Want to Learn a Foreign Language? Free Lessons!

At the risk of stating the obvious, one of the things that I love about the Internet is that there are so many formal and informal learning opportunities. In fact, back in August I wrote about how much easier it is to learn something new today as compared to just fifteen years ago. Open access to learning opportunities is one of the reasons I enjoy Open Culture so much. Open Culture is devoted to the idea of sharing learning opportunities.

Open Culture has an extensive list of free resources for learning thirty-seven different languages. All of the resources in the list can be downloaded to your computer or iPod. When available, Open Culture has linked to the iTunes feed for the learning resources.
