I used to speak a little russian and would love to learn a lot more of it.

“Becoming a dissident is not something that happens overnight.  You do not simply decide to become one.  It is a long chain of steps and acts.  And very often during this process, you do not really reflect upon what is happening...You don’t want to become involved with the dirt that is around you and one day, all of a sudden you wake up and realize that you are a dissident, that you are a human rights activist.” – Vaclav Havel, former Czech President (1993-2003) & activist

 

We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail.  He can be caught.  He can be killed and forgotten.

But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world.

I'm game! After a while you should be past the "guest" part of being here, and actually a member, and we can start then!

Clearly not. They say they are willing to help us learn, but they don't. Who knows why.

Folks come and folks go.

I can tell you that I used Pimsleur to learn French and it went better for me than going to French class...Pimsleur helps you learn every day while in class you only learn 2 times a week max

I would be interested in ANY language class! I'm fairly fluent in Spanish and have plans (ganas) to become a translator and interpreter someday :) I'm also working on my French language skills, especially listening, as I'm close enough to BC to pick up French-language radio stations! LOL Shoot me a msg when class is ready and I'll come running!! :2thumbsup:

FYI, there's a website that I have used in the past that can get you started on some languages; it's free, though you can upgrade to gain access to more advanced lessons.

http://www.busuu.com/

You can also try searching for "free (fill in the blank with your language choice) lessons online;" there are many sites dedicated to promoting language learning.

I was thinking that it would be great to have some language classes for basic conversation and grammar..
Right now I would love to see a Russian language class.
Also, I could teach Arabic and 1 of its dialects.

Greetings! :) There is a wonderful website by RosettaStone called LiveMocha.com ... you can earn credit by helping others who are learning your language, and vice versa. It's like a language learning community. Msg me if u want to chat! :)

I was using this one language class online created by Rosetta Stone, but it got taken down :( It was called Livemocha.com, it was awesome. Best language site i've used, hands down.

 

Now I need to find new ones :(
