Free lessons from the FSI

I love the internet.

Today I will introduce another reason to love it, especially if you’re a language learner.  It might help if you know English.

The FSI, or the Foreign Service Institute ( or Free, Super-cool, and Incredible) developed language courses that are now hosted on this site, which is totally free, super-cool, and incredible.

Their purpose, as stated on the home page:

This site is dedicated to making these language courses freely available in an electronic format. This site is not affiliated in any way with any government entity; it is an independent, non-profit effort to foster the learning of worldwide languages. Courses here are made available through the private efforts of individuals who are donating their time and resources to provide quality materials for language learning.

Pretty awesome if you ask me.

I’m using the site to do some Korean core-building.  If you’re not into Korean don’t worry.  There are over 40 languages covered on that site.

In the next post, I will introduce a very nice podcast for simultaneous Japanese and Korean practice.
