Free Language Course Materials Online

There are a lot of language learning courses out there, however for most of them you have to pay. There are however also a lot of free language learning materials that you can use. One of these are the courses from the Foreign Service Institute. These are courses produced by the US government to teach its diplomats on how to speak foreign languages. A lot of languages are covered by these courses, including some rare ones. These are very comprehensive courses and if you want to learn like a US diplomat, then they are the way to go. However the downside is that they contain a lot of drills and might be a bit boring. They are also a bit dated, with many of them being produced in the 1950s and 1960s. If you don’t mind this boring and dated part, then they are a great resource. I used the Spanish course when I was learning Spanish.
