How should I handle which lessons to read at any given time? Should I pick the one I’ve read already with the most LingQs or a completely new one with a high count of unknown words? How do you all select which material is best for you at a certain time?
In the beginning stages of a Language, I think its best to keep tackling new content as much as possible well occasionally going to back to lessons you have already went through (specifically lessons you had a lot of trouble with the first time around) Also continually listening to old and new content.
However, If you are learning for example a Language that is a Category 4 or 5. I would revisit older lessons much more frequently, and spend a little less time trying to tackle new content. But I say all that to say this.
For me at least, I have found that there is no perfect formula. Do whatever you feel motivates you the most and the language will come. I hope I at least semi answered your question. Also i’m curious what other peoples opinion is on this.
Thank you for your reply. I’m in the B1 stage of German and am making the transition to B2. I was worried if me reading new articles was in vain if I forgot the words by not going back and rereading eventually. I’m reassured by “stay active and the language will come,” this requires patience, of which I am growing in. May God bless you in your language pursuits!
I don’t agree, v.v. in the begginning stages I read what I already have read in my native language, and then I just stick to the author (stephen king in my case), because all authors usually have their own limited word-stock, so it’s easy
And after 15-20 books of one author I felt comfortable to pick up any book of any author and read it without struggle, though the very first one was hard to go through
