International television programming, which is available for free on the Internet, is one of the most often-overlooked resources for foreign-language learning. Foreign TV stations created specifically for international audiences are particularly good resources. Say you want to learn Italian. One great station is Italy's RAI Internazionale. Other useful programs for intermediate and advanced learners include TG1, Italy's main television news program, and Gran Sportello Italia (Great Doorway to Italy), which feature the latest information on topics such as business, politics, religion, family, and food.
