practicing weakest words

I think this feature has to have a better algorithm to select "weakest" words. For instance, I keep having "hallo" as a weakest word because I last practiced it two days ago. I think more priority should be given to the words that we make mistakes on, rather than to when we last practiced it.

Yeah, it seems to be time-decay based, so I keep getting words introduced early on which I already know cold. It seems like it would make more sense to practice words introduced more recently, which are not committed to long term memory yet. Or maybe have a user options page where they can customize the practice settings and tweak it to what the individual user wants. Just a thought.

Chao :)

Oooh I like the idea to be able to choose what you want to practice!
