Learn a language online

Why not pick up a new skill while job-hunting that might add to your "marketability" to a potential employer? Kim Komando shares a number of places where one can learn a new language online:

"Flash cards are one of the most popular ways to learn a language. With Byki, you can download flash cards in any language to build your vocabulary."

"Flash cards are great, but most language teachers will say that you won't really understand a language without speaking it. Live Mocha is a social networking site built around that theory - you can chat with users in any language!"

"If you want to study the language before jumping into speaking, check out FSI Learning Courses. The government developed these lessons to train foreign officials."

"Digital Dialects has dozens of activities to sharpen your speaking skills, if you have a microphone. They're a bit repetitive, but they should be more than enough to build effective conversation skills.

It you want to go deeper into the language, try Babbel. It's one of the most in-depth language programs out there, but it might be too much for beginners. If you plan to be in the country for a while, the $8.95 a month could be worth it."
