Ich wolle Deutsch lernen! My goal now is to be able to read the easiest simplified books I can find (600-1000 words).
I’m trying to do it all on my own, in the less expansive way, but it’s hard! Anyway today I bought a dictionary and as soon as the german cultural center in my city will open, I will suscribe to its library… I hope this will keep me motivated!
Here there are some FREE great sites you could find interesting:
http://www.german-grammar.de/ (in english, very well done, it gives lot of importance to contrastive grammar)
http://www.ex.ac.uk/german/abinitio/index.html (a well done course by Exeter University)
http://webgerman.com/german/webexercises/index.html (interactive german exercises)
http://german.about.com/library/blwort_beg.htm (on http://about.com/, with word of the day, grammar, good links etc.)
