From decoding conversations in order to determine "common communication patterns that cause problems" to learning West Coast swing dancing and gnocchi making, there's plenty of ways for lovers of learning to get inspired at a daylong festival June 15 in Wicker Park.

Classes, which are held at nine host venues in Wicker Park, fill up early, so online reservations are recommended.

Now in its fourth annual season, Learnapalooza also will be taking place in Lakeview (July 20) and Logan Square (Sept. 22).
