We've put a lot of effort into streamlining the language-learning process. To learn efficiently on Glossika, all you really have to do is be consistent:
Log into Glossika each day
Review the items Glossika has scheduled for review
Learn new items (after finishing your reviews)
That's it. That's enough. You don't need to do anything super fancy.
A five-year-old has already spoken about a million sentences. At Glossika, we believe that a major hurdle facing most learners is the simple fact that they haven't really used their language enough if they've used it at all. We help learners get over this hurdle by providing you with thousands of sentences that gradually increase in difficulty.
If you're new to this, know that language learning doesn't have to be complicated. So long as you're consuming content in your target language, and you understand that content, you're making progress. If you're following the above three steps, you're satisfying those conditions.
Eventually, you'll be ready to move on from Glossika and begin learning by having conversations, reading books, watching movies, and so forth. When you're ready, you'll know.
If you're a professional and you know what you're doing — by all means, do your thing.
Why this particular study order?
While you can learn new items anytime, there is actually an ideal time to review old ones. Glossika's algorithm considers many factors to figure out when that time is for each sentence you learn.
In other words, if Glossika has put an item into your review list today, that means the algorithm has determined that you are about to forget that sentence. Today, specifically, is when that sentence should be reviewed. As such, we recommend prioritizing your reviews.
A few other things to think about
More practically speaking, each of our learning modes is tailored to a different situation
Full-practice mode is more intense and delivers faster results: do this when you can sit down and focus
Listening-only mode is convenient and can be done virtually anywhere: do this when you have downtime and want to squeeze in a bit of extra learning
