Further supporting tips & apps for online German lessons

Especially in online lessons, there are many learners who would like to create their notes digitally. This has the advantage that the noted information is usually stored by an automatic synchronization with the cloud and thus can no longer be lost. Likewise, this allows them to be with you from anywhere in the world with internet reception. The disadvantage is that these apps almost always require a premium version so that all functions can be fully used.

For fast and good learning, we recommend you to write notes by hand – this can be done with a pen for your device or by hand on paper.

These are the apps we recommend for digital note taking:

  1. Goodnotes (iPhone, iPad, Mac)
  2. Notability (iPhone, iPad, Mac)
  3. Microsoft OneNote (Android, iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows)
  4. Evernote (Android, iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows)
  5. Nebo (Android, iPad, Windows)

  3. Minimize distractions: e.g., turn off smartphone notification sounds & vibration and set aside during online classes.
  4. Avoid multitasking: try to focus on the lesson and don’t check your mail inbox on the side.
  5. Motivate yourself by keeping your goal of online education or training in focus – “This is what I am working towards and this is what I want & will achieve!
