Free Online Language Class

Group-1I’ve invested money into Rosetta Stone, but I plan on enriching the experience in other ways.  One site I found that I have to share is Duolingo.  It is free and well balanced.  Activities require you to identify the meaning of words, translate, type the words, and speak.  Some of the activities are similar to ones you would find in expensive programs.

If you are interested, you can learn:

  • Spanish
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Portuguese
  • English

I’m not saying you’ll walk away completely fluent, but it will definitely increase your vocabulary and ability to put together grammatically correct statements.  Besides, you can’t beat free :).

    Another site that I have used and which schools often use here in the UK is http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/
    I’m not sure if all the material is available to people outside the UK but it may be worth a look.

    1. Thank you for sharing! I tried the “test your Spanish” section and I realized I am horrible. I’m hoping I can return there in a few months and not totally bomb it. Yikes.

    You can practice by speaking in a foreign language to your dog, especially while walking. It makes you think more in the language, and practice vocabulary. Then it won’t be so difficult when you speak to a human.
