As a general rule, studying and speaking German together with native German speakers can be enhanced when you have a convenient English-German dictionary in tow. This way, you’d know that you wouldn’t run out of words the moment you speak it, a handy dictionary can help you a lot in selecting and using the German word whichever situation you’re in at the moment.

But don’t rest your luck on just handy dictionaries. They aren’t going to save your neck all the time.

People who have acquired to learn a foreign language as their second have been exposed to local German speakers for a number of years with continuous studies in grammar and vocabulary. Doesn’t sound easy, don’t it?
