    an italian guy, who is learning German and he is presenting a lot of resources on his blog along with some insights into his own learning.

    A blog by an experienced English teacher in Zurich, Switzerland, who offers teaching you while … running :). That’s right. He goes running with him and learn German along the way. I’ve never tried something like that but I imagine that for some it REALLY works. Anyway… on his blog he talks about German in English and covers a vast variety of topics ranging from pure grammar, fixes for the most common mistakes to specific vocabulary for your skiing vacation in Switzerland.

    Hello, do you have any textbook recommendations for people who are self-studying German? Most of the textbooks I have/have seen are designed for class room study and therefore have a lot of group exercises that aren’t applicable to someone who is learning from home. Thank you:)

    • Not really, unfortunately. The only thing I’d recommend is Assimil. It’s a book and CDs (mp3s) and designed for self study.
      I’v enever tried it myself but back when I was still working as a teacher I met several people who had gotten to a pretty good level of German in only 3 or 4 months and the used Assimil. It’s not a fancy new product but it has aged very well, I think.
