Good idea for a thread!

I'm going to try to start teaching my boys (6 and 9) German tomorrow – and warum nicht?! – when I take over teaching duties on the days when my wife goes to work. This series looks fun.

Anyone know of anything better? It might be a little too grown-up, not sure, we'll have to see. One technique might be to make it hyper-kompetitif, ja, as they respond well to that. Rewards include extra frankfurters at lunch, some really focused coaching on the Klinsmann dive and any other stupid stereotypes I come up with.

Facebook to pair up with a German family learning English so both sides can practice with native speakers.

We have German friends of that age, but not Facebook. Maybe Skype?

Duolingo is really good for drilling a lot of basics. Plus it has a points/leaderboard system for driving the competitive streak.

Ask your kids, they'll be more up to date on what's the current video chat app of choice!

For adults and older teens, it could be a good time to try a MOOC (Massively Online Open Course). 

This gives some background and details of providers:

The main UK provider is FutureLearn - here's their web page. It gives an idea of the (massive) range of subjects you can learn:
