Ich habe gerade Fluenz Deutsch erledigt. Wunderbar. Jetzt fängt die schwierige Arbeit an... ich lerne allein. Vielen Dank Fluenzteam für sieben Monaten Spaß!

I'm wondering what other users have done to expand on Fluenz after level 5. My plan is to read a few books by Brian Smith (ex: German Easy Reader - Super 500 for Beginners), the German Frequency Dictionary by Tschirner and Jones, and a few grammar books I picked up from Amazon. Does this seem like a good plan? Brian Smith's books have mp3s so I can practice my listening skills. I don't really have many options for speaking practice aside from a German cook who lives nearby. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi Meshmess. I don't know where you live, but you can check out Meetup.com, and see if there is a German language group in your area. There is one in my area (Minneapolis, MN) that meets regularly at a German restaurant, but I'm waiting to finish all 5 levels before I attend. I also plan to attend a German language course in Germany, probably in Hamburg. But I haven't made any arrangements for this yet, as they will have a placement test, and I would rather learn the basics at home and focus on pronunciation and conversation skills and more advanced topics in Germany. --Gene

I'm about 2/3 through German 3 and am finding it difficult to keep pronouns straight (masculine/feminine/plural, nominative/accusative/dative, 1st/2nd/3rd person, etc.). Any tricks for keeping these straight aside from memorizing a chart?

Thanks! I recently made a chart and flashcards for the pronouns. Hopefully with time the right words will come more naturally. I've also noticed that when I go with my first instinct it's usually correct. I get into trouble when I second guess myself.

Try using a memory palace. Check out some videos on Youtube on how to do this by searching "Memory Palace Language Learning" and you'll find a ton
