Skapago is a small company with online tutors, a YouTube channel, and books for language learning. The books are different from most language courses because they engage the reader in a mystery novel while teaching the language, vocabulary and grammar.

Specific Languages

Easy Croatian
Simple and easy introduction to the Croatian language for casual learners. Very useful for Bosnian and Serbian as well.

FinnishPod101 provides a language course, podcast and accompanying website that offers lessons in Finnish. It is primarily audio but there is some video too. Each video comes with a PDF transcript and additional vocabulary.

Comme une Française
Comme une Française is a blog and video channel run by the engaging Géraldine Lepère. Géraldine teaches French the way it is really spoken in France through a range of courses run by herself, interesting and charming videos on the language and culture, and emailed content all designed to have you “sound French, even to the French”.
Free website with a Tagalog dictionary, video and text lessons, free flashcards, cultural notes, blog articles, slang, and Taglish. New content added weekly.
