What kind(s) of resources have you found on the web?

For Italian I found cyberitalian.com. I am not doing any of their courses right now, but I do receive a newsletter and it's nice to read a bit in Italian and do the odd exercise. If you have an iPod or a smartphone, there's a podcast that you can find and download from iTunes called Radio Arlecchino by the University of Texas at Austin. It's both in English and Italian, rather irregular in its broadcasting schedule but it's a good refresher. You can also find it here: http://tltc.la.utexas.edu/ra/sitemap.php
