Like the OP, I also taught myself how to read, write and speak in English (my mothertongue is French). My school only taught English in later grades, and I wanted to be bilingual when I was very young so I did it myself. Funnily enough, part of my desire to be bilingual was because the only female cousin I had in my age range was English and I wanted to be able to talk about Sailor Moon with her. LOL!

I also taught myself how to read music, though I've always had a preference to learn music by ear since it just made more sense to me that way. I guess you could also say I taught myself how to cook, since it's not something I formally studied - I liked experimenting with different ingredient combinations and make patterns in my head of what worked together and what didn't.

Not huge self-taught ventures, but I did self-teach myself how to do with graphic arts and photography.

I started learning the oboe by myself, but got lessons a month or so after. Although that was just because an opportunity came up, I was set on actually learning it myself while occasionally asking questions to the first oboist in the community orchestra I was a part of. But then it turned out she had familial connections with a professional and I started lessons.

I start by reading books about specific topic that I want to learn, then quickly start to test and apply.

If financial literacy is considered then that would be one and it's greatly helping me with my life. At the moment i'm learning nihongo on my own as well.

Cooking! I love to cook. I even made some of my own recipe. I was inspired by a TV Show.

Creative writing, drawing, cooking, financial planning, general car maintenance. Since being on my own, I've made it my mission to learn new things so I can be more self sufficient.

I picked up drums almost 10 years ago, and apart from a short lesson DVD and an occasional rhythm video from professional drummers (like Bill Bruford or Gavin Harrison), I've been completely self-taught. The only tricky part was essentially learning backwards from complicated pieces to simpler stuff.
