Living on a Budget

Want to be schooled in Spanish or become fluent in French but don’t have the money for one of those mucho dinero “immersion” courses? Check out Livemocha, which offers 160 hours of learning materials in 13 languages—for free.
The lessons, at beginner and intermediate levels, cover essential skills for listening, reading, writing and speaking in Spanish, French, Hindi, Italian, Icelandic, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, German, Korean, Arabic and Mandarin Chinese (and English, which remains the most popular language, company officials say). Best of all, its 1 million-member online community allows you to practice with native speakers through instant messaging and chat at no charge.
