Learn a Language Through Open University

iTunes can be a great place to find free education resources. Earlier this week I found a couple of good mathematics podcasts and today, through Teaching and Learning Spanish, I learned about Open University's foreign language learning programs on iTunes University. Open University has podcasts available to help students learn beginner's level Spanish, French, Welsh, Italian, and German. These are short podcasts designed to supplement regular course work.


Applications for Education
As I mentioned above these podcasts aren't designed as stand-alone courses, but they would be good supplementary materials for foreign language teaching.
