I'm teaching a college-level Japanese history course in a prison. The inmates want to learn the language. What are the best online intro courses for casual learners? I know Japanese. My budget is zero, but I can make copies.
I want to teach them conversational patterns they can use and improvise. Something for travelers, rather than serious beginners is what I'm thinking. They won't care about food or manga or anime.
They are smart and motivated. This course for college credit, but the language would be just for fun with the long class starts to drag.
Anyway, I did an Ask Metafilter search for this question, but I did not come up with anything quite right. If I missed something, please direct me to that previous question.
