Learn Out Loud's mission is simple. They want to promote the use of audio and video educational material for personal and professional development. What does this mean? It means that they want to help you to see how you can turn 'dead time' (time spent commuting, exercising, doing chores, etc.) into 'learning time.' Most of us have at least a couple of hours each day where we could be learning a foreign language, deepening our spiritual or philosophical interests or learning about any of hundreds of different subjects. They want to help you find material that is both entertaining and educational.
A Christmas Carol has become Charles Dickens' immortal holiday gift to generations of readers. In this short novel, Dickens follows old mizer Ebenezer Scrooge as he is forced to face up to a life of selfish behavior and all-consuming greed. This redemptive tale has left its mark on the culture via stage, television and cinema, but perhaps its purist impact can only be found on the page. Enjoy this audio rendition of the definitive Christmas parable.
