    i always wonder how anyone learnt languages before the internet? im pretty fluent in german now, though you never stop learning. when i started 3 years ago, i could access german radio, books, news, tv shows, articles, lingq (great site btw) and youtube. i never even had to use a german dictionary, as i had a browser addon so just had to ‘double-click’ on the word to get a definition. i didnt go to a class and im fluent! if you have an internet connection, you can learn a language.

    I found some good teaching material. Google “Ferd’nand”. These are comics without words. First I have the students describe what’s happening and practice structures such as the subjunctive. Then I have them role play the situation. The result has been very good.
