It depends on the languages you want to learn. For German I would recommend checking out the Deutsche Welle courses. They're quite good.

r/languagelarning (Reddit) has a very nice list of resources. I do have to mention that it does not have all of the (good) resources for every language on the list, but it's a very good place to start looking.

PS: I have a truly absurd amount of resources for all sorts of languages bookmarked, so just tell me which languages you want to learn (whether they're found on Duolingo or not) and I'll have some resources for it.

Thanks! If you know of a website for Arabic or Russian, it'd be helpful.

Alright, here you go:

Arabic:

Just a note here: I've found that many sites found on the internet that teach Arabic for free are aimed at Muslim students. This can feel a bit uncomfortable for some people, so be aware of that. Also, Arabic has several dialects and there's a significant difference between MSA (Modern Standard Arabic), Classical Arabic and the different dialects. Most people reccomend to learn Egyptian Arabic as it has lots of resources and most Arabic speakers can understand it, or to learn MSA and learn a dialect after that. Anyway, I'll include info about which version(s) is taught.

Russian:

Step one: learn cyrillic, step two: dive into Russian! Most of these resources have plenty of audio material and there are also a couple of comprehensive courses in there.

I hope this helps.

EDIT: Corrected a link.

Here are 2 youtube channels I have been watching. https://www.youtube.com/user/gringoespanol

https://www.youtube.com/user/tontitofrito

Speaktribe Spanish has quite a few free lessons. Tandem is a messenger app for language learners that is very cool. You can filter it by country. You can correct each others errors in the messenger box and it supports video messaging.

I very recently discovered Flash Academy. The word games are just the best as I'm better at reading and writing but struggle to recall under pressure when I am speaking or when I am listening to someone speaking. Some of these games make you think really fast. However, only the first three lessons were free, you have to subscribe after this so I gave up as I don't have the funds. However, if anyone has tried it and knows where I can get similar quick thinking games I would be eternally grateful.

For Japanese I strongly recommend the following:

  1. JapaneseAmmo with Misa-sensei: http://www.japaneseammo.com/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBSyd8tXJoEJKIXfrwkPdbA

  2. Memrise official Japanese course (3-part course), start here with Japanese 1: https://www.memrise.com/course/1389171/japanese-1/

  3. Tae Kim's Guide to Japanese: http://www.guidetojapanese.org/learn/ ...which has been converted to a Memrise course for your convenience: https://www.memrise.com/course/62166/a-guide-to-japanese-grammar-tae-kim/

No audio for the Memrise course unfortunately, which is why I recommend starting out with 1. and 2. in order to hear the sounds of the language. You can always start it later.

For Chinese, I recommend Ninchanese (mostly free, but with some paid modules), HelloChinese or ChineseSkill.

For plenty of other languages, there are free audio courses over at http://www.languagetransfer.org/ to get you started.
