  A good idea  
Be an active listener in class. You can think faster than your teacher can speak. Use this to your advantage by evaluating what your teacher says and anticipating what your teacher will say next.

Another free Study Tip "The best way to learn is to help your fellow classmates, friends and siblings in their studies, especially if it is the same subject and/or topic. You will find new concepts you wouldn't have thought about before and that way you will do more research and will try to understand a topic more and in a better way."

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors I recommend flashcards. I have always used them with my core subjects at school, but really grew attached to them when I started studying languages! I like to challenge friends with them to make it more interesting - keeping score while calling out or showing a card and having friends guess. Also, these days you can even play games with them on your iPad/iphone. Just lookup "flashcard games" or "flashcard" in the app store and see all the apps to help you study using flashcards.
