What do you do after you receive notebook corrections?

I have found that getting my writing corrected is very helpful. I read the corrected versions several times. But I wonder if I should reread them until I am confident that if I have to speak to someone in real life about the same topic unexpectedly, I would be able to express my ideas.

Do you rewrite your corrected notebook entries?

How often do you read them?

Or do you move on to writing the next topic?

Have you ever found that having written about a topic and memorizing what you wrote helped you in a conversation in the foreign language?

I also recommend reading as much as possible and exposing yourself to the language as often as you can... Watching movies, listening to music (with the lyrics) and, of course, conversation :)

I promise you that even if you make mistakes no-one will laugh at you. My opinion is that the purpose of learning a language is to communicate, so even if sometimes you're not "perfect" it shouldn't stop you from talking!

@ Katarzyna I read that writing by pen allows you to code twice what you write in your brain . It is more effective for longtime memorization of a word and enhances your capacity of writing in another language.

I write down my original post and then the correction underneath for comparison. I've always found that I retain information easier if I hand write it.

I leave a comment saying Thank You. After that I read the correction a couple times and I try to understand why some phrases were incorrect. I don't write the correction down. It must be useful though.
