You’ve always meant to learn another language, but there just wasn’t enough time. Well, that time has come. Sure, you can sign up for any of the various the pay-to-learn programs like Rosetta Stone, Fluenz, Pimsleur, Babbel, etc.
But if you just want to dip your toe in the verbal pool and not submerge yourself into a weightier course, you might want to try one of the free programs like Dr. Danny Evans’ Spanish for Beginners or Duolingo’s basic courses that include everything from French to Swahili. It even has a course in Hawaiian and Irish.
