If yes, how was your experience? I am not talking about only free courses.

These sites offering various courses (free and paid) have exploded in numbers in recent years, I am thinking about subscribing to few of those.

To clarify I am talking about sites like :

http://courses.edx.org/

http://udacity.com/

http://coursera.org/

http://udemy.com/

http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm

http://online.stanford.edu/courses

etc

Duolingo has a section where you can try and translate real world articles from spanish (this is how duolingo makes money), there are other sites where you can send messages to a native language speaker trying to learn your language and you correct each other. Theres another site that sets up essentially skype calls with someone trying to learn your language.
