While I strongly believe that learning of Grammar and definitions is a solid groundwork for a foreign language, I also see the necessity to include conversation, book and movie discussion, music appreciation depending on the students field of interest. It also makes it easier to grasp a language once you converse about your other school subjects in the foreign language.
I was born and raised in Germany and think I have a pretty good grasp of German. Since 1986 I have been working in the USA for German/American companies which made me understand and appreciate both languages and cultures.
