While it’s extremely easy to get distracted with a whole lot of nothingness nowadays, there’s also never been a better time to learn new skills and abilities. The internet gives you access to thousands of apps that facilitate all sorts of learning processes, giving you the chance to do plenty of other things aside from scrolling through your Instagram feed until your eyes hurt.

Gizmodo compiled a list of the coolest apps that can teach you something new. Here are five of our favorites.

I know, what a lame and boring app to have, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it, okay? Dictionary.com is awesome, and the app can help you learn new and cool words that will make you seem much smarter than what you really are.
