Do you sometimes feel that your results graph curve is not ascending the way you want it to and progressing feels hard? Here are some tips to help you speed up learning and take your language skills to a new level!
1. Proceed fast
Good language skills demand automation. If you want to learn to speak a new language fluently, you need to know all the basic words and grammar constructions without thinking.
Achieving automation calls for repetition. There is no need to hurry, but when a new exercise opens, don’t spend too long trying to get it perfectly right the first time – if you don’t know and can’t guess the word, press Translate, Listen or Try.
2. Study often
Sleep empties the working memory. When you start practicing on a new day, all answers come from your long term memory. This is one of the indicators that WordDive uses to measure your progress.
We recommend short study sessions and proper breaks. Try to study almost every day or even multiple times a day.
3. Listen only when necessary
If you listen to the answer first, WordDive thinks you used your working memory and answered based on what you just heard. But if you don’t know the answer yet, then it is better to listen first than leave the text field empty.
WordDive measures how fast you learn. If you do other things like watch TV or chat with somebody at the same time, the program estimates your learning abilities lower than they actually are. So when you practice with WordDive, stay focused.
5. Change courses every now and then
WordDive recommends that you change courses when repetition doesn’t bring any more significant benefit on that day. If WordDive recommends you to change courses and you still have energy, change courses. You can return to the first course the next day.
