Mastering a Foreign Language Doesn’t Have to Be Expensive.
At some point in their lives many people want to take up a foreign language. The problem is, at a first glance, learning a foreign language doesn’t seem cheap. Unless you’re a high school student and foreign language is a part of your curriculum, you’re most likely going to have pay something to learn this new skill. But is it really necessary to shell out big bucks? No, it’s not.
All The Languages of the World Right at Your Fingertips
If you have an Internet connection, then you technically have just about all you need to learn a foreign language right under your nose. It’ll take a bit of digging, but you’ll be able to turn up dozens of excellent, and free, resources. The problem is some consumers simply don’t have the time to weed out what they need to get started.
Short on Cash AND Time?
If you don’t have a lot of time to compile a variety of foreign language resources to use as study aids, then you’ll probably want to purchase a foreign language kit at your local bookstore. These kits are sometimes as cheap as $30. For a small investment, you might get five audio cds and one or two books.
There is a wide variety of foreign language tutoring services that can help you learn a foreign language, especially in larger cities. They are pricey, though. You’ll get about fifteen 90-minute lessons for around $3,000. If you can find a group language class rather than private tutoring, you’ll save money.
Another way to get private language tutoring for cheap is through your local college. No, don’t go to the college and enroll. Put up a help-wanted ad and pay a college student to teach you. Everyone knows students need cash and many will be willing to teach you to speak a foreign language for a very reasonable hourly rate.
