Am i the only one who uses a notebook while doing Duo lessons? it really helps me to be able to flip thru it and look up words i cant spell or hen i dont know what they mean (yes i could use the dictionary hits but i prefer my notebook) ALSO i LOVEEE<3 musique so i listen to it alot, but also while im on duolingo doing lessons it helps me focus. I know it sounds strange by it really does help. Also listening to musique thats in the language im learning is VERY helpful too! (im actually ONLY doing french rn so yeah..........) ANYWAY! what helps you guys when studying???? i'd love to know! Im always on the lookout for new french tips!

Firstly, I use a notebook too, and I've noticed that many people do. It's a great learning tool. Even the act of actually writing (not typing) has been found to be an effective contributor to long-term memory. Good for you! Keep it up! Secondly, studies have shown that listening to music while studying increasing retention. Well done! Lastly, I find that switching venues helps me. That is, I'll spend most of my time on duolingo, but I take breaks by visiting http://www.jefrench.com/basic-french-lessons or https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=french+extra, which is very entertaining and funny.

I do take notes here and there, but i haven't taken to using a notebook yet (although i've been meaning to). And i listen to loads of French musique! I love Indila, Stromae, Claudio Capéo, and even old style musique like Lucille Starr, Édith Piaf and Charles Aznavour. I also watch as much French tv as possible. Immersion is key. It doesn't matter if you don't understand anything, because after a while, you do start to understand. Good luck with it! :)

I use a notebook to write all the wrong questions I do. I learn a lot in that way, because I need to write to learn, just doing the exercises i can't learn, I don't know why.

I don't feel the need to. I'm doing French GCSE's in school and am using Duolingo to help me refresh things I consistently forget. It really helps!
