A great way of learning Spanish without paying anything is to do a language exchange. This means that you "exchange language" with another person. You teach them a language you know and vice versa. On the two websites listed below you can find a person to learn Spanish or Catalan from.

The first one only has people in Barcelona while the second one has people from all counties.
