Hi! I have recently taken an interest in learning German. I have watched many of your videos, but I’m still unsure where to officially START. I am a beginner and have not began learning yet because I do not want to start learning the wrong way. What I want to know, for now, is what should be my FIRST step? Should I look for a language learning application on my phone, should I buy a book, should I listen to lectures or stories through my phone, etc.? I have recently installed the app "Duolingo", but, like I said before, I do not want to START in the wrong place. I have enjoyed watching your videos and I am truly inspired by what you are doing. Any answer would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Dude you are great and you reamind me of the word STFU
Really like your channel. BTW in my case, I started learning Spanish from scratch using Fluenz. It gave me a good base. The rest of my learning happened essentially by listening and watching, just like you preach, stuff that is interesting to me.
