(Update: The list is growing thanks to readers’ input, so there are more than 30 now.)
I recently posted a list linking to hundreds of free language courses. I think it’s vital to look for free language instruction since a) so much of it is available and b) most people only have limited money to spend on materials.
So in that spirit, here are more free resources: YouTube channels with language instruction.
I tried to limit the list to channels that provide actual instruction. The two videos on my channel, for example, only have me chatting in foreign languages and speaking generally about language learning and my own progress, so my channel doesn’t qualify.
I also tried as much as possible to find channels that were independently owned and maintained. There’s a lot of great, slick YouTube videos published by corporations. But YouTube is unique in that it provides a place where individuals with good things to offer can easily produce their own content.
Easy Languages – German, Spanish, Arabic, Croatian, English, Thai, Afrikaans, French, Dutch, Filipino
Innovative Language Learning – (Too many languages to list)
Travel Linguist – (Too many languages to list)
Nathaniel Dick – Khmer, Chinese
Professor Jason – Spanish and Portuguese
Extras (va Diabl2v) – German and French episodes on this channel (with more episodes/languages scattered throughout YouTube)
Any YouTube channels I missed? Let me know about them in the comments.
