Buy a ring binder and ask your teacher to go through what sections it can be divided up into Buy a really loud alarm clock! Talk about what you have learned with your classmates after lessons – it helps it all sink in Don’t be put off by the first two weeks – it does get easier! Use your study periods to keep on top of your work – don’t waste it Talk to your teachers for help – they’re really helpful!
