    Glad you learn german. One of the important languages on earth
    I live now for over 10 years in the US and even though i had previous
    school english it took me quite a while before i got more fluently in
    understanding the talk.
    My experience is, that you learn best if you get confronted with the
    language on a daily base. Very useful is reading, speaking and writing
    anything that comes new to you.
    Subtitle are never 1:1 translations and capture the meaning of whatever
    is spoken, but don't give a 100% translation. I think transcripts of a
    show or any media is a better way since it is 100% the content.
    But i wasn't able to find any german transcripts.


    using some computer with some OS which has a cute picture of a
    gecko on front of it.
