I am on Level 3 Lesson 4. I have started listening to my Level 3 Podcasts, and while my comprehension is improving quickly, I find I am losing the ability to formulate sentences and responses as quickly as I did in Levels 1 and 2. I'm feeling like the more verbs and verb conjugation I learn, the more options I have to filter through when crafting responses, and I literally freeze. I was speaking more easily and crafting faster responses when I had less vocabulary. Anyone have tips/advice for bringing comprehension and speaking on a more even parallel?

I had the same problem with Fluenz Spanish a few years ago. During conversations in Colombia I would freeze on verbs so many times after I got to a certain point in the curriculum. It got so bad I would try to avoid verbs as much as possible and say or answer with only a few words. I got frustrated and stopped using Fluenz. I am startling over this year, but I think I will eventually have the problem with the verbs again. I am interested in what advice Fluenz have on this.

So far, I have backtracked to reviewing Level 2 vocab again, and listening to Level 1 and 2 Podcasts to break things down more simply. I have pushed ahead to Lesson 8 in Level 3, and I'm starting to finally put it all together again. I was frustrated at having to backtrack, but it seems to have helped a little.
