Dress British Think Yiddish
I have been teaching myself Yiddish, mostly using the sort of brute-force, memorize 1,000 words using smart flashcards techniques offered up by various hacky "hack the language" web gurus. And it's been working surprisingly well. At the end of three months, I could understand between 70 percent and 80 percent of every headline I read in the Yiddish Foreward, and, in general, I am more comfortable with the Yiddish I have learned since I started than I am with the Hebrew I spent 12 years studying.
