@Michael Abercrombie Hi! I honestly don't even know if I'm doing things correctly myself. I'm not an expert, but I do have to say that input is extremely important. Create time for the language you're learning and incorporate it into your daily life so that learning the language isn't so much as a chore. I like to listen to music and watch Youtube videos in my target language. I do a lot of mimicking, and I've noticed it helps with pattern-creation and pronunciation as well.
