Public Domain FSI Language courses
« on: October 16, 2013, 02:45:56 PM »
I came across this website that has language courses that were developed by the US Government. Supposedly they are in the public domain. I think I'll try to learn more Serbo-Croatian from this site (It's free!!!!) but there's many languages to choose from.

Yeah, it's free. I used that site before. It was kind of boring, so I mixed it with these:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/

http://www.voanews.com/

http://voiceofrussia.com/

http://www.lexilogos.com/english/

Wikipedia is also helpful to read articles. Youtube can be used for audio to learn accents and speaking frequency.

Of course, when you learn enough you can read the Bible in the target language. I have an Arabic and Spanish version downloaded on my Android phone.

This profile is defunct as of 11/8/2017. I created it before Orthodoxy, and have used it after Orthodoxy.

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

I will likely lurk on this forum under a different name.

These are top-notch language-learning methods.

Have fun.
