How Should I Go About Taking Notes?

Should I have a notebook dedicated specifically to Spanish? Give me a good way that I can outline my notes. Thanks

You should definitely have a notebook for Spanish. The front part you should use for the ideas that you learn about the way the language works with its different parts of speech. The back half you should use to keep track of the new words that you learn, and it would be a good idea to (a) mark down which lesson/module each new word comes from, and (b) set yourself the goal of creating ten sentences with each new word for homework. Dl can help you learn Spanish, but you'll need additional stuff to make the learning stick. i'd suggest a workbook like this one http://www.amazon.com/Workbook-Spanish-First-Primer-Libro/dp/0877205035/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1377668621&sr=8-2&keywords=amsco+spanish+workbook to help you get a firm idea of what you're learning and to get additional practice. The book is divided up into sections and chapters that deal with different points of grammar, and provides a lot of worthwhile practice. Make sure to do your work in pencil the first time so that you can do easier corrections of whatever you get wrong, and let your parents know that they can find the answer keys for purchase at various educational book companies so that they can supervise your work.


Thank you so much. You are really helpful and active in the Duolingo community. I really appreciate it. I'm going to be looking into that book. Thanks again. Also, I have school tomorrow, but since I'm home-schooled I don't have to wake up early and plus I can work at my own pace. So I think that I'll pull a all nighter and work on my Spanish. I'm taking Spanish right now for my home-school program, but I asked to be dropped as the curriculum doesn't make any sense to me. I'm going to be using Duolingo for a long time to improve on Spanish, and then I'll learn another language. Thanks again
