Chigusa: Now Peter, I have questions. And maybe some listeners can relate.
Peter: Yes, Chigusa?
Chigusa: Let’s say I’m a brand new language learner. I don’t know what Spaced Repetition Flashcards are.
Peter: Alright.
Chigusa: What are they? And how do they teach me words and phrases?
Peter: Great questions, Chigusa. Imagine this: you’re sitting in front of your own personal teacher. And they’re quizzing you with paper flashcards. On the front, you have the word in the target language, and the meaning on the back.
Chigusa: Okay. So, they show me the word, ask me if I know it...
Peter: And if you don’t know the meaning, they flip the card...
Chigusa: ...and show the meaning.
Peter: Exactly. And Chigusa, if you get the answer right, they put them in one pile. If you get the answer wrong, they put them in the other pile. That’s how these flashcards work. You can do that with our Flashcards without the teacher. It does the sorting for you.
Chigusa: So, you see a word. You mark whether you know it or not. You get the answer. Then, you get the next word.
Peter: You got it. They’re very easy to use.
Chigusa: Now, what about Spaced Repetition? What’s that?
Peter: So, this is what makes Flashcards, Spaced Repetition Flashcards so powerful. If you get a word wrong, you will see that card more often...
Chigusa: ...until I get it right?
Peter: Exactly. It’s going to keep popping up until you remember the answer. Remember the teacher sitting in front of you? The card you get incorrect goes into a pile and then the teacher sporadically quizzes you on it.
Chigusa: Mm, that sounds good! So it forces you to remember and get it right.
Peter: And if you get the word right... you will see that word in maybe 2 days. Then, in 4 days. Then in 16 days and so on. It comes up less frequent, the teacher shows it less because you don’t need it as much.
Chigusa: Ah, so it spaces the words out.
Peter: Exactly. The flashcards repeat the words over spaced periods of time.
Chigusa: This is something a teacher can’t do. They can’t remember your progress.
Peter: Chigusa, let's not say teachers. So, this is something some teachers can't do. Because some teachers are really, really good and can do anything. But yes, the flashcards will. They will track your progress. What you got right or wrong. And then quiz you days later to keep your memory fresh.
Chigusa: Ah ok. But why should I see the words again 2 days or 4 days later?
Peter: Well, we don’t learn things usually by seeing them once, right?
Chigusa: Yes, very true.
Peter: So, by repeating the word over a spaced period of time, you remember the words better.
Chigusa: Got it. So, they’re pretty easy to use. But does it take a lot of time?
Peter: Around 5 minutes if you’re studying 20 words.
Chigusa: By the way, listeners, you can set a limit on the number of words per session:
Peter: 10, 20, 30 40 or 50 words.
Chigusa: So, listeners, if you have a few minutes...
Peter: ...if you’re on the train, if you’re going to work, you can put that time to use....
Chigusa: ...you can take out your phone and learn new words.
Peter: You can learn with pre-made flashcard decks like the top 100 words...
Chigusa: ...you can also make your own decks based on lesson vocabulary...
Peter: ...or words from the Word Bank, Vocabulary Lists or the 2000 Core Word List.

When a word on a flashcard is shown, is it spoken also, so one can hear the correct pronunciation?

Thanks

Darrell
