I did not mean it badly – on the other hand I have a natural mistrust into special tools and methods which can help you with learning the foreign language.
We have a saying that for learning a foreign language you need a ‘heavy bottom’ – meaning you need to spend if possible one hour a day regularly studying for really long time. Simultaneously then trying to use what you learned as much as possible.
Several years later, depending on your talent and difficulty of learning language for you, you shall see the positive result. No shortcuts existing.
May be I was confused by the fact that all these recommended tools and methods with one exception only were about computer/phone related things.
One would almost say that the people 50 years ago could not learn a foreign language efficiently 🙂
