Besides for that wonderful German Lernen site, there are other resources we discussed to help us learn German.  
 
A few of us have Rosetta Stone for German.  It seems to be a someone low-stress way of learning (although sorta slow).  You can get this for free from the SF Public Library.
 
Pimsleur Instant German Conversation is a way that I've found to quickly learn enough to get by.  I got mine for free from the SF Public Library.
 
Someone found that the Detsche Welle website has a free German Language lesson for beginners.  No one's tried it yet, but me and others said they would try it, and we'll report back:

There's also resources for learning German language on the Goethe Institute website:
http://www.goethe.de/ins/us/saf/lrn/web/enindex.htm
 
http://dict.leo.org
is a nice, free site for translating words between German & English (giving lots of choices for each translation).
 
And, finally, Astera (who started Hackerspaces.org) created this free German language lesson for English speakers:

We also talked about getting some good German language movies with easy enough language to learn through the subtitles.  We can also get the lyrics to some German songs and learn a bit this way.  Maybe some German games, too?
 
We'll be meeting again next Tuesday at 7pm at Noisebridge.
 
Mitch.

In case you haven't seen this German lesson, I highly recommend the 2 mintues it takes to go through them.
 
Mitch.
