Learning German

Inspired by folks like Derek Sivers and my roommate who picked up Chinese on their own, I decided to teach myself a new language just to see how hard it would be. I found this app called duolingo that is pretty cool. It has a mixture of dictation, translation, pronunciation and slowly mixes in grammar, spelling and vocabulary. I've been using it for a few days now and I can already say it is much more effective that reading or listening to a book. It's interactive, there's funny/fun bonuses that you can earn like pickup lines and idioms, it reminds me to study, it's really making learning fun and easy! I wish it had mandarin but it doesn't yet. Maybe I'll try to blog in German next time :)
