I would consider uim, langdrill, gjiten, kanatest, dict and ispell to be "foreign language software". If that's not what you mean, what do you mean? What task is it you want to perform?

take a look at JLearnIT. Otherwise, I don't know. There are of course freedict dictionaries for those languages, but no tutorial material that I know a lot about.

Which languages do you want to learn? French, Italian and German plus more? Exactly what problem are you trying to solve?

I'm out of ideas, then. Google might be able to help you.
