I just want to make a reminder about your note taking. If you expect to remember words from class, you must be careful to take good notes! If you just write one word, you may not remember the context or related words. Instead, write as much info as you can. Even write some example sentences and related words. Even if you miss a few parts of the class. If you are writing and listening at the same time, this effort will also increase your ability to hear English and follow a conversation well!!
