Abstract


There is a good rationale behind teaching of note-taking to the learners of English as a second language that learners can not get chance to listen a lecture again. Note-taking is one of the study skills. It amalgamates listening, reading, writing, and comprehension skills for academic achievement and performance. Notes may be defined as the main points of any topic written in symbolic and abbreviated form. The main purpose of note-taking in academic life is to remember whatever is important either in lectures or in textbooks for passing tests/ examinations. Hence the teaching of note-taking to the learners of English as a second language is pivotal, and purposive in teaching learning process. There are various methods of note-taking such as Cornell Method, Outline Method, Mapping Method, Charting Method and Sentence Method etc. However, note-taking makes studies of learners systematic, organized, easy, and well-remembered.
