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.

"Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." (St. Manuel II Palaiologos)

"Now one cannot be a half-hearted Christian, but only entirely or not at all." (Fr. Seraphim Rose)

If you don't see a Nestorian behind every corner and every rock, you're probably a Nestorian too.

If you can't beat 'em, call them a Nestorian.

These are top-notch language-learning methods.

Have fun.
