I am trying to learn languages like French, German, Italian and others with the help of dictionaries and books from the English school that I went in the past. I think I have books starting from the level of a junior up to proficiency. What I do is this: I try to learn whatever is in those books in the language I am aiming. For example, if it is German, I try to take the first page of the book and try to translate with the help of the dictionary to German. After I finish with the first page I move to the next and after that to the next and so on.
Will my way of learning languages have good results with or without giving exams to get a degree or certificate in those languages?
