Edit: another thing I always do when learning a language is to get music in the language if possible. Jupiter Jones for German, lots of Bollywood for Hindi, and now Guillaume Grand for French.



For German, I'm a big fan of Udo Lindenberg. You can usually find the lyrics on the web somewhere if they are not on the CD liner.

For French, if you don't mind (or like) something old fashioned and nostalgic, there's Charles Trenet, or Jaques Brel, and a few more of that ilk that I can't remember.
And no one's shelves should be without some Edith Piaf! :-)

What does everyone think of the Living Language Advanced German Course?

I found it for about 80 dollars and am considering it since I am coming up to the end of Assimil "German with Ease."

I haven't used it yet, but I have the book and think it looks very promising.

I am a big fan of supermemo.net learning platform and theirĀ English and Polish courses - especially those with a tutor. They are cheap, you can try them before buy, they take care for repetitions.

I bought the 'Living Language: German Beyond The Basics' pack (book, dictionary, CDs). I haven't started German yet, but I've gone over the book, and I'm really impressed with it. But that's Living Language for you. They're good! :D

I used the DLI, FSI courses in reverse. Vietnamese to English with good results. Up until 1975 we could take English in school and many did, myself included. For about 15 years that all ended but with the internet and tv plus alot of intrest in learning English; I managed to get pretty good at it. BTW the DLI, FSI courses for Vietnamese from the 60's and 70's use alot of outdated vocabulary. You will still be understood though.

Rosetta Stone is my favorite program. It's fun because you get to look at beautiful pictures while studying your target language. Moreover, it's based on repetition, which is always a good thing.


um...
