Learn a language online – free

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With our world becoming smaller and smaller, we are seeing many more people that want to learn a language other than their native one.

And what’s the most cost-effective way to do that? On the internet, of course.

calls itself “the social way to learn a language”. There are lessons (you proceed at your own pace), but the different angle is that you can actually communicate with speakers of other languages from around the world.

The site currently supports 11 languages, with plans to add more soon.

I would like to argue the case for Esperanto as the international language. It is a planned language which belongs to no one country or group of states.

Take a look at http://www.esperanto.net It will point you towards online learning sites.

Esperanto works! I’ve used it in speech and writing in a dozen countries over recent years. Indeed, the language has some remarkable practical benefits. Personally, I’ve made friends around the world through Esperanto that I would never have been able to communicate with otherwise. And then there’s the Pasporta Servo, which provides free lodging and local information to Esperanto-speaking travellers in over 90 countries.
