I have a confession to make. I have always wanted to learn how to speak Italian and French. I already speak Spanish, or Spanglish as my mom says, but I always believed that learning these languages would enhance my life somehow, hmmm.
I wanted to learn online and be able to work on it at my own pace because local classes meant having to keep to a schedule set by someone else, and money wise? I found out quickly that learning a new language can get pricey.
Since all of my "extra" cash goes to traveling as much as I possibly can, I knew I wasn't about to drop $179 and up to learn Italian. So I went on the hunt, you know the one, the "there has to be a cheaper way" bargain hunt!
And ta-da, there is, here are two for your consideration.
You can get a free e-Course from the site eLanguage School. Just pick a language and sign up on the left hand side of the site.
The one I signed up for to learn Italian was through our good friends over at the BBC. They offer 12-week courses and teach you words, letters, phrases and sentences using a scripted and story lined video series.
Pretty awesome, I must say. I have been blogging and writing a lot lately and have fallen off on my own Italian lessons. But I will be resuming them soon. And after Italian, yep you guessed it, I'll be signing up for the French lessons as well.
I asked my sons to watch the first video of La Mappa Misteriosa but they declined. My grand daughter liked it though. And she's a quick learner for sure. Maybe you will have better luck and you and your kids can be bilingual with out spending a dime.
