Can someone point me to an easy resource that teaches the German language?

Keep in mind that I'm totally ignorant in German. I'm not looking for a dictionary as I don't know anything in German yet.

Do you think german for dummies/idiots is a good book for learning the basics? –  NeedTolearnGerman Nov 28 '12 at 14:11
    
I didn't read it, but I guess, that it wouldn't be a too bad start. –  looper Nov 28 '12 at 14:16
    
I want to be fluent in German .I've got a job opportunity at a german hospital and they require fluency in german. –  NeedTolearnGerman Nov 28 '12 at 14:41

on an unrelated note: fluency takes time. everyone wants to be fluent. If you want it fast you had better sit down and start studying with good resources rather than easy ones. –  Emanuel Nov 28 '12 at 19:18

It depends on how quick (okay, you said it already: quick) and how good you want to learn. Not to forget how you want to learn in general.

I've heard that Livemocha and Babbel are very good for learning online. However, if you have the time and the possibility, just grab someone who can talk German and just talk with him. Also watch German movies/listen to something in German, that really helps. (I learned French that way :))
