    Free Language Courses For Your MP3 22nd May 07 at 3:30 PM
    What's on offer?

    There's a great US website called Open Culture which lists mostly free language courses that are available as podcasts (in other words digital files you can download onto an MP3 player to listen to).

    These are contained in the Foreign Language section which lists links to a range of language learning websites and podcasts for lots of languages including Spanish, German, French, Chinese, English, Italian, Hindi, Russian and many more.

    How to get your download

    Many of the podcasts have direct links to iTunes (which you can download for free here) otherwise follow the links to the website and click on 'download MP3'.
    The courses tend to come in individual lessons, and list the most recent lesson first, which means if you're starting fresh you'll need to scroll down to find the first lesson.

    Many of the language courses also have RSS feeds - which is a web way of getting you an automatic update of new material. For more information on how to set up an RSS feed have a look at MoneySaver SRA's very useful RSS guide.

    Also of interest..

    The main site also has lists of free audio books, arts & culture, science and technology podcasts as well as current affairs (though these have an American bias).
