Diverse Learning:

We have built many gizmos into the program so that learning remains fun and exciting. 

Repeat the words until you know all the vocabulary: 
In all of the tests, you have to type in the right words so often that you will be able to do the correct translation instantly.
Simple words stop appearing in the daily program after 2 or 3 repetitions.
More difficult word may be repeated 5 or 6 times.
Especially difficult words, which you often don't know, are asked even more often.
Most importantly we don't want you to have forgotten these words by the very next day! 


Seven words at a time: 
After learning seven new words, the software will show you a table with a summary.
Learning seven words at a time is especially effective.
Now you can repeat these words again at a glance. 


Points, learning time and number of repetitions: 
You can already see how long you spend with one lesson unit.
By the way, you won't be able to cheat:
The program will actually only show the amount of time you worked.
If you would like to take, say a one hour brake, 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 knew, 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 brake.
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 knew a word, you will see a new photo as 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!
