Galician is too obscure to be taught on the mainstream language learning sites, like rosetta stone, livemocha, or busuu, but there are still resources out there. Only about 3 million people speak it! My host mom has been really helpful in sending me some links.
My host mom is a writer and journalist in Galician. This is the book trailer for her fantasy trilogy! Someday I hope I can read her books.

I like this guy's Galician videos :)
and a few websites, just one the off chance you are reading this and want to learn some Galician:
This Site isn't language learning, just a general site about galicia, but I figured if you are bothering to look at these you will be interested in that too! This One is from the Galician government, the Xunta, and they have some good resources. This is an awesome interactive dictionary from my host mom. You can learn some important basic conversation skills Here. and Here is one that has lots of activities and grammar and stuff (like the ones I took screenshots of and posted). It seems to work better on internet explorer, for some reason. This has great verb conjugations, Here is more grammar, and there's more verbs Here. There are some more youtube channels for learning Galican Here and Here (the second one is harder because she doesn't teach speaking English). This has nice introduction stuff.
I've learned even more about Galicia but I want to save a few things to post about when I'm there. I cannot wait to be able to write from personal experience soon. :)
I have some actual news as well, but this post is already long and cluttered so I'll put the updates in a different post.
