RE: Algorithm falling apart
In the last two or three days, I've been doing the english to french course, and I keep getting the same words over and over, and the number of words I have to review stays close to 60, always
I've also completed the french course.
This started to happen at the same time as the algorithm in the german course (appear to have) changed. Now the cards that I get wrong seem to appear more to me, and I can review them more frequently.
Before I was really frustrated with the german course, since my rate of correct cards was in average 50%, but now it is 90%.
RE: Lingvist 2.0: thematisation of vocabulary
I've been doing the german course for a while, and I also have been struggling to remember some words. Like Kyle, there are some words that I reviewed up to 50 times. deshalb, particularly, i reviewed 75 times. now, as i write this, i am trying to remember what deshalb means, and i can't remember, saddly.
This didn't happened when i was doing the french course . I don't know if french is easier, or if the fact that portuguese is my native language helped somehow.
But what I noticed is that, for me to remember the words, i constantly search for something that can be used as a hook to the word.
so, when i was studying french, i could use some elements on the page ( other than the translation) to use as a hook to the actual answer, since there were a lot similarities between french and portuguese or english.
so I think anything that helps to contextualize the translation, and for consequence, to serve as a hook, would help a lot. Thematisation would be great. sections that compartmentalize greatly help to remember things.
