As discussed in topic http://theeducationdesk.com/t/be-polyglot-be-cool/52 Spanish can be a choice of a foreign language to start with. It is easy due to commonalities between English and Spanish script.
To learn Spanish resources we found useful are:
Duolingo it is a free language-learning website ( http://www.duolingo.com/ ):
Gamification for learning languages is initiative and motivational.
Mi Vida Loca ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/spanish/mividaloca/ ):
Set of videos set in Spain to help learn simple Spanish. Created by BBC.
There is also FSI ( http://www.fsi-language-courses.org/Content.php?page=Spanish ):
Language courses from the Foreign Service Institute. Site provides mp3 recordings with few more resources.
(We have not used it yet personally.)
