The Foreign Service Institute data supports the argument that if you're going to learn something well, you have to supplement the subject. Which here might range from cutting movie soundtracks to disk and replaying them on long walks, to on-line conversations, to learning a language au lit. :)

But what about the maintenance required to keep those skills alive? Isn't it like diet and exercise, where once you start, you have to maintain it your whole life? Otherwise, all that study becomes, well, so much dated dabbling.
