@ilpianista good luck !
I'm looking at resources to learn German, thanks!
@ilpianista I'm a native German speaker so I don't know the resources, but what helped me when learning English was to read children and young adult's books. Wenn man nicht jedes Wort nachschlagen muss bleibt die Motivation zum Weiterlesen erhalten. Probiere mal Michael Ende, zum Beispiel "Momo" oder "Die Unendliche Geschichte". Ich bin ein grosser [Swiss spelling for "großer"] Fan davon. Beides ist auch für Erwachsene interessant. Die Geschichten haben eine zweite (philosophische) Ebene.
Thanks, after the courses I'll try to read books indeed! I'm not ready to understand the German part yet :-)
Yup, I already use that ;-)
@ilpianista The German Duolingo seems to be useful (disclaimer: haven't tried German myself, only Italian and Spanish)
I'll give it a try, thanks!
@ilpianista I heard a recommendation for Forever Fluent. I read the reviews, and it seems good. It has a collection of updated research papers that the author used according to the reviews.
From the research that I read, the most important thing is to have constant exposure. Your brain makes the grammar that way.
Other helpful tools are anki, follow target language magazines on twitter, and try tweeting in German. Good luck :)
