How to start?[edit source]

This really interests me, but I'm not sure how to start. Should I just be bold, find a textbook, make a bunch of subpages, and start working through it? --HappyCamper 22:26, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes, find a text and a good Audio/Visual resource for beginning students. Something like Pimsleur would be great to replace the pronounciation and listening exercise that you would normally receive in school, but obviously theirs is not a free product. Maybe some children's show or other beginning German subject is available for download. If it's too advanced, I think it would be useless.

Above all, you need a teacher or two. That person will decide the scope of the class and its pace, not you. Good luck.

Here is a possible text from wikibooks: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikibooks/en/2/2d/German.pdf

Thanks for the link :-) --HappyCamper 00:27, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Participants[edit source]

Most of the participants have listed their names, not their usernames. How useful are these in these lists? The Jade Knight 08:15, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

I think it's good for people just to express interest. My interpretation is that these people are simply putting themselves on the record to say "I know about Wikiversity, I'm interested in learning German there, and I'll wait eagerly for the resources to spring up!". --HappyCamper 15:47, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
