* Watching/reading works in foreign languages can teach that language. It's not perhaps as good as spending a couple of weeks having to speak and read that language exclusively, but it's good practice beforehand.

Watching anime subbed can help you pick up Japanese, the same applies to movies and videogames. There is even a meme about it in Latin American countries, saying "I learned english more from the Playstation than with school."

* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' is a very light-hearted and comedic take on ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', but it does do a very good job of explaining he ''incredibly'' in-depth lore of the franchise.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' has been used by countless Philosophy and Religious Studies professors as a teaching tool, since the concepts integral to the Jedi way of life can be so easily likened to a plethora of Eastern religions and philosophies, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, and ''bushido''. If you're a Western moviegoer from a predominately Christian community, there's a good chance that the movies gave you your first glimpse at a form of spirituality other than the one that you were raised with, and probably served as your introduction to certain spiritual ideas--like the concept of an all-pervading divine force that encompasses the Universe itself--that are very much sacred {{canon}} in many world religions.

For what it's worth, it's also a crash course on the Japanese court system.
