I don’t know about online, but I did learn a great deal of Spanish with an audio program – I would put the CD in my car every time I used it and go through the learning sessions. It was a good way to be productive, since it didn’t eat up my free time. Sorry I can’t be more useful, I can’t remember the name of the program… but I wanted to throw the audio learning suggestion in there.

I used http://www.byki.com/ for a while which was a great help, and also kid programs and books.  Sentence structure is simple.  The mistake a lot of adults do when learning a language is to try and analyze why something is like it is, instead of just accepting it as one of life’s facts.  I couldn’t get my head around the fact in Greek that to say “I was going to take a shower” I had to say “I will be making a shower”.  Another is expecting perfection from themselves straight away from when they start to learn a language. 

In your situation, I would ask people you know (local shop keepers etc..) to not speak English to you because you’re trying to learn theri language, if they don’t stop, just reply to them in the language you’re trying to learn, eventually they get the hint and begin to help you along.  Don’t be worried about making mistakes either – it is perfectly fine – your brain will slowly fix things naturally.  What language are you trying to learn?
