Great link for learning new behaviors

Shalshelet posted one of the most helpful links that I have seen in a long time. It transported me to this fun site https://docs.google.com/document/d/1syo7Eyhx4Hek-U51lrEFIEcDtonnB6-vZ-3n0FsnPjU/edit. If you ever wanted to improve your life or add new behaviors, this is the link for you.

This relates to language because one of the tiny habits we can do in language learning is to revise your newly learned vocabulary somehow.

There's a scientific method out there called Spaced Repetition System, here's a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spaced_repetition_system

There's apps out there for smartphones and programs for computers to encourage people to practice their vocabulary in a simple 30sec-1 minute test. I like to use it when I'm waiting in line or on the bus just to keep the vocabulary fresh. An example of some software that does SRS is Anki: http://ankisrs.net/


I wish that duoLingo kept a nice running list of vocab so that we could download it and practice.


I haven't tried the one you mention CrazyZ, but I'm using a spaced repetition system called memrise- http://www.memrise.com/home/ I find it really really works. You can create your own word lists, but I just use the basic Spanish one.


Thanks Niam. I just signed up.


Very interesting...thanks NiamhR
