Online Language Courses?

    I'd like to brush up on my German. I took it in middle school, so I have some background with it but have forgotten 90% of it. I also have a native speaker I can practice with, but I want to do some work on my own first until I feel more competent.

    Any suggestions for a good resource for this? Google brings up lots of results, but it's hard to judge the quality. Also free would be great!

    I used to learn British English at http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/ but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't sound like Hugh Jackman but i do sound like Kate Winslet instead.

    Can you get it for computers? (The downloads are for phones and tablets.)

    It's browser-based. Just click on "get started", then "create profile".

    For the written part, I would suggesr working with Wikipediacht, or whatever the German Wikipedia version is named.
    Look up some term you are interested in and familiar with, and follow the links. The context will help you understand the rest, and you can pick up new terms.
