By this I mean, if you know one, or a third language for that matter, what actual way did you use to learn it? How did it work? I'm terrible at learning languages and some advice would be nice. I'm trying to learn German, and my method is so far to read a book, learning words I don't know until I know enough that I can read without a translator. But memorising so many words is damned hard. So yeah this is basically an advice thread.
