free online language courses

While doing some research for my devon4Africa blog I came across this cool online site which offers "free" language courses.
 It's called busuu  

The company is based out of Madrid Spain and they are in their 3 year. They were also the recipient of the Red Herring 100 European award (this is a competition that honors the most innovative companies in Europe). 

By joining, you will become part of their online community with worldwide access to language instruction for 9 languages. Besides Busuu (the main language spoken in the West African country of Cameroon), you can learn English, French, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian, and newly added - Turkish and Polish. 

They have recently added a premier level to their offerings, which has a slight fee, but the majority of the courses remain free. As a birthday special offer, you can take advantage of their upgrades for free if you sign up before May 25th

For those of you who want the convenience of learning from home this might be a perfect alternative for you. Looks like a lot of fun to me. Not to mention, it's F R E E !

If you are interested you can check out the website and sign up here

Sometime when you have a chance let me know what your son thought of Rosetta Stone. Its very popular. We looked into before last Paris trip, but was cost prohibitive. Thanks!
