Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi

I am thinking of learning french and/or russian. In the days of open source software, I am sure
people have created great resources for this purpose. I am looking for such learning material.
May be videos and stuff. Should have clear information on pronunciations. There is a lot
of information pollution on the net. So its difficult to decide which is good.

Can any native speakers of these languages guide me to the intelligent resources.

I found this Annenberg Foundation site after seeing their advert on our local public broadcasting station for the n'th time. You will have to allow pop-ups to view their videos.

This is the best that I have seen. It consists of documents from the governments language training program that are now in public domain. The FSI (whomever they are) gathered them all up and created this website.

FSI = Foreign Service Institute. Used to teach State Dept. and other Government employees before/during overseas assignments. Now I believe they use Rosetta Stone. Not 100% sure on that though because I've been a civilian so long.

Why not learn Norwegian instead?
It's a beautiful language (the best there is, actually)!

As for learning it, just move here, and you'll learn it soon enough.

Welcome!
