So I’m planning on a trip to Germany in approximately eight months. This will be the first time since I’ve been to that country since I was one (which was almost a decade before the Berlin Wall fell). Does anyone know the best way to take a self-taught crash course in German that doesn’t involve buying silly language tapes?
I tried learning French in school. I hated it. I think the only way to learn another language is to spend time talking with someone who knows the language. Look around, you might find some native German speakers who would be willing to work with you.
I learned French in school and had the opposite experience. Then again, I was born in Quebec and spent some of my formative years there so maybe I had an advantage.My dad is fluent in German, but I’d hate to ring up huge phone bills just practicing on him.
I think the rest of my French class was girls and they didn’t seem to have any trouble. Maybe they were more diligent than I.Long distance can be really cheap these days. VOIP. Free on cell phones. Unless your Dad is overseas. Call him. Give him a chance to show off how smart he is.
