Thankfully, there are a number of altruistic organizations and website owners that create websites simply for the love of the Spanish language, and to help spread the understanding and use of that language around the world.
In this article, you'll discover a total of nine websites for learning Spanish. They vary in size and by the number of free tools that are available. However, the one thing that you'll find in common among all of them is that they offer good quality, useful resources that are absolutely free.
On the surface, Spanicity isn't much to look at. The main site consists of virtually no graphics and all text listing mostly just links to other areas of the website. However, when you start exploring the site, you'll quickly realize just both the volume and the value of the resources that you'll find there.
Spanicity Audio Resources
In particular, you'll find a whole assortment of audio files, with the links placed next to the words or phrases. The text is in both Spanish and English, and all you have to do to hear the spoken Spanish phrase is to click on the "play" button. Hearing the language spoken is one of the fastest ways to learn a new language.
Another excellent site with lots of tools and resources for learning Spanish is 123TeachMe. This website includes fun games, conversational and grammar courses, placement tests and alphabet help, and even a section called "Spanish for Kids".

While the website may not have absolutely everything you need to learn Spanish in one place, it does have enough resources - including Worksheets and access to paid online tutors - that it can be a very valuable tool as part of your overall Spanish studies.
The Learn Language website is about one thing and one thing only - learning how to speak different languages. In the Spanish section, it's much like Spanicity, where the main page consists primarily of links to other sections of the site. However, once you start exploring, you'll realize just how valuable the site is. You'll find a Spanish Dictionary, a blog, a Spanish Forum, and even a game area called "Lingo Dingo" where you can test your wits against the clock by coming up with word translations before the phrase makes it to the top of the screen.
The Lingo Dingo Games
This site is proof that when it comes to sites about learning languages, you will find most of the best resources when you really dig into the site and start exploring.
Free World U is the type of site that you would not expect would have many resources for learning Spanish. It is a website that is dedicated as a "free online pre K-12 accredited school." This is essentially an online school that homeschoolers can use to supplement their materials. Once you click through the site, you will in fact discover a section on learning Spanish.
Spanish Lessons at Free World U
At Free World U, you'll find an "Exploring Languages: Spanish" section in the Tenth Grade curriculum. There, you can view online lessons on numbers, colors, the weather, telling time, and grammar.
One of the few Spanish websites you'll find that actually has a well-designed front page is OnlineFreeSpanish. The title of the site isn't very creative, but just the main page alone shows you just how much you'll get out of the website.

As you can see, there are almost two dozen major areas to explore here, including activities, dialogues, lessons, books, articles, printables and much more. In the activities area, you'll find lots of games that younger children would like to play too.

All of these are valuable resources that can bolster your efforts to learn Spanish.
Another great website that you should add to your language arsenal is Spanish Word-a-Day. This website is a little misleading, because from the main page it looks like its only purpose is to let you sign up to receive one Spanish word explanation every day.

However, the truth is that if you explore the left navigation bar, you'll discover other great resources like a Verb Trainer, Spanish Conversation Classes, and even a section for eBooks.
There are some sites out there that have paid products very well infused with the free resources that it offers. Spanish Daddy is one of those sites. However, if you can avoid clicking on any of the Google Ads, you'll find some great free areas like sports terms, school and office vocabulary and much more.
Learn about Verbs
It also offers plenty of areas where you can go to learn the basics like verbs, nouns and grammar.
One of the best sites on this list is called Que Onda Spanish. This website provides dozens of well-made video tutoring sessions including beginner, grammar, travel, business and much more.
Que Onda Audio Lessons
The volume of videos that are available at this website are very impressive, and the quality of the videos makes this website one of the most valuable bookmarks that you can add to your entire toolbox of language-learning resources.
Aside from just learning how to speak spanish, it's just as important to learn how to read it. One of the best ways to practice that skill is regularly reading Spanish News. Luckily, a site called Spanish Newsbites brings you regularly updated news in Spanish.
Read Spanish News
Reading news every day lets you fully immerse yourself into the world of the Spanish language in a way that is both meaningful and valuable to your daily life. This will keep you motivated to continue practicing your reading skills often.
Because it can be so difficult to find free language resources online, the best solution is to bookmark all of these tools, and then use them collectively as an entire toolset to teach yourself Spanish over time.
