I've spent the last week attempting to learn Deutsch. I've been listening to Antennae Bayerne Info Digital and a German live stream television news feed. I've also found some sites with good tutorials.

I should probably wait until I've learned more before I start practicing in the forum here, though. I'm still trying to cover the basic rules, and having trouble with words such as sich, noch, nach, and doch.

Ich Komme aus Amerika. Ich spreche Englisch. Mein Deutsch ist schlect.

I've been practicing the piano for about 1.7 years now and so my primary experience with German is trying to play Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms better than I do now.
