Free Web Based Language Learning Lessons

smartfm_logo.pngThe website smart.fm offers free lessons about different subjects, but a subject where smart.fm has a lot of lessons is language learning. On smart.fm, you can hear audio, run through a flashcard like application, do word matching, learn meanings of words in full sentences, and word typing. You are given instant feedback and you are given a performance score at the end of your lesson. You can also create a free account to save the lessons you have completed (or create goals with time frames). If you create an account, you can build up the number of words you learn in a lesson.

characters, and you only have a US keyboard,this website will make your life a whole lot easier!

Now, through the miracles of Unicode and JavaScript,
you can just navigate to this site, type whatever you need to type in a text box,

message, etc.
You can type foreign characters by clicking buttons or by pressing intuitive
keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+Letter). Now typing in French, German, Russian and many more languages is simple.
