Does Lingvist continually test you when presenting new words?

  • Near the beginning I presume Lingvist tests you to place you further along, but does it always test you even after you've been learning languages for awhile?

    Case in point:


    I totally guessed this one -- will I ever see it again? It'd be nice to have Lingvist ask me a couple more times just to make sure it wasn't a fluke.

  • Thank you both, good to know 🙂

    Hey, @devnull, to put it briefly, you will be presented with this word but later than with the other words (that you got wrong). In this case, the app is still fully adaptive, however, its goal is optimal repeats to enhance your learning (as opposed to showing you different difficulty material to estimate your previously acquired language knowledge).

  • I don't think it'll appear again. As a rule I avoid guessing words for this reason, even if I'm fairly sure I would get the guess correct.
