I need to learn German, but I can't study it in a school or so. And my internet connection don't allow me to use online methods. Is there some books, with audio tapes avaible that you would recommend me ? My mother language is French, but a english-to-german method would suits me. Any other tips on how to learn it in fast way would be welcome. I already work with German speaking people but they uses dialects. I do not need to speak nor write it perfectly.

What I already do is listening to the german FM radio anytimes I can.

  • @Math Welcome to the German Language SE. If you want, you can take the tour or take a look at the help center. On a personal note, I'd like to know, if that's OK with you, why you need to learn german, and why you need to learn it fast. Business? Love interest? I'm curious :) Thanks and have a nice day.

  • @hiergiltdiestfu no problem :) I come from Brussels and I recently moved near Germany so everyone here speaks German. I already love that place. I first where thinking 'got whole life to learn German' as ppl here are open-minded but in some month I will be a daddy and I need to be able to help my kidwith home works etc :) Let's say that I have lots of reason, but they all came togheter ! And yes, being able to speak with my coworkers would be nice. I don't want to be the "french one" for ever ;) "Eine andalouse cheeseburger öhne salat bitteschön" ;p

  • @Math thanks and best of luck! Being a dad is wonderful, but the homeworks are a bit off yet, no? :) Anyways, feel free to stick around the site, there's lots to learn, even for the natives. You might also want to take a look at our German Language Chat, where some learners show up from time to time as well, with specific questions too soft for the main site, or just for friendly chatter and live practice.
