I'm currently close to the end of Course 1 of JFZ and the thought occurred to me, how do people revise what they have learnt. I use anki as flip cards for words and some sentence/grammar structures but am keen to hear how people revise their learning from the previous chapters, how often you go back to revise past material and fundamentally 'how' you revise (techniques). Do you go back and write out sentences, do you develop your own sentences, do you write out grammar rules until they stick in your head? do you use revision schedules and if so do you have any resources you rely on to support the revision session?
I can learn concepts from the book, I can read the chapters etc but revision feels a bit like a dark art for me right now and I'm worried I forget what I know because I don't have an effective revision system.

my method: review and imaginary conversations|
My method has been to create picture flash cards for a slap-it game or memory with the words. I am working on the books with my children and this is the best method for them to practice vocabulary. For me I use them as standard flashcards or use the app "dA Flashcards" on my phone.
For grammar, I make-up conversations; much like having an imaginary friend when little. When I get to some grammar or words I am not sure about, I go back to the book and look it up. This was the best method I found for increasing my language skills when I studied other languages.
There are some other apps that I find useful: "KawaiiNihongo" by MardukCorp, "Kanji Study" by Luli Languages, "J-Crosswords" by renshuu

Thanks for your reply. It’s interesting you mention making up your own conversations.|
I’m trying to embed my learning of sentence structure at the moment and I suspect this may well be a very good way to do it. My worry is I inadvertently teach myself the wrong grammar. How do you check the sentences you make up are right? Do you base them closely to the examples you learnt in the textbooks?
