Foreign Service Institute Language Programs Online
Hey Duolingo Community check out the following link: http://fsi-language-courses.org/Content.php
This will take you to an online database where you can choose from a multitude of language programs that the Foreign Service Institute has made available to the public. I think Duolingo + FSI course is a great way to make progress in a language. I hope this helps!
Yup, i went right away to that section... there is rly plenty of things to do.... i see you started French!! But my french is not just through Duo. Ive bought 2 books from France and another one from a University in Brazil. I finished them all. So, duo is when i have free time. It will be better when i get the android app. And i read many articles in French, listen to many things... now its about the time to have some private lessons to keep it up... but i havent finished my tree yet... and there are also many languages on the site, but i havent see about portuguese.. Bons estudos para ti. Te vejo por aí.... hasta luego... à plus
I'm sure the courses are great, but I couldn't help LOLing at the audio in the one in my language (Swedish). It must have been made in the 60s, and boy do people sound different today! - Don't make that stop you though, if you learn from a course like that you'll easily pick up more modern language later anyway.
Yeah, haha, it is definitely dated as is the method used in the course (audio lingual) it's really just a decent and free resource that Duolingo users can use to supplement their studies here. I find it amazing that if you are smart you can use the internet to score a pretty solid foreign language education for free. Enjoy :)
Well, it is in the public domain now. A while back they took down the site, but I am glad to see it is back up. These courses were used by the government to teach people back in the day. The language structures could not have evolved all that much, but vocabulary has with the advent of technology new hip words. They sell it on Amazon in a nice new packaging for money!
