For a foreign language, you might find it better to try and attend a local college, especially if it's just going to be one class for two semesters. However, more and more courses are offered in online/distance formats these days, so what you propose is probably quite possible.

Foreign language is best learned in the classroom setting with a good teacher. That said, if you want to just pass the prereques without really caring if you actually learn a foreign language, then maybe you could find an on-line program.

I have a degree in a foreign language, and my dh teaches a couple of different languages. His school district tried to get him to teach an online class, and he refused--he really feels that learning a language for 99% of the population involved face to face, classroom communication. In my experience, I agree. If you want to make the most of your time and money and actually learn a language, go for the classroom. If you just want to fulfll the requirements, you can try online; but if you've never learned a language before, and have no one to practice with or to whom you can go with questions, it might be pretty difficult.

Just my humble opinion.

If you need beginner level foreign language courses, the University of Iowa (http://www.uiowa.edu) has beginner through 4th semester Latin courses through Guided Independent Study. You have 9 months to finish the individual courses. (Federal financial aid is available for these courses.)

They also offer Spanish and German in this format as well, but I think those are 3rd and 4th semester classes, not beginner, but I could be off my rocker.
