Mine is listening to recordings and watching video lessons. 


Also, what's the most effective for you?

The list doesn't include entire methods, except perhaps one-on-one coaching, so I didn't vote.

I have my own method, which is quite detailed.

Is it possible you meant something like "which of these language learning exercises do you like the most"? The way that it's written made me think that there are 4 ways of learning a language. For example, some people will just listen to audio recordings until they are fluent.

I know this is not possible for everyone, but I personally do like attending classes whenever possible.

That's exactly what I meant, good point. :)


After reading back my original post, I realized that the options seemed limiting.

Classes are a great tool. Another great method is socialising, to jump in at the deep end and find a way to communicate.
