Just wanted to ask who here still take notes by hand when learning languages? I’ve tried typing them on my laptop and/or iPad, but unfortunately, I don’t seem to retain as much information.
In my case, as a more visual-spatial learner, I still meticulously take notes by hand and color-code them. It especially helps with agglutinative languages and languages with cases. I tried using just one color before when taking down notes, and I found it extremely difficult to concentrate on my studies and retain information. With colors, I can group the words into their respective lexical categories or emphasize a few points and understand everything in a few seconds.
Attached here are some of my notes. Anyone here employs a similar method? I’d love to hear your tips and suggestions.
PS: I also meticulously analyze song lyrics and excerpts from books (especially “The Little Prince”).
