I really think this is a personal decision that each student has to figure out for him or herself. As for me, I have changed my methodology several times in the year that I have been studying. What ended up seeming most efficient for me is to study an audio lesson, and incorporate the section of the beginner's book and/or language and culture lesson that deals with the same subject. Of course, not all of them have parallel subjects, but when they do, they seem to reinforce each other in my mind. Also, now that I am in the Premium Plus course the audio and language/culture lessons seem more aligned, which I like a lot. One other thing that I have found helpful is to use the Scriptorium Technique found in the My Toolbox section. What I did was to go back to lesson 1 in the Premium course and begin writing out the sentences and phrases in the testing sections as suggested in the technique. It has reinforced some grammar and vocab I may have forgotten, and I am amazed at how much more sense some of the grammer and verb conjugations that confused me first time through is making now. I may actually be learning this language!

At the beginning, I was just doing the lessons and just try the different testing types. After finishing the premium and started the Premium Plus, I realized I need to review the Premium again. This time, I placed a lot of time memorizing the conversation scripts and the Play it testing section. I also started writing the lessons in a notebook especially the more difficult words, phrases and sentences and pay more attention to the accents and conjugation. My husband just ordered me a fiction book in Spanish from Amazon and I am looking forward to reading them. So I guess what I meant is realize what type of learner you are and just follow what RS recommends.

in the beginning i used to listen to the audio course, then i got bored because i feel it took longer than it should be, so i study from the text and i repeat each phrase to make sure my pronunciation is well and i memorize the new vocal or phrases , and i put the audio courses on the iPod so i listen to it on the go , or before sleeping
