Suggestion: Vocabulary Reinforcement Upon Lesson Completion

Often, when I complete a lesson and am presented with the list of words that have been strengthened, I find myself trying to click / hover to bring up the definitions.

It seems as if this would be a natural time / place to make this info available.

For as many times as I've instinctively looked for it, I know that it would have been of great help with reinforcing vocabulary that I hadn't truly learned during the lesson.

Excellent idea! Then you would know immediately which words needed additional practice, regardless of their assumed strength level.

An interesting idea and I would approve. Hope your topic gose well :D

I may just be mis-understanding your post.This is how works for me. I click on the tree part that I have just finished, and I scroll down to show all words and then I click on a particular word and shows me the meaning, and I can then practice that word if I want to.

@jfgordy I am referencing the list of words that you have just strengthened that appears immediately after the screen announcing that a level has been completed on both the site and the app. I am aware of the fact that I can access a list of "learned" vocabulary from the main tree, but this is no help within the app.

Further, in my opinion, the timing and placement of this information is key. If I am not clear on a word I would take a few seconds to review at the end of a lesson. In all honesty, I am not going to interrupt my lesson flow to hunt around my home page for a word that I may or may not even remember by the time I am looking for it.

As I complete lessons, I still instinctively look for the ability to access a short definition.

Thank you.

Sorry Ringmod 65, I totally misunderstood you, although I was not suggesting to go back home. I was talking about the words that show up after each lesson. Even that list can be long, right?. I think your idea is excellent, and I hope it is adopted. It would be a very useful tool for us all, and less time consuming than the way I do it. Thank you for the input and suggestion.

Am ambiguous about this. Might hinder flow. Worth-testing, probably.

@CzechTomas I am unable to imagine a scenario in which such an improvement "might hinder flow".

After all, a user would need to purposely hover / click to bring up definitions, otherwise the experience would remain completely unchanged and transparent to the user.

Am I missing something? I truly do not understand your concern with "flow".

Please clarify for me.

Thank you.
