September 1, 2009 by · 2 Comments 

There are loads of Spanish Courses and Schools I have covered yet a lot do not have the budget for it. Today I will cover how to learn to speak Spanish for free. I have added 6 top sites that have a focus on learning Spanish language for free.

1) BBC – Learn Spanish for Free Course
BBC Learn Spanish Course offers a wide range video and audio courses of over 30 different languages. It has a variety of course options. Its very basic, but a nice way to learn to speak basic Spanish for free. Aside from that I really recommend reading the news in Spanish from there, or watching Spanish broadcasts.

2) Massachusetts Institute of Technology – Learning Spanish Language Open Course
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers a wide range of its courses online, including its language courses! I can recommend the literature material to supplement your studying. MIT is a front runner on opening up its courses to the main public and I hope this trend will be followed by other leading universities.

3) My Happy Planet – Learning Spanish Through Exchange
My Happy Planet is mainly a language exchange site, but site users have uploaded a bunch of Spanish Lessons you can use. It is fairly active. After signing up it was very easy to find language exchange partners, it has quite a large database.

4) The Open University – Learn Spanish Free Course
Great Spanish course content can be found there.

5) Livemocha – Free Spanish Language Learning Through Exchange
Again a great Free Site that has loads of free Spanish material. Beware though they are commercial and will give a lot of buying options.

6) Learning Spanish Language – learn to speak Spanish for free Course

I hope these 6 sites will get you started and give you the option of learning the Spanish language for free. Don’t just sit there, and start learning Spanish right now!

What is a good Spanish course for someone who knows French?

November 14, 2008 by · 2 Comments 

I know French and so I can understand *loads* of vocabulary passively, and I know basic Spanish phrases as well. So I am looking for a course which I won’t get bored with because its too easy or moves too slowly.

You’ll pick up Spanish quickly if you have a good knowledge of another romance language.

e.g. Michel Thomas vocab CDs, Pimleur etc.

Good luck!
