This is a truly amazing idea.  

Check out this video about the massive-scale online collaboration that we all (unknowingly) participate in and see how (in the near future) you may be able to learn a new language for free.

    I loved this TED talk. Its amazing that we have been secretly helping computers read books through our verification codes. As for learning a new language, well I’ve been waiting for a good free program to use as I won’t spend any money or pay for classes when it comes to learning new phrases and words of other languages and it appears that this may answer my search.
