SRS for Vocab Learning


Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the spaced repetition system for vocabulary learning? Or any other language learning in general? I've personally seen some great results with it (English vocabulary, I've yet to try using it for supplementing my French studies).

If you guys don't know what SRS is, it is basically a system in which you place vocabulary you know the best, in the back and the vocabulary you're shaky on, in the front. There is more detailed information on SRS online, but that is the gist of it.

To practice SRS, you can try using the free program, Anki. What I did was I went on dictionary.com and took the last 30 "word of the day's" to get started. Now, whenever I come across a word I don't know, I'll just put it into my Anki deck and go a couple of rounds before continuing my day.
