LESSON NOTES

STEP 1
Find a video or podcast (Something you are interested in)

  • Description:
    • Look for a video or podcast that is connected to a topic you enjoy.
  • Reason:
    • Learning about topics you already enjoy makes it easy for your brain to make connections as you listen.

STEP 2
Listen & Mark the timestamps (The parts you don’t understand)

  • Description:
    • Listen to the video/podcast and write down the timestamps of the parts you don’t understand.
  • Reason:
    • Jotting down quick notes is good because it doesn’t stop you from listening to the remainder of the program.

STEP 3
Go to the timestamp (Listen again & guess)

  • Description:
    • Listen to the portions at the timestamps one more time and guess what is being said.
  • Reason:
    • This will help you focus on small portions instead of the entire program. 

STEP 4
Figure out the context (Before, after, & overall)

  • Description:
    • Listen to the portions before and immediately after the portion you didn’t understand. Then think about the video as a whole.
  • Reason:
    • This will help your brain start to connect the information and understand what you missed.

STEP 5
Listen one more time (Make sure you understand)

  • Description:
    • Listen to the program one more time and make sure you are able to understand the portions you went over.
  • Reason:
    • This will help you feel more confident and give your brain one last time to recognize what you learned.
