Learning languages online

Filed under: Day Care & Education, Gadgets

Yesterday, it was learning to play the guitar. Today, it's learning a foreign language. It seems there is no end to the educational opportunities available on the internet. Here are ten places to learn to speak a foreign language online, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the BBC, and the Foreign Service Institute.

The languages available aren't limited to one or two popular ones, either. Sure, I could brush up on my very rusty French, or expand my Spanish to more than just "Uno burrito lengua con queso, por favor". I could, however, learn Swahili, Thai, Hebrew, and even Gaelic. The only question is which one to start with?

Whether you want to be able to converse with your kids in the language they're learning in school or they want to supplement what they're getting in class, these are some cool resources for the aspiring polyglot.
