I'm not familiar with the course but it seems to be well regarded. I can't tell if it's truly free or not but if it is, you could give it a try.
It looks like the levels are from beginning to intermediate. Intermediate in this case is still grade school level I think.
A well-regarded textbook series you could look into is the Genki series. It's comprehensive and often used in universities.
And many people use it for self-study as well.

First thing: learn Hiragana. Watch this video and begin writing these Hiragana:



Put everything else on the back burner while you learn how to write Hiragana from this video. (There are about 50 basic Hiragana.) If you have any questions about reading or writing Hiragana, please feel free to ask them here.

Do not study any other part of the Japanese language until you have mastered Hiragana.

Post a message here when you have learned your first five Hiragana!
