Because our foreign language lesson podcasts have generated a lot of interest this week, we wanted to mention another intriguing foreign language resource: The Mixxer.
An excellent way to learn a language is to participate in a language exchange. Years ago, when I set out to learn French, I went to Paris and found someone (a French person) who wanted to learn English, and we met twice a week and spent one hour speaking in English, the other hour in French. And, without fail, my command of French dramatically improved.
Now you don't need to travel very far to get involved in your own language exchange. The Mixxer has developed a site where you can find eager language partners, download Skype (the software that lets you talk over the internet for free), and then start your bilingual exchange.
With this and our collection of Free Language Lessons, the internet will rapidly get you up the language learning curve.
