2. Start Learning with Lingvist
Once you’re all set, learning with Lingvist is the easy part.
Tap the “Learn” button, and a flashcard with an example sentence and a blank space will show up, where you’ll need to enter a word in order to complete the sentence.
Don’t know the word? That’s okay – Lingvist will give you some clues to help you complete each sentence, or you can tap “Learn Word” to see the correct answer, so next time you’ll already know what to type.
And don’t worry about making mistakes – they will help you learn and improve your new language skills.
You will also see grammar information on some of the flashcards, particularly the ones related to verbs. This is to ensure that your learning is contextualized and as efficient as possible.
In the top left of each flashcard are five dots that let you know if a word is totally new or if you have progressed in lodging it in your long-term memory.
On the mobile versions, you can type your answer or use voice recognition by tapping the microphone icon and pronouncing the missing word.
Lingvist’s general course teaches you the 6000 most frequently used words in the target language. There are also many other flashcard decks based on themes like “Business” or “Daily Conversations” that will help you learn the vocabulary specific to those topics.
Tap “Content” to see them all!
Our little secret to success is repetition. In order to make sure you remember all those new words, the Lingvist algorithm will repeat the ones you struggle with the most until they are fixed in your memory. The vocabulary that you already know will be registered as learned and won’t be shown again until much later on.
Users who complete at least 50 cards per day, four times a week, will make the fastest progress.
Lingvist uses spaced repetition to show you words at the optimal times for you to remember them. If you want to go deeper into what spaced repetition is and how it works, click the link above.
