Thanks, Xenops and Carmody!

Also, Carmody, thanks for the briefing on your experiences!
For the time being, I will plan to watch the video once, use the workbooks and audio, then move on to the text and reading tasks. (The teacher's guide suggests doing all the audio before moving onto the text book. So, I'm going to try that for starters.) When I hit more difficult material, I am thinking I'll make note of that lesson and rewatch the video again a week later (difficult material often gels for me after some days of still moving forward) and/or rewatch the video immediately after finishing that lesson's workbook activities. We'll see. I'm only on lesson 2, so my battle plan is guaranteed to evolve. But, having a skeleton of a plan in place gives me something to modify.
