Have you tried to study online a foreign language?
Is it easy or not?
I am interested in learning german.
Suggestions are welcomed.
I haven't even tried learning a language online, but I just though I'd comment on the fact that German is a hard language to learn. Lol, my brother took it in college and he said it was pretty hard.
It'd probably be a good thing to start learning it online though, I'd imagine it could be easier.
It depends on if your saying is it easy to learn German online or is it easy to learn online.
In my opinion, i think it's pretty hard to study online especially you are learning language. To learn language, you need to keep practicing with your friend or with your teacher so that you can improve your oral skills. It's really tough to earn any skills when you are learning without people's interaction. You will learn better in this way.
I have a hard time studying anything online. Reading something that isn't extremely interesting to me on a computer screen gets tiresome very fast. Not only that, there are so many other distractions that are easily available online. IMO, if you have the dedication to be able to study online then go for it, but it would never work for me.
Although the Internet is a good resource when learning language is concerned. But that, especially for languages, cannot replace in-person instructions. Because language, unlike other things, need to be spoken and listened to, and even if there are audio files, they are in no ways enough to study a language. In my case, I did look up a bit of vocab and grammar information for Japanese before I got formal instructions on it. And while I did learn from the Internet, I soon found it to be insufficient, because nothing is better than a native speaker of the language talking to you and telling you the minor differences that the web fails to mention. (Well, aside from living in the country that speaks that language of course).
that german one is pretty helpfull.
Thanks!!! Do you know any for spanish? hahah
I've tried Danish, but it is very hard because of the pronounciation. The sentences I had to speak were realy tough
studying online is distracting i would say. I mean, it's a good utility for the internet to be there; but how much focus is on the internet rag mags, news, games, ect than the work that you're supposed to study for? I learned the hard way; best to turn the computer off and do you work than have it on. But then again, i'm hypocritical. I always have it on hahah.
