Hello everyone, this is my first post here since joining in December. I don't know if this has been talked about before, but I feel I have to put in a good word for the Michel Thomas Method. It is really a great program to work through when you are first starting to learn a language. I finished with the CDs right before I started learning German with Lingq. I was amazed at how much I understood the structure of the language, and it has made going through the lessons really productive and now I feel it is more a matter of vocabulary and exposure. Anyways, thank you Steve and everyone who contributes for Lingq, this is truly a special website and it has gotten me so excited about language learning.
