April 1, 2011


Online Spanish Learning

I’ve already shown you some really great ways to learn Spanish for free online. Everything from crossword puzzles to TV shows to daily emails loaded with tips are all right there waiting to be gobbled up like Halloween candy. Mmmmm … candy!

Sorry. I got distracted there for a second!

While games and email tips should be a part of your language-learning journey, another critical piece is the right course to help you progress. Today I’m going to provide you with a roundup of the top interactive course sites online. Spanish learning will be fun and exciting once you start using these online lessons and courses. It’ll be so rewarding that you’ll want to share these sites with all your friends. I just know it.
So without further adieu, here is the list of top sites – and a few features of each that make them so cool – that you’ll want to start using today:

  • Babbel.com

    - Babble has an award-winning course that makes online Spanish learning super fun. You simply MUST check out the Spanish tongue twisters, which will help you learn pronunciation and grammar in the zaniest way I’ve ever seen.

  • SpanishDict.com

    - This is the fastest way to translate words from Spanish to English and English to Spanish. It’s really quick and easy because you can enter either language directly in the “translate” box. Before you do anything else on the site, however, make sure to sign up for the word of the day email. This will deliver a new Spanish word right to your inbox each day. You can then review these words while enjoying that candy I talked about. MMMMM CANDY!!!

  • Online-Spanish-Course.com

    – As I’ve shown you in the past, when it comes to learning Spanish there is nothing easier than flashcards. Online-Spanish-Course is the best place to learn with flashcards – some even have multiple-choice answers on them!

  • LingQ.com

    - LingQ is all about connecting with tutors and other language learners in the community. By far the coolest feature is having your writing corrected by Spanish-speaking experts. It’s just like being in class – except without the uncomfortable wooden desk seat!

  • Livemocha.com

    – Millions and millions of people are using Livemocha to help them with Spanish. It has one of the biggest learning communities in the world, which is a real testament to how great the site is. And because this community is so massive, you’ll be able to connect with lots of other language learners that are just like you.

  • MangoLanguages.com

    – Mango Languages is the place to be if you want to learn practical phrases and words. What I mean is that you’ll learn those phrases that you’ll most likely need when traveling abroad. They do a great job of making sure the games and courses are never boring. The imagery the site uses really helped me remember useful words and phrases. I know it will do the same for you.

  • Busuu.com

    - When it comes to helpful websites, busuu is the place to be for learning from native speakers. What’s even better is everything is done by video chat! “Makeup, please!”

  • MySpanishTeacher.com

    – This site caters to adult learners. What’s really amazing is it offers courses focusing on Spanish for teachers, bankers, healthcare workers, and even park rangers. If you need to learn Spanish for your profession, MySpanishTeacher has you covered.

  • StudySpanish.com

    – StudySpanish has your back no matter if you’re a totally new learner or are ready for advanced Spanish. Their courses have it all, including a free translator and tutorials.
