I have been doing DL for about 7 months. I finished my German tree and I am trying to keep the tree gold to review the lessons. I am also doing the reverse tree, watching videos, reading, studying books, and doing Immersion. However I feel that I need a more efficient system and I have been researching how to do it. I came across these articles, I think they are interesting:

http://zenhabits.net/how-to-learn-a-language-in-90-days/ (The system is in the middle of the article)

http://fourhourworkweek.com/2014/03/21/how-to-learn-a-foreign-language-2/

http://fourhourworkweek.com/2009/01/20/learning-language/

http://fourhourworkweek.com/2014/07/16/how-to-learn-any-language-in-record-time-and-never-forget-it/

All these techniques and others in books such as Fluent Forever are not as fun as DL.

Thanks for the articles. I have downloaded some free ebooks from Amazon about the same subject. I also looked on YouTube and learned about listening while repeating, listening while reading in your native language and listening while reading in the foreign language. I also have Fluent Forever. DL is the best, it has gotten me through Spanish and half-way through French.

Interesting, listening while repeating. Do you do that while practicing in DL?

No, it is more when listening to an audio or a podcast.
