I found a very useful web page for those of you learning German or indeed any other language.
It is by an opera singer called Gabriel Wyner. In just a few years, he taught himself to speak German, French and Italian fluently in order to help him in his job. To add to the list, he is also now learning Russian.
Mr Wyner gives simple, no-nonsense advice for normal human beings, something where many formalised language resources compiled by language teachers and ‘experts’ fail.
