4. Sites to learn languages.
There are many sites to learn many languages. Some of them
show a basic level, and then try to sell an advanced level. You
don't need to spend hundred of dollars online, or buying CDs
or DVDs. Some sites are a little slow, some teach a very basic
To learn a language you need to know some vocabulary and
some grammar. You don't need to know the whole grammar
and a vast vocabulary to reach fluency. After you reach fluency
you can add vocabulary and improve your grammar knowledge
... as you did with your native language ... Remember:
Some sites allow anybody to add learning material. These could
be sentences or audio files. Some of these sentences could be
very wrong. I heard many sound files with terrible pronunciation.
Most 4-year-young children, are fluent in their native languages,
any language, knowing only a small vocabulary, and
even knowing the meaning of the word "grammar".
After you reach a basic level, try to listen, watch movies, read,
in the new language. If you don't understand doesn't matter.
Repetition helps. Don't spend too much time with dictionaries.

5. Some resources to learn Esperanto
The easiest language to learn is Esperanto.
You can start using it after 20 - 40 hours of learning. Of course,
you will need practice time to get some fluency. But that will
be much less than with any other language.
Then, using Esperanto, you may contact people in any
country of your interest. Talking with these people, it will be
easier to choose your next language. These people will be
very happy to help you learn their languages. Some of them
will invite you to stay a few days with them, if you visit their
country. Knowing Esperanto will make a little easier to learn
