Trying to learn a language by yourself is a weird, if interesting, experience. And I made it even weirder for myself by using a Pimsleur course, which is obviously English-based, for my getting at German. But (a) I like Pimsleur, mostly, and (b) it's interesting comparing English and German (now, Pimsleur Ukrainian - that was a bit too weird).

The only problem is, I am too much a visual learner for Pimsleur to be enough for me. For now - in the middle of German I - it's enough for me to try looking new words up in online dictionaries, but. I'm in a boring place right now: I got a bunch of new words and expressions and some basic conversation models, and it was interesting, but now these models have to be trained in all their variations. And it's kind of, well, boring - necessary, of course, but I already want something more. And, of course, my knowledge isn't yet enough for reading even newspaper articles *sighs and tries to hold on*
