comment Is 30-60 minutes per day enough to get fluent in eight months?
Fluent for me means that I can have a conversation in a social setting, read the paper, go shopping, read menus in restaurants, talk to people ask for directions ... etc watch German TV and programming. Being able to write German would be great but not essential for my needs in the short run.

Did you try watching German TV does it help for understanding native German's speaking at their normal speed. I have tried watching a bit of news from zdf.de could not make much as my vocabulary is not very big right now. Is the German on the news spoken slowly relative to everyday speech? I do have a several native German Speakers I can practice with before my trip.
