Foreign Language Links

These lists are hardly exhaustive! Take on the internet on your own and you will discover dozens of sites related to foreign cultures that interest you. Clicking on a link will open the site in a new window: just close it to return to the LTC website. When you find a site you enjoy, bookmark it! Under the lists relating to each of UMM's Major languages, you'll find other great FLinks, including Prof. Viktor Berberi's favorite Italian links!
