Anyone who’s used Pimsleur- what was your schedule like?

Right now I'm doing one lesson a day, which I repeat twice (morning and evening), then take Sundays off.

Has anyone tried doing a lessons on two consecutive days (like, lesson 12 today and tomorrow, lesson 13 the day after and the next one…)? It will take twice longer to finish the program, but will it help in long term retention?

 

Did you take day offs, or were you on a strict daily routine?

 

Also, when you are supposed to repeat a complex sentence, do you pause the audio as you try to construct the sentence? Sometimes I find the time it gives me to come up with a translation too short as I fumble some words, so I pause it. I wonder if that's hindering my progress and if I should just play it naturally and force myself to keep up and answer.

 

Thanks
