To Notebook or not to Notebook
Last night I decided to read through my entire Dutch-->English notebook that I've been keeping since 20 July. I do review the notebook in part most nights and sometimes read through the whole thing. Last night when I read through it, I realized I am not really learning the words/phrases in it as good as I thought I was. Yes I remember some, but most I do not. So now I am wandering is it worth it to still carry this thing around with me everywhere I go? Maybe I am using it wrong? Any ideas? I like the idea of the notebook and I feel like in the beginning it was a big help, but now with almost a months worth of information in it, it is a bit overwhelming...
Some of you told me you use notebooks. How exactly do you use them and then, how do you review the information in?
