- All words are presentend in sentence context. We believe that it is not enough to learn words as isolated factlets like "море = sea". Instead, learning to recognize a foreign word is a skill to be trained by seeing the word in wide variety of sentence contexts and inflection forms. That's why we present all new words in ample context. Even if you can already answer the flashcard question by typing the word, it is important for your ability to read natural texts to also spend some time reading the example sentences.
- Sentence context is annotated. By definition, beginners can't read natural sentence contexts, since if they had enough vocabulary to do that, they would be intermediate students. Then how is it possible to present ample context? We have solved this by annotating example sentences. By hovering over unknown words you can learn to recognize the new word in varying contexts even before you have wide enough vocabulary to read the contexts without dictionary.
- Tried and tested spaced repetition algorithm. The card selection algorithm will select a small set of new words which you don't know yet. It will repeat them until you demonstrate mastery and will gradually replace mastered words with new ones. This way, your challenge level continues to be optimal for learning. You will also review cards with increasing interval each time you demonstrate mastery.
