Learn 46 Languages for Free Online: A Big Update to Our Master List

SONY DSCRight in time for your summer travels, we’ve just completed a big update to our rich collection of Free Foreign Language Lessons. Featuring free audio and video lessons, this handy resource will help you learn to speak Spanish, French, German, English, Chinese, Arabic, Italian, and Russian, plus 36 other languages. And it’s all for free, which is a lot less than what Rosetta Stone and other vendors will charge you. Not bad, especially considering that some of the lessons come from venerable institutions like Yale, Cambridge, Carnegie Mellon, Emory, the BBC, the US Peace Corps, the Foreign Service Institute, and more.

The complete list of Free Foreign Language Lessons, includes the following languages: Arabic, Bulgarian, Cambodian, Catalan, Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, Gaelic, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lao, Latin, Lithuanian, Luxembourgish, Maori, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Sign Language, Spanish, Swahili, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Vietnamese, Welsh and Yiddish.

    Rosetta Stone is supposedly a terrible way to learn, from many things I’ve read, and many youtube videos I’ve watched, which are usually comparing it to the Pimsleur method, which is supposedly excellent [I've never heard or read anybody say anything against the Pimsleur method, only always in full support and admiration].

    Although one of the resources listed (ChineseLearnOnline.com) was free in the past, it is now a paid site.
