Informal Learning

The following is an infographic showing why informal learning is growing. Informal learning enable learners to have the autonomy, flexibility, and relevancy on their learning. It also promotes efficiency and accessibility because learners choose what they want to learn at their own pace.

I’m currently taking a qualitative research method class and seeking to discover how do adults learn English as a second language informally.  From my preliminary data analysis, I found that informal learning is very important to support  learning English formally at school. My participants said that the English courses and teachers are very helpful, but they need to practice English informally outside of school. Some of the practice outside of school is watching YouTube videos showing English conversations and movies. They said that watching the videos and movies help them to practice listening skills and pronunciation. I’m also still learning English informally and focusing more on my writing skills. I’ve joined @write_practice, @GrammarUnder, @AdviceToWriters, and @PhD2Published on Twitter to learn about writing.

So, what about you? Any experience of informal learning that you would like to share?
