Language Resources

This page contains a collection of language learning resources. Books. Apps. Programs. Websites. Find your language of interest and pick a language resource that looks good to you.

General Resources:
















PDF-Language-Lessons.com. Great site for Free PDF lessons. You can print these, write on them, read these as e-books and more. Highly recommended.

Language Learning Couple. A married couple that’s on a quest to learn languages. They focus on Japanese and Chinese and provide tips, strategies and fun videos in between to make learning easier. Consistently updated. Follow their progress to see how they learn. No single people allowed. (Kidding!)

OpenCulture.com: This is a massive online directory for language courses and learning courses in general. They list resources for over 48 languages. Titled “The best free cultural & educational media on the web.”

FluentIn3Months.com: Super popular language learning blog by language hacker/enthusiast/author and polyglot – Benny Lewis. Lots of practical advice on how to learn, make progress and stay motivated. He often writes about his progress in tackling new languages.

Omniglot.com: If you’re an overall language lover, you’ll like this one. Omniglot is a guide to all major alphabets and other writing systems. It also includes information on languages and links to other online language resources. You’re going to find some languages that you’ve never heard of here.

AJATT: All Japanese All The Time: A Japanese learning blog by the infamous Khatz. I think I saw him one time in Harajuku. But that’s about it. He mastered Japanese and outlines his language learning philosophies and gives advice that you can use for yourself. Well written blog and a great source of motivation as well.

Rosetta Stone: These guys have been around for a while and are well known in the language industry. Rosetta offers language learning software and live 1-on-1 lessons. Definitely worth a mention given their expertise and work put into helping people learn.

Duolingo: Duo’s a new player on the language learning block. Basically a free app that teaches you words through matching games, fill-in quizzes and flashcard style review. They offer a game-like approach which people like.

Memrise: This is a great little site with tons of languages to learn. Basically, it’s a flashcard style learning system where you can learn words, phrases and so on. Anything that can be put into flashcard form, you can learn here. People can also make their own lists and study decks.

Anki: This the love of every serious language nerd’s life. It’s a spaced repetition learning system – meaning flashcards – where you’re fed new words and phrases and see them again as needed. So, a great way to build vocab and phrases. Scientifically backed. Great for power users.

Babbel.com: Another online learning software, like Rosetta, where you learn a language. Somewhat flashcard and picture based, coupled with native pronunciations.

I have decided to learn Russian and Spanish at the same time. Will I be at risk of mixing them? The best book to learn Spanish is -A Good Spanish Book- according to the rankings, but which book should I pick for Russian? I haven’t seen any rankings for those.
