I’m not going to link these things because I’m lazy, but they’re all really good resources. I’ve tried hundreds of websites (that is probably not an exaggeration) and these are the ones that lasted. (Based on a combination of ease of use, quality of audio/translation, and lack of needing my bank details.)
Note: I don’t do the social thing very well, so if you’re looking for that, you’ll have to go look for yourself.
- Duolingo.com: Quizzes you and let’s you level up. Very fun and if you’re confused, you can just check the comments on a phrase. The community is still growing, so most of the confusing stuff has been solved already and even the phrases are becoming more natural. Bonus: you can hover over words you can’t remember the translation to. I’m on my third language here.
- Memrise.com: Basically a community that makes flash cards and gives you points, which just make you feel good. It’s not very bossy on when you need to learn, which is both nice and easy to forget. Bonus: you can learn science and literature on the site. I’m learning French, German, and physics from here.
- Lingua.ly: An app for Chrome that let’s you double click on words to translate them, and then saves them to a list to test on later. Very practical. Bonus: it shows you articles in your chosen language in your reading level. So far, I’m only using this for French.
- Google Dictionary: An app for Chrome again, also where you double click for translations, except this has the power of Google so it translates everything, even college English, into something you can understand. Bonus: synonym-finder. I use this for everyday use.
- about.com: Basically the dryest way of learning a language, but it helps fill in the gaps when things don’t make sense. Bonus: weekly emails with words of the day, verbs of the week, and lesson plans. I use this for French.
- Semi-honourable mention: buusu.com: I haven’t visited in a while, but I remember learning quite easily from them. Except they’re not free. If memory serves, the phone app is better than the website.
- Honourable mention: Khanacademy.org: I got through calculus thanks to this baby. Though the learning isn’t very natural, it is if you’re used to classrooms, and good teachers. Bonus: offers a variety of topics, even some coding. Double bonus: They just updated yesterday and ugh everything is beautiful; they test to see how far along you are so you don’t have to work your way up as hard. Triple bonus: it makes me feel smart and like I’m actually learning, even the blurbs of text make me feel loved and worthwhile. I use it to wake up in the morning.
And guys, I enjoy learning. These websites are going to make it easier, and some have email alerts to keep you on track, but this isn’t high school, you have to make yourself learn.
