Hello, Kleavant! Of course you can learn Wordpress without paying a web hosting site. In this course you can find videos/instructions on setting up Wordpress to run on your local system. This is done both for a Mac and a Windows PC. Hope this helps! :sparkles:

You can use a local host to simulate (on your own local computer) what WordPress will look like before you decide to pay a host. To do this, download a local host like MAMP for Mac OS, or WAMP for Windows and install WordPress on the localhost.
