Here is a master list of all of the FREE Spanish learning materials and resources online.

Hey guys,

I put together what I believe is a comprehensive list of all of the free online resources to learn Spanish (DUO is right at the top of course), including video, audio, apps, courses, dictionaries, websites, textbooks ... you name it. The complete list is here: http://gratisglobal.com/learn-spanish-free/

If I missed anything at all, please let me know so I can add it. My criteria are that the resource must be free, useful and high quality. I do include apps and programs with the "freemium model" as long as the free offering is substantial enough.

Hope this is helpful.
Susie

That is a very long and useful list, thank you very much for sharing!

I also like the youtube series Butterfly Spanish. It's short lessons on various topics, i.e. a lesson going through the difference between Tomar and Beber and another talking about pronunciation of various letters. You won't learn the full language just by watching this, but it gives you some tips and insights.

Yes, Ana from Butterfly Spanish is a great teacher and the videos are great for picking up phrases and pronunciation - and suitable for all levels of learners. She also has a free newsletter with interesting cultural notes. And appears to be working on a more structured program for the future.

There are probably hundreds more on the tube, but another I have found useful is WhyNotSpanish, though probably not for the beginner as there is a lot of spoken content. I find it very useful for practicing listening skills, and it has subtitles in English..

Thanks Susie. I'm always looking for these. Do you have Clozemaster in there? I recently discovered it and it's like DL. And there is Busuu too, but only a certain amount of that is free.

You could also take a look at the Royal Acedemia Espanola online dictionary. It's the official body in Spain that 'regulates' the Spanish language. This site is in Spanish, but it's a good go-to guide to clear up any doubts you have over definitions and usage of words.

Awesome, thanks for the great suggestions. I will add the Royal Acedemia Espanola and Clozemaster. I think I remember that the free version of Busuu seemed to be really limited, but I will take a second look for sure.

Great list! Not sure if they count as lessons but señor jordan and the spanish dude youtube channels are really y helpful. Also the youtube channel Aprender Idiomas y Cultura General con Rodrigo has a free Spanish video course.

I personally really like the spanish dude, and I think that he explains concepts well, but I have a native spanish speaking friend who says that his accent is atrocious and wouldn't recommend him.

Fantastic! Thank you Susie for taking the time to put together this list and share it with us. It contains some of my favorites including Language Transfer which helped me understand reflexive verbs and explains conjugation patterns in a way I've never seen.

I'd like to suggest another YouTube series called Extra en Español - a silly story about an American visitor to Spain.
