My wife wants to learn Spanish. She registered to an online resource where, among other things, she speaks a Spanish sentence in her microphone, it's registered and sent to the site, and someone ( a coach ? ) answers, saying if it's correct or not.
Don't ask me more than that. I might have misunderstood some parts of the program. She was doing it for the first time late last night, and she's not home right now, so I can't check any details with her. And she's not using the same computer as me at home.
I would like to learn German eventually. The reason being that I love the Perry Rhodan series of novels. It's not published in the US. It is in France, and I get access to the books in French anywhere in Quebec.
The thing is, the translation is very very late. The German writers have kept cranking out a 50-page novella weekly since 1961. You read that right, almost 50 years. In French, the rate of translation has been very slow over the years, and so I think they have been translating novellas from the beginning and they are right now at where it was in the German language in the end of the 1970s.
I figured that if I want to be up to date sometime in the ( far ) future, my best bet is to read it in the original language.
So, what would be the best programs to learn another language ?
