study methods

July 02, 2009, 05:07 PM posted in General Discussion

I'm just curious how other people approach these lessons. I know there's a tutorial on how to go about it. I do mostly advanced and upper-intermediate lessons and it takes me a long time to get through them! I definitely don't get through one a day, more like 2 a week! I guess what's slowing me down is I want to make sure I know how to write the words too. I also try to memorize any new vocabulary that comes up in the banter that I don't know (there's often quite a few words). I'm not sure if what I'm doing is the best approach or not so I'm curious about what other people are doing. I do feel like knowing how to write is important...

As I learn more, the amount of material I can study very gradually increases.  My strategy has always been to have a fixed amount of study time and push myself to study as much as I can within that time.  I don't know if that helps, or if it is a more effictive strategy than what other people use, but I make some progress this way.
