The above link is to a collection of syllabi, assignments, and reading materials (via pdf) for MIT undergraduate and graduate Foreign Language and Literature studies courses. Among the languages covered are Chinese, Spanish, French, a little Japanese and even German thrown in for good measure- with a little bit of theory and cultural courses as an aside.

Also worth investigating is the parent site which includes a host of other subject course websites: History, IR, engineering, math et al.

Enjoy!

I'd recommend the google version: http://www.google.com/translate_t

It even gives you an Arabic option.

Not sure if this course is on your guys' radar but I think it's GREAT. I've taken three classes with them in Arabic- Modern Standard and am already able to read and write in the language and carry on in casual conversation. Only drawback is that you have to be current military or civilian support with a .gov or .mil e-mail account.

GLOSS is by far the best language resource that I have come across. Some of the clips are actual passages from the DLPT.

FOMNY.COM (Foreign Television)
 
I had an Arabic linguist tell me recently to watch the television programs on this website while I am learning and it will help with the immersion process. I am taking a second semester of Arabic language through American Military University and I have found this to be a big help as I start to recognize different words within the program and can figure out from the video, exactly what they may be talking about.

Hope this helps!

Great sites
 
Hello,
These are great sites. I have also used "Livemocha.com". Aboutfrench.com is helpful to me.

It really helped me having a Native speaker for a girlfriend...LOL

The DLI has some free resources... I went through Korean Basic back in 1990-91. By the time I got out in 96, I was hitting 3, 2+ on the DLPT, but I only got 1+/1+ on the way out the door from DLI.

As a professional linguist, I think diversity is the key to learning a language. Subtitled movies are one way to familiarize oneself with a language. However, if you are capturing 85% or more of the meaning, you probably don't need them. I agree with Brianji that many subtitles are flawed.

Although some methods may be better than others for learning a language, it's the total time, effort and attention that you put into it that counts. Language acquisition experts say that it takes 4-10 years immersed in the target language culture for native-like proficiency. Beware of claims that you can learn a language in 6-10 weeks!

The methods arent necessery new but I think they've done it in a briliant way. Dussins of languages to choose from.
