Utter newbie to the languages forum, so 'hi!'
Anyway, I'm looking to teach myself languages, mainly for the lulz and also because I was a stubborn git when I was year 9 and entirely refused to do a GCSE in a language. I've got no immediate plans to get a qualification in any language, I'm just doing it for the fun of it.
I've decided to start with fairly 'common' languages (as opposed to something that not many people speak) and was wondering how anyone around here went about teaching themselves new languages - assuming there's at least a few people here who will have done so I've had a few goes in the past with books etc. but not get particularly far - so any tips anyone has would be welcomed
What do you wish you'd been taught?
