Throughout the summer months, I had some courses that I bought from Switched on Schoolhouse, a fourth grade curriculum. Well, after my son finished 4th, during the summer, he went through these courses again. He found it enjoyable because of the games and visual demonstrations included in the lesson plans. Games and visual demonstrations help learners grasp new concepts and add knowledge to old ones.you can't be timid in trying to learn something new. Self confidence is key because you are more willing to fail and try again to eventually succeed if you do not feel ashamed/embarrassed for having failed/ not getting the right answer the first time.
