I am having the same issue, but from a different angle. I am only at level one, module 4, but need some advice on how to tackle what is now becoming real french in terms of its use with all the tenses of the verbs, yes, no, never, etc. My problem is that to see the sentence it all makes sense and I can get the verb tense, etc. Hearing it, however, is now a complete disaster - the sentence sounds like one long run on word of which I have little clue of the meaning (can catch a few words). Anyway, is this a common struggle, do you just repeat 100 times if need be and literally memorize (which seems to defeat the idea of understanding basic structure so you can create endless new sentences) or..........? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Merci.
