I really want to start learning German again. I took German for GCSE and also took a class last year in uni along with my engineering modules. It was fun to have something different to work on instead of constantly doing maths but I’m not studying German this year as I wanted to take thermodynamics instead. Before I can teach myself anything I need to find a course. So far, the best one I’ve found is the Rosetta Stone language course. You get a CD which helps you learn your chosen language by recreating the way you learnt your first language – immersion in the language. There is also voice recognition technology to help with your pronunciation which looks good as I was never really able to get the accent right! Hopefully I’ll get round to getting the CD soon so I can start my New Year’s resolution!
