100+ Free University Courses to Learn a New Language

Learn Spanish, Italian, English, Chinese, Korean, and other languages from these free online courses.

There are many language learning apps out there, but MOOCs can do one thing that these apps aren’t doing or can’t do — Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) can teach you about the culture of the parent country.

To get a sense of what I’m talking about, take a look at the intro video for edX’s Mandarin Chinese for Business course.

You can learn Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, and other languages from these free university online courses. Class Central has created a collection of 100+ such MOOCs that teach over 7 different languages.

We particularly recommend FutureLearn’s Introduction to Dutch and edX’s Tsinghua Chinese: Start Talking with 1.3 Billion People. Both these courses are highly rated and are part of Class Central’s The Best Online Courses of All-Time list.

And if you want to learn English, you can find plenty of resources and courses on How to Learn English Online.
