Hey guys :)

I've been learning German for little over a year, and I have come a long way. I'm not fluent, but I can express myself with ease and understand quite a lot. I decided to write an ebook on methods that I used to learn German , which could be used for any language, and also included links to some of the resources I used.

I want to hear your feedback about it :)

Here is the Scribd document:

Pretty cool, but the links do not work and, when I try to copy-paste them, this comes up instead:

I find this highly interesting as I've been thinking about doing the same thing.

I was able to read it yesterday. Actually, it looks like a good plan of attack for any language; just some of the links are to German media. I look forward to checking them out. Thanks for sharing it!

Thank you for sharing your ideas.

Here are two suggestions:

  • Please change "Langsam gesprochene" to "Langsam gesprochene Nachrichten".
  • While I see the advantages of trying to link one's target language to the translation, I'd really mention the possibilities offered by LWT to analyse any lyrics (at least in as a kind of second step). LWT makes looking up unknown words and getting a precise understanding incredibly convenient.  (BTW, you can also use google translate for whole sentences within LWT as a kind of last resort)

And thank you for demonstrating that German music has more to offer than Rammstein. ;) I might add some suggestions later.
