https://www.learningchinesethroughstories.com/ Listened to a story then the explanation in Chinese. This is useful for vocabulary as it explains many words using explanation, synonyms and examples. Sounds boring but it is done well so it's fun and when you listen to the story again the meaning becomes clear without any effort.

Fluentu daily goal; Pleco - my flashcards collected from reading. This is hard because I have a lot of cards and the setting is to alternate the clues: sound, definition or character. The most difficult is to remember the Chinese for the English definition.

I love FluentU. I started from scratch and finished their beginner course. It is so much better than the traditional textbooks. I prefer the realistic content, despite the occasional mismatches of sound and captions.

Yes Fluentu is excellent. The advice that comes in emails is also well worth reading and following up. In fact I got to Hacking Chinese through a Fluentu post: 10 best sites or something like that.
