    I'm studying Korean and German in my spare time, but are there any tips that you can give me?
    Like staying organized, pronunciation (especially German), or websites and apps. Anything really.

    or if you have questions for me, that's fine but i don't have much to share atm

    For Korean, i had notebooks filled with notes, and did constant flash cards
    I used youtube videos to learn the Hangeul itself and then used http://talktomeinkorean.com/ for learning basic phrases. After that i watched alot of kdramas without subs, just random videos of my favs without subs and tried to pick up on key terms, i wrote down EVERYYYTHING.

    Not for Korean, its incredibly innacurate. The korean "speakers" who gave information for the app are mediocre speakers and not full fledged speakers.

    Same, my hands hurt so much!
    And thanks, people have talked about that site so I'v been meaning to check it out!

    Duolingo isn't accurate for most languages besides Spanish, French and a few others. I downloaded it in hopes of it helping, but I could tell it was inaccurate from what I already learned.

    Honestly just using the language is the best way to learn it. I'd start by learning the alphabet and the basics and just go make new friends who know the language and go from there. Use what you know already and when words or phrases you don't know come up, don't be afraid to ask for help or look them up.

    I'd be happy to help you with learning German. I'm actually working as a German teacher right now, and from what I observed it's most important to really stick to the basics in the beginning. Don't try to use fancy grammar in the beginning but focus on the structure of sentences as well as the right forms.

    For Korean I don't have many tips, just that for me it was very helpful to write a diary every other day and then give it to a Korean friend to point out mistakes.
