# 2. Lifelong Learning & L2

Are you a Lifelong Learner? Would you like to become one? Before we embark on this new online learning and discovery journey take a few minutes to review some habits that can assist in creating lifelong learners. These habits, which have been called the Seven and 1/2 Habits of Highly Successful Lifelong Learners, will provide you with a refresher on what it means to be a lifelong learner.

Discovery Exercise:

1. Make sure you have headphones or speakers attached to your computer.

2. Open up the 7 & 1/2 Habits online tutorial and view the online tutorial.

3. As you watch and listen, write down which habit among the 7 & 1/2 that is the easiest for you and which is the hardest. You will use your personal blog (which you will set up next) to post your thoughts about lifelong learning.

Have fun! If you haven't jumped on board yet, it's never too late to become a lifelong learner.
