Free Foreign Language Curriculum


Foreign language curriculum is one of the more difficult decisions to make for homeschooling. Most states require at least one foreign language credit to receive a high school diploma, so it's not something that we can just skip.

While there are local classes, online tutors, and even printed courses, these can get very expensive very quickly. I have purchased courses before only to find out that they didn't work at all for my child and they ended up not using it. Wasted money!

But I have discovered that there are so many FREE classes on the internet to learn a foreign language. I have collected some of the best for you.

I've only listed the more popular languages, but if you're interested in another language be sure to check the sites directly. Many of them offer far more than what I've listed here.
