>>  2) - Very good English/German dictionaries / grammar help

>> http://www.canoo.net/
>>  3) - Word quiz game
>> http://quizlet.com/subject/german/
>>  Lucy had a very good recommendation for beginners; try reading

>>  Once the group gets rolling we talked about getting out of noisebridge

>>  Again, this group is for students of all levels and we should have

>>  My next email will be full Deutsch, promise :)
