New and wanting learning strategies from others.
I just ordered French 1-5 today and I am very excited to get started. However, from all my research on the internet I have not been able to pin-down a few things since reviews seem to keep what I am after more general or not even touched on.
My idea for using the program is to do one lesson in the morning when all is quiet and I am alone (well, the wife is sleeping). Then repeat that same lesson in the evening with a drill session in the middle of the day from the lesson that I am on.
Then, the next day, repeat the previous day, lesson in the morning, drill in the middle of the day, then repeat the lesson again in the evening.
This would give me four repeats of each lesson over two days with then each level taking approximately two months, or ten months to complete the whole program.
I also plan to pad my listening skills with Netflix shows and movies since many of them have not only multiple languages that you can watch a familiar movie in but also the appropriate subtitles. Even if you are into action style Marvel Universe TV series, such as Jessica Jones or Luke Cage, they have those in 5 different languages!
With all that word salad out of the way, last question - is it intent to have high comprehension for each lesson before moving on, or are you supposed to progress through it on a regular schedule and not worry about pieces that you don't remember? I assume with the way that the program appears to be laid out that it is always reaching back to old skills as refreshers while giving you new skills.
Any help, tips, or guidance is most appreciated!
