There have already been a few duplicates regarding how to learn German efficiently; however, my question may be a slight variant. (If it's not distinct enough, please let me know and I will delete.)
I attend a university where one of my requirements to graduate is to be able to have a sufficient command of Russian, German, or French to read academic articles; I have opted for German. Since we will be tested on our ability to translate German academic articles, first and foremost my goal is to learn to read. However, the material that I am reading is not daily usage vocabulary, but rather of engineering/physics/mathematics. This has lead me to two questions:
- What is the best way to self-learn to read German?
- Are there any resources, such as an extensive list of English-German translations, of engineering/physics/mathematics terminology? I have been able to find any.
