Having used Linguist for some 21 months I think, and apparently having attained the end of the deck at about 4680 French words I would like to express a little frustration.
From about 3600 words Linvist has been congratulating me on finishing the course, and then consequently limiting the number of words that I can review.
Yesterday it was just 33 words. Today it was about 60 words.
My frustration is this: the amount of words it gives to review is limited to just this small amount. It is not possible to review the recommended daily amount of 150 plus words. So that I find that my knowledge of the words that have been presented to me has actually been slipping.
This to me is a really bad problem and one which I believe needs to be rectified immediately. Initially I had been achieving 80-90% correct. Admittedly it does fluctuate. Sometimes it is as high as 78%, but today it came up with words that had not been presented for a long time and the score rate was a terrible 63%.
I am now feeling that Linguist has in some respect cheated me by so greatly restricting the number of words that can now been reviewed - far less than what seems to be necessary to cement retention in long term memory- and is sort of like making me question whether all the time and effort of the past months has been worth it.**
