Oh darlin’, I almost hate to make a suggestion. This is your process, do what you want!
However, if it were me, I’d start over from the beginning since your lapse has been a year. Actually I started quite a few times myself before I’d completed it all the way. The last time though, I skipped Chapter one cause I’d started it so many times, I had that chapter practically memorized. So yeah, give starting over a try, but if it feels super-redundant, start over wherever it feels fresh again. :)
How I did it: I tried Rosetta Stone...meh it was okay. I tried language exchange...usually turned out to be Koreans trying to get free English lessons so I didn't learn much there. Finally I just worked on vocabulary memorization. My grammar was atrocious, I'm sure, but the more I added to my personal word bank, the more I found I could recognize patterns in Korean speech and understand the translation of English TV shows on cable.
If I were staying in Korea another year, I'd join an official class to start working more on grammar and the form of the language. Alas I'm going home to America, so my studies probably won't progress much, but you never know, some interesting opportunity to take it up again may arise. :) Read how I did it… 6 months ago
How I did it: My friend and I agreed to do it together while on Spring Break vacation. I'd never been so scared in my life. I nearly peed my pants. But once I felt the cord hold my weight and stop my descent it was thrilling. What a rush! Read how I did it… 12 months ago

It’s a tough one to finish, it’s interesting and even mind-blowing but not exactly a page-turner. Anyway that is one fat edition in my half-read library which will feel like a true accomplishment when it’s done. :) 12 months ago

I’m overweight, but I’ve always wanted to try this. To feel beautiful and feminine and powerful—reach down in that divine womanhood that goes beyond rolls of fat and body scars. And I managed it. At burningman 2011, they had an art camp. So I signed up to be a live model for an hour. A few of the artists told me I was their favorite that they love to draw curves and I gave a great deal of emotion in my poses. I felt so free and confident and it was really fun. I threw in a few ballet and yoga poses with gestures of rage and sorrow. I even did a couples pose with another model. I loved it! 21 months ago
How I did it: I found a beautiful but easy to use calligraphy fountain pen that was relatively inexpensive ($7) and I looked online for some stylized calligraphy to practice. After several clumsy attempts, practice made perfect and my hand-made wedding invitations came out beautifully! Read how I did it… 1 year ago
