How Best to Reinforce Previous Lessons

Āilǐkè

I find that as proceed through lessons, I feel like I start to forget vocabulary I learned in previous lessons.  Is there a recommended systematic approach for continuously reinforcing the items learned from previous lessons?  Thank you!

Ailike, I have been working seriously on the Mandarin for the last four years and find RC is excellent for reinforcing previously studied content.  However, it requires that I continuously reiterate early lessons.  RC acts as my very patient tutor and repeats the lessons while my brain builds and strengthens the neural networks.  I recommend using RC to expose yourself to the language on a daily basis and at different times of the day.  Good luck.

Thank you Nóng Fū!  I barely find time to advance in the lessons so going back can sometimes be hard.
When you go back, do you redo the entire lesson or just the exercises?

Xièxie!

I always pick and choose what is most interesting to me.  Oftentimes, I multitask with a YouTube video or Netflix while working the RC.

What is the RC?
I've been having some of the same problems as Ailike, but I don't know what the RC is. 
So what is it?

谢谢!

Oh! 
I don't see how I didn't figure that out.
