is some advice for those of you who would like to
learn some German on your own. It is divided
into two sections:
pages were written assuming you are in Ann Arbor and
have access to the University of Michigan, but most
of this advice could obviously be applied anywhere.
sections contain a wide variety of ideas, and you should
be able to find lots of things to do that you will really
enjoy. Learning a language means rediscovering
the world through the perspective of another language
and culture, and few things could be more fun than that.
If you enjoy yourself, you will stick with it and learn
easily; if you turn it into a chore, you will hate it,
learn much more slowly, and probably eventually give
[=So:] Viel Spaß!!
