The BBC has plenty to choose from if you find yourself in the market for a new language. Their main language site is here; basic Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and even Greek are there for the taking, as are smatterings of other languages (lots of sound files too, so no need to wonder about pronunciation). Best of all, they are able to offer some languages from closer to home (closer to home for the BBC, that is.) My favorite, at the moment is Beag air Bheag, an introductory Gaelic course. There is a similar offering for Irish, and Catchphrase for Welsh.
