Chatterbug

Online language program that combines computer lessons and live tutor sessions. The lessons and tutor sessions are tailored to each student so they get efficient practice and progress quickly. The price is higher than strictly online programs, but considering the cost of individual tutoring, still pretty reasonable.

Radio Lingua

An online language learning program with complete courses in French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Chinese. There are also introductory materials in several other languages. The program includes video and audio lessons and lesson notes in pdf form. You can access the audio lessons for free on iTunes or Spotify, and there are sample lessons available to try out the program.

Rocket Langauges

Language learning program with audio lessons, reinforcement activities, voice recognition, and grammar and culture lessons. This looks like a very thorough and affordable curriculum. The only thing lacking (compared to most other online language programs) is the photos, so visual learners may have difficulty.

Powerspeak

An online language learning system. Courses in French, Spanish, Chinese, German, and Latin for grades 3 through 12. You can choose independent study, or pay extra for teacher support.

Learnables

Affordable foreign language curriculum that begins with listening/comprehension, then moves on to reading and writing. Not a huge selection of languages, but a good solid program.
