Cheap access to Transparent Language.
From now until the 15th (I think) of September, there's a bundle over at Humble Bundle containing a bunch of Transparent's courses.

For about $1 (US) you can get three months' access to Korean, Portuguese and Arabic. As somewhere around $12, that goes up to 6 months, and you also get Chinese, German and French. The top tier ($20) moves it all up to a one year subscription, and throws in Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Swahili and Hebrew.

It's a long time since I've looked at Transparent, and I always thought it was very much "meh", but I'm kind of tempted to pay a dollar and then blitz through the Arabic...

Since you are in the UK you might want to check your library. Mine gives free access to all the transparent languages with just my library card login.

The offer is still in place at the link--or it's back. The same page has an offer of a lifetime subscription to Beelinguapp for 40 USD.

Also, the free material from McGraw Hill's audio study player may be available for a limited time. It's offered through a web app that uses Flash, and Adobe keeps sending me messages saying that Flash is only supported through the end of the year, plus asking if I would like to uninstall it now if I'm not using it. https://www.mhlanguagelab.com/

The most useful material I've found is almost two dozen short stories from the Stories from... series (Latin America, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Spain). Each has an introduction in English, followed by a reading by a native speaker of Spanish. The book series contains parallel Spanish/English texts, and the web app has copy-and-pasteable text in both languages, which lends itself to DIY parallel texts. Conveniently, for those who want to squirrel this material away for future use, if you start playing the first track from each book, the player continues through all the subsequent tracks from that book. And if you Select All the text for one story, for copying it, all the text in the next story is automatically selected when the player moves on to it.

To find the Spanish readers, go to the Spanish section and scroll down to "Readers" under "1 Select Category/Artist"

McGraw Hill's description of the overall site is:
More Than 60 Hours of Free Content
Audio Study Player
A convenient and easy way to hear bonus and sample audio content from more than 250 titles, and over 30 languages.. Easy to navigate, the Audio Study Player combines audio and text.

Languages Include:
Arabic * Chinese * English * German * French * Italian * Japanese * Russian * Portuguese * Russian * Spanish

Black Friday is almost here. But in keeping with most U.S. stores spreading their sales over several days this year, Benny Lewis will be posting Black Friday language deals each day starting Monday, Nov. 23rd thru Friday, Nov. 27th. He says they will be in his emails--not sure if he will post them in his blog or not.

If you've been interested in one of his 90-Day Challenge groups, he has a Black Friday package of the challenge and a number of other of his resources for $127.

Busuu has sent me an email saying that I can gift 5 of my closest friends with 30 days of Busuu Premium.

My actual friends don't learn languages, so if anyone wants to try it, send me a message here and I'll give the invitation link to the first 5 people.

I like Busuu--not as a main learning source, but more as an add-on. The little lessons go fast and are kind of fun. And I like the community where people will correct either your audio or writing.

LingQ lifetime premium for $199 per language.

Benny Lewis has his usual collection of deals which are basically affiliate links. Note that some of his deals are actually better than the public deal though. For example, GermanPod101 is 41% off for regular users and 51% off when you use the coupon code from Benny.
