Simple words stop appearing in the daily program after 2 or 3 repetitions.

Most importantly we don’t want you to have forgotten these words by the very next day!

The program will actually only show the amount of time you worked.
If you would like to take, say a one hour break, the clock stops ticking until you’re ready to work again.
Every word allows you to see how often you have already repeated it today.
Words that you knew immediately will no longer appear in tests for this day.
Word that you are still having trouble with will continue to appear again and again.
For every word you know, you get points.
In this way, you can compare a day’s learning with each other. You also see, for example, at which time of the day you learn vocabulary the quickest.
A break after every 30 minutes:
Studies have shown that after a half an hour of learning concentration decreases rapidly.
For this reason, your language course will remind you every 30 minutes that you should take a break.
Stand up, go for a walk, drink a glass of water.
Afterwards, reinvigorated, you are ready for the next half an hour!
(You can, of course, ignore the reminder and immediately continue learning.)
A wide variety of pictures:
If you know a word, you will see a new photo as a reward.
(We have also thought of something for you even if you answer incorrectly…)
When you see that the course is fun and rewarding, you will be motivated to see it through to the end!
