Elon.Io is a website that teaches basic Japanese, Turkish, and Spanish writing, vocabulary, and grammar. As you complete each lesson, a checkmark will appear beside it in the table of contents. You can also sign up for a free account to keep track of your progress.
At the top of the table of contents, you will see a notification to review concepts that you previously entered incorrectly in the SRS quizzes. Unfortunately, the review lessons carry into every language. Consequently, if you have reviews leftover from Japanese, you will review them during your Turkish and Spanish studies.
In Japanese and Spanish, the lessons seem to build on one another. For example, you may learn some basic kanji and then use them in the next lesson with a new grammar concept. In Turkish, however, you will have to look at the “exercises” section of the lesson to succeed in the quizzes.
If you click on a word in the vocabulary section, you can listen to a text-to-voice pronunciation, see the word broken down into different components, and sometimes see the word used in context.
Although there seem to be some quality issues, Elon.io seems to provide a decent, free introduction to a new language.
