Just started German
Keep working hard! You might get discouraged but never give up! German is totally worth the effort! I hope you enjoy it! :) Don't forget to ask any questions you have!
I'd suggest doing the same lesson twice in a row, instead of blazing through. Then you won't rely on notes so often!
It's great they take you step by step and you can always review and do warmup's
What works for me might not work for you ... but here goes. I try to log in twice a day (once early morning, once late evening), rather than just one long session a day. Both morning and evening are mostly strengthen skills, with a bit of new stuff. When I'm doing something new, I try to write down words and phrases in a separate notebook as I say them - helps them stick in my memory. Hope these ideas help!
