Peter: Listeners, the easiest way to sharpen your language skills...
Becky: and reach language perfection is simply by reviewing again and again.
Peter: So, here’s a question for you...
Becky: ...when you’re done with a lesson, do you ever revisit it to review?
Peter: Reviewing something makes the difference between...
Becky: ...understanding language the instant you hear it, and only catching 2 words...
Peter: ...speaking smoothly without thinking, and getting stuck, trying to remember words.
Becky: And, it makes the difference between....
Peter: ...reading with just a quick glance...
Becky: ...and struggling to read words, letter by letter.
Peter: So, if you want to sharpen and master your target language, listeners...
Becky: ...Reviewing is a must.

Peter: So, Becky. Let’s get into today’s topic.
Becky: Listeners, how can you sharpen your language skills simply by reviewing?
Peter: Before we tell you the 5 ways, here’s why reviewing REALLY works.
Becky: Imagine a child who just learned how to read. At first, they slowly struggle through a sentence.
Peter: On the second try, they know what the most of the words sound like...
Becky: ...so they read it a little bit faster. It’s a little easier.
Peter: On the third try, they read that sentence at normal, native speed.
Becky: On the fourth try, they’re a LOT faster. Simply because they reviewed the same sentence again and again.
Peter: So, the more times you go over something...
Becky: ...the closer you get to mastering it. And it’s no different with language.
Peter: So listeners, here are 5 tactics and learning tools that will help you to review...
Becky: ...and seriously sharpen your language skills.
Peter: Number One: Listen to lines again and again with Line by Line Audio.
Becky: This is definitely one of our users' most loved Premium features.
Peter: And for good reason. The Line by Line alone will make you speak faster and improve your listening skills.
Becky: Listeners, you can listen to and repeat the lines again and again until you speak faster.
Peter: And because you can listen as many times as you want, your listening skills will also improve.
Becky: Best of all, you’ll understand every word...
Peter: ...you can read along as you listen and all lines come with translations!
Becky: Alright, Number Two: Perfect your pronunciation with the voice recording tool.
Peter: The best way to boost your pronunciation is to record it...
Becky: ...and compare it to a native speaker's.
Peter: That’s right. Once you can hear the two pronunciations one after another, you’ll know how to improve.
Becky: And with the voice recording tool, you can record and compare yourself again and again...
Peter: ...until you reach pronunciation perfection.
Becky: Listeners, you’ll find the voice recording tool inside the Line-by-Line Audio.
Peter: Number Three: Master conversations completely with the Dialogue track.
Becky: The dialogue track gives you just the conversation of a lesson.
Peter: So, there’s absolutely no English.
Becky: Listen to it again and again until you completely understand every single word.
Peter: This is a great way to see just how much you understand...
Becky: ...and a great language-immersion tactic.
Peter: Number four: Review conversations you’ve already learned with a playlist of dialogue tracks on your mobile device.
Becky: This is based on Number three and is great immersion tactic as well.
Peter: That’s right, Becky. Listeners, just download the dialogue tracks to your mobile device...
Becky: ...make a playlist, and listen as often as possible.
Peter: This is a great way to review every lesson you’ve done and brush up on your vocab, grammar and listening.
Becky: And number five: Read faster with the Line by Line or the Lesson Notes.
Peter: Listeners, since you get the entire transcript of a conversation in the Lesson Notes...
Becky: ...or the Line by Line, you can read again and again. So... start slow first.
Peter: If you need pronunciation help, listen to the Audio.
Becky: Then, read a little faster. And then a third time. And keep increasing your speed...
Peter: ...until you can read each line with a single glance.
Becky: And just by reviewing alone, you’ll sharpen your language skills.
Peter: You’ll speak without thinking, understand what you hear instantly, and read faster.
Becky: And if you want to unlock these effective learning tools...

Suelo repasar las lecciones en dos maneras distintas:


1. Agrego el vocabulario que ya no conozco a las fichas para aprovechar del software de repetición espaciada (SRS)

2. Escucho la pista de diálogo una semana después de la primera vez que la escuché


Gracias por los consejos. Me gusta mucho la sugerencia de bajar los diálogos y crear una lista de reproducción que los contiene. Así sería fácil de escucharlos al azar. Ahorita la voy a armar.

-------------------

I typically review in two different ways:


1) I add the vocabulary that I don't know to the flashcards so I get the benefit of SRS

2) I listen to the dialogue track one week after the first time I heard it


Thanks for the tips. I really like the suggestion of downloading the dialogue tracks and creating a playlist from them. With that in place, it would be easy to listen to them randomly for even greater benefit. I'm going to set that up shortly.
