    • Use your favorite color, that should be bright whenever you're going to do your flashcards.
    • Get a folder for your Spanish class, that's where you can put you homework and handouts.
    • If your teacher has an accent, stay close to him or her whenever you're taking notes, and when you don't understand what they're saying, at the end of class ask for a summary of the day's lessons.
  • Use a personal notebook or a section of your notebook that you use for Spanish for the words that you came across and you don't understand, which is also called a Vocabulary section
  • Your homework is a big part of the class. It has to be neat, perfect, and the answers should be mostly correct. You must also show that you understood the days lessons.
  • Whenever they say there will be a test or quiz, start studying. Don't just think that you know everything that's going to be on the test, because you never know; your brain could freeze and you could forget everything.
  • Ask the teacher questions, not the stupid kind. It shows that you are paying attention.
  • Listen in class. Teachers also hate it when they ask you a question and you just sit there and stare into space. If you have a problem, say in Spanish that you don't understand.


  • Don't fool around.
  • Don't put off a project or studying.
  • Don't think you can get away with not doing homework.
  • Don't ask too many questions, or always raise your hand to answer questions. Let the other kids have a turn.
