Notes

Asked 1 year ago

So, up until now I've been using a pen and notepad to take notes on the lessons, does anyone else do this and if not, what are your study methods as it's becoming a bit tedious to have to find my notepad every time I want to go over a lesson.

 

Taking notes on lessons is definitely the best thing to do. Writing is a great way to increase memory and retention! Just always put the notebook in the same place so you don't lose it :)

I actually use a paint app on my laptop and I sometimes use whiteboards to write hiragana and katakana from memory.

I used to carry a notepad with me everywhere I went in Japan, writing down words I'd hear repeated a lot or kanji combinations I could pronounce but didn't know the meaning of... Then plug them into drills at a later date. It really helped and was miles better than having to memorise things off lists.

With grammar... I have to have it explained to me by at least three different sources before I retain any of it (or so it would seem) so normally Nihongo Master is last port of call simply because I'll be better prepared for the inevitable drills.

I also keep notes. I'm glad to hear others do it as well. I thought I was just a bit old fashioned.

I also write Japanese phrases often to practise my writing (hiragana, katakana and kanji). So I practise both online and offline. 

I keep my notebook in the same place on my bookshelf so I know where it is.

I take notes on both paper and in OneNote. I think writing things down helps me remember and the notebook is always at my desk.

My electronic notes are keeping my verbs, examples, and more. I can easily search these notes. If I keep things in tables, I can sort them, which is nice.

I did this blog post a few months back. Since then I've taken more notes in OneNote, despite me deciding I wouldn't back then, haha.

I keep a vocabulary book, where I section words by type (e.g food, questions, body parts) and write them in as I'm exposed to them. It's a great way to consolidate vocab from across several different teachers, including this one. As I'm just a beginner there hasn't been a huge amount of crossover between my learning sources, so this records words that don't show up in my drills but I have been exposed to.
