I've been trying to master a third language for almost 10 years now but because of work, school, kids, and life in general, I've been unable to do so. I did get to try a bunch of online resources though that were just amazing. Here are some in case you're trying to learn these languages:


KOREAN

http://talktomeinkorean.com/ - Free

https://www.learn-korean.net/# - Free


FRENCH

http://oli.cmu.edu/courses/all-oli-courses/french-i-course-details - Used to be free, now only the sample is

http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/french/ - Free


I also tried a lot of audiobooks and found Michel Thomas to be the best for both French and Spanish.


What are the best sites you've tried and for what language?

I like Duolingo - Such a great app for learning a language! It doesn't feel like a chore and it reminds you every day to practice!

I can help with Russian and Ukrainian languages

Duolingo is great for building vocab. A lot of the sentences you learn though are not really sentence you'll use conversationally. :P

Hey,


Ok, so let me start with (probably) the least expected language - Slovene :) / Slovenian.

Since I moved here and tried to live, I needed to learn it fast and it was a bit of a problem, despite being a Slavic language and me being Polish. Btw. if you were not sure were to go for beautiful vacation and still be in Europe - you just found Slovenia! Just google it ;)


PONS - it's working well with many langs, but I have to praise them for good job here:

https://en.pons.com/translate?q=slovenian+is+fun&l=ensl&in=en&lf=en


Good and bid dictionary:

https://fran.si/


Cases! Yes, there are 6 of those and 3 forms (singular, double! and plural), meaning that you need to learn 18 forms of each noun :)

See below:

Other languages will follow :)
