when everyone else is going insane. One mistake you can make when faced with difficulties is changing or cancelling your workout routine. Therefore, keep exercising and enjoy the process.

4. Dwell on happy thoughts

Thinking happy thoughts does not come easy when it seems as if your world is falling apart. That is why you have to try and force your mind to focus on happy thoughts or what is happening internally and not externally. If you cannot think of anything that shifts your mind from the bad news that is being broadcasted everywhere, create happy thoughts. You can achieve this by envisioning where you will be when all the madness is over. Think about the number of people who have overcome or who are overcoming the same situation you are in, look at your photo album and rekindle the happy memories.

5. Manage your finances

Mishandling your finances is quite easy when you are dealing with a pandemic or a problem that affects a lot of people at the same time. Hence, you need to start managing your finances wisely to avoid having regrets when the problem has passed. You can avoid bankruptcy by just staying calm, avoiding compulsive debts and keeping accurate records and information.

6. Try caring for someone else

Sometimes caring for someone else is all it takes to maintain your sanity. Shift your focus to doing something worthwhile for someone else or putting a smile on someone else’s face. Achieve this by helping the person you choose to help or care for stay safe or recover from what they are going through.

7. Meditate

Meditation is an excellent way of relaxing your mind and having a much clearer perspective on things. Meditation is a relaxation method that you can begin practicing right away. If it is something that you are practicing already, continuing with it is worthwhile. Try clearing your mind from negative thoughts and focus on one thing that is positive. Do this every single day for at least 30 minutes without any interruptions.

8. Continue with your work or studies

You may start panicking if you think that your professional life is on hold during a pandemic. However, realize that not being able to go to the office does not necessarily mean the end of progress- this will help you remain calm. Continue with your work or study even if you cannot go to the office or on campus. Remember that working or studying from home has its fair share of benefits as well. You are able to work peacefully without the worries of dressing up, with zero or a few distractions. You are able to control your environment and work at your own pace.

9. Enjoy whatever you do

Make it a priority to enjoy whatever you do during the pandemic. If you are working on something that you have to do but not necessarily enjoy, try coming up with fun or alternative ways of doing things. Instead of doing your work or completing your projects the way your supervisor suggests, you can do it your own creative way, as long as the job done impeccably and impressively.

10. Avoid negative people

No matter what happens in the world, negative people will always look for ways to blow things out of proportion. That is why avoiding negative people in supposedly perilous times is the best thing to do. If you are told to stay at home and cannot avoid those sharing the house, you can encourage the people around you to remain positive. While it may be impossible to make sure everyone stays positive, you can always bring up something positive to talk about. This will change the atmosphere.
