Free Language Lessons

I have not had time to spend on this but I was trying to brush up on my Spanish and it looked interesting. Also offered are French, German, Italian and others.

Looks like fun. I've been brushing up on my Spanish while helping the youngest get prepared for a CBE he took last week, and I'll be continuing that while he takes Spanish II this year. We were using Destinos, which he liked, but I see some interesting things on the BBC site that I think he would enjoy. Thanks

I completed the BBC intermediate French refresher course last year. Quite helpful in trips to Quebec and La Belle France!

Another very useful and free (at least for now) language learning site is www.livemocha.com - "rosetta stone" like classes and a social network of people teaching people through reviewing each others exercises, and text, voice and video chat.

I was just a hardworking farm boy, and she was an international supermodel. I knew I would only have one chance to impress her....

So I became a cunning linguist.
