It's all in the way you say it!
I am certain that I have done a post about inexpensive (or free?) ways to learn a foreign language, but I've found a few additional sites for you! Our public library here in Phoenix offers such benefits on its website, but here are some ideas for the rest of you who are looking for a way to become an international "guy/gal about town!"
Check out iTunes' podcasts for free lessons in over 3 dozen languages including Arabic, Bulgarian and "Bible Greek"...Free is the key word here (and it translates well into any language!)
Free language classes are available on Livemocha.com via total immersion and practice via chat with native speakers. You can submit writing and audio samples for native speakers to edit and correct...scary, yet effective!
Finally, try Babbel.com that offers unlimited access to its language course website for $11.95. (3 month membership is $6.65/mo.) It provides 7 basic languages and provides a mobile app for iPad, iPhone and iTouch!
And, if your library is as "with it" as the Phoenix Public Library system...perhaps you can get access to Rosetta Stone courses for free!
Buenos Dias, Bonjour, Guten Morgen...!
