Hi, beginner here just starting out with rocket german... just wondering if anyone has any tips for the best way to work through the course? I've been listening to the audio conversations (a few times each) and practicing the pronunciation regularly after each lesson. But what other ways do you practice between lessons? Do you write down vocab? How quickly do you move through the lessons and how regularly do you go back and revise? What does your revision actually involve? Do you work through the grammar lessons at the same pace as the audio lessons (i.e. finish 1.9 before moving on to 2.1) or do you treat them separately? Any advice is welcome... i'd like to do this as efficiently as possible :) Thanks
best way to work through the course?

I basically move on to the next lesson once the conversation seems easy to me. I listen to each lesson several times until I can process it without much thought. Then I move to the next one. I'll occasionally go back and listen to previous conversations to make sure I still remember everything.

Hi Lachlan O, Sorry for the late reply. We recommend each student to listen to the Interactive Audio Course lessons at least 3 times and then move on to the next one. Once you have gone through the first 3-4 audio lessons you can work through the grammar notes. When you are comfortable with the language, try using the MegaGames software to solidify your learning and get more practice. As you work through the course, try doing a few Survival Kit lessons - these are not in any particular order however they contain bonus lessons with important vocabulary that you will find useful throughout the course.

I usually alternate 1 or 2 audio lessons with 1 grammar lesson. I usually go over the same lesson twice, then I move the next one and finally I go back to the previous one. Sometimes I go back randomly to be sure I am still familiar with the older lesson. For me, spending 45 minutes every day is the ideal amount of time. Unfortunately I have to skip lessons frequently due to my job; actually, as soon as I resume the course, I try to spend 45 minutes a day. Fabio

Hi Renan, I play all of the recordings in the practice tab several times and if there are I words that I don't know, I look them up and put them in the Vocabulary builder even though the translations are provided. I find this helpful for two reasons: one it helps to learn the vocabulary and two, there are generally several meanings for a word depending on context. I always keep a browser tab with a translator open, Google is my favorite, but there are many others. I find it quicker than using my German-English dictionary. After I've gone through the practice, I do the Hear It/ Say Section as many times as necessary to get at least a "Pretty good" rating on all the phrases. Then, I do the same thing for Know It. I'm pretty sure most of us have to do it several times to get it right. I certainly do. I don't know where you are in your lessons, but possibly you are at a point where you have to go back and review before you can move forward again. I found that was the case for me.
