I have been informed that FSI Languages is back online on the following link:

fsi lang

Update 19 February 2013

It appears that the FSI Languages is down.
As an alternative, i recommend the following websites:
BBC Languages
OpenCulture Languages
Word2Word.com – Lots of links to choose from
Learn A Language
Livemocha – lots of courses and lots of languages

=>End update

FSI Languages offers free online courses on 41 languages.
Besides the text material, you can also find the audio tapes and pronunciation guides.
They’re also easy to follow and very well structured.

Note from the website:
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.

If you love learning a new language, or at least giving it a try, then click on the link below and have some fun.

Another website very much worth mentioning is Ielanguages.com. This website has been my favorite for quite some time now and is been improved a lot over the last 2 years. Thank you for all your efforts, miss Wagner.

  • Hi Carol,

    You readers may be interested to hear that the FSI material is being put back up for use at:


    I hope that helps.

    • Thank you, Ray.

      There are some broken links on the website though…

      • Hi Carol,
        I am still getting all the material up – it is over 20 gigs, but as of today, we are only missing the last course – Yoruba. The rest should work. For Yoruba I am changing the audio file names from their current form (which looks like a1b3dd.mp3) to titles that actually make sense. That will hopefully make it easier for people to us. I should have it done and uploaded by the end of the day today (April 13th). If, after today you find any broken links, please let me know.
