Igbo? Lingala? Amharic?

So, we (the Library we, that is) have several ways to help you learn another language: books, tapes, CDs and the Mango online courses. That's cool for common languages like Greek or Portuguese or Arabic, but what about Kituba, Yoruba or Bulgarian? Tagalog, Twi or Sinhala? Well, you're in luck. It turns out that the US Foreign Services Institute language courses are available and brought to you for free by a non-profit, online.The courses consist of a series of tapes and a separate text. Expect nothing fancy here (the texts are scanned from the original typewritten versions), but you can't beat the price! (Thanks to ResearchBuzz for the tip.)
