Dear Christine and All,
As I am German that is not quite the right question for me -
but if you ask how do I controll my translations I can tell
you the following link http://dict.leo.org/
Of course, I knew that you wouldn't have any interest on this topic
as a 'pupil', however I could use a few good teachers.. What about you ??
OK, folks, I had the crazy idea of a German school and didn't know that the
that great.. I have received many, many replies and everyone seems to be
how we continue... including me...

Well, the next better thing would be to go to a real School where you can

language courses on
the internet, but they all bore you with things like..Nominativ &
Akkusativ.. etc.. but that's
no way to learn a language..
Sorry, but I better stop talking and get into action..
In order to get started, I had to go into 'new territory' and as far as I
know this hasn't
been done before.The first step is a 'talking dictionary'.

display letters, etc. and then
