I discovered that it be more easier to write down notes on my IPad. I have the IPad Air. It’s more convenient and practical to write down note I learnt in an app. I try to write down or use exercise books book but that did not helped me to retained any information. I have dyslexia and always relied on technology for assignment. I need the text to be clear and to have grammar and spelling correct.
If I have the IPad Pro I would of brought the Apple Pencil for writing.
Tinycards app for learning new vocabulary
I use app flash cards to learn new vocabulary daily for 5 mins during the day. These cards are easy to make on a app called Tinycards. I’ll learn a set topic for a week till I learnt the words and remember the vocabulary in Japanese. I can create my own cards that I want to remember the most.
Bear / Notebook app
I using apps on my iPad to keeping Japanese note I learn from YouTube lessons. I can write them in Japanese and record my speaking in Notebook app. It is really good for taking notes and keeping information organised. I can clearly read Japanese and edited the notes.
Notebook app is very good for recording myself speaking Japanese with written annotations.
Journal app DayOne
I use dayone app as a personal dairy but I also do write down a few Japanese sentences.
There are other app you can get, some you have to pay. The three app I used are free and the best pick from App Store.
I sometimes screenshot videos from YouTube for added information.
This can apply to any language you are learning.
