Hi All!

I would like to share with you my technique which I used to memorize foreign words.

When I used to be a student and had an exam in foreign languages, I used to ask my fellow students to ask me the words from my dictionary, which we had to learn, and I had to tell them the correct word. I believe that this method helped me a lot in learning the difficult words.

So, I came up with the idea of creating a small and simple Android app which acts like a personal dictionary. The purpose is simple: 

- You write down the words which you would like to remember into your phone and translate them

- You can test your knowledge by playing - the program will ask you the words and you have to type the correct translation.

For example, let`s say you study German and your are an English speaker. You save these words in your dictionary: table - der Tisch. The app will ask you "What is table in your studied language?", then you have to type "der Tisch". Simple, isn`t it? :)

Of course, you can modify or delete the words which you don`t need anymore. There is an option to export your words to Google drive or similar. 

I m planning to add more features but this depends on how much free time I have... I know that this is a simple application right now, so I would be very happy if you share your ideas with me. If you wish to see some other features, don`t hesitate to let me know :)  Just drop a message, or reply here.

The app is called I know that word and can be found here:


It is free! 

I hope that you will find it useful!

Thanks :)

Well the one thing that I think would benefit me in the method that @Kirshimentions is that making it into a game is nice little way to motivate myself.  It is kind of weird to think about because I feel like I am pulling my own strings, but if it works then I am willing to give it a try.  When it comes to memorization that is a place where I tend to struggle and I have never really been a rote learner, so this might be a good way to get around that fact.  Thanks for the share.

      Studies show that 95% of those who learn a language during an extended stay in a foreign country can speak the language in a much better way than those who do not immerse themselves in the new language. For most people, the easiest and most effective way to learn a new language is to speak a lot. In this way, new neuronal pathways and connections are formed in your brain. Very soon you will be able to use the new skills confidently. We have understood this principle and developed a new language learning program that allows you to speak your new language from day one, whether at home or on the go. Try it yourself, and you will see how much easier language learning is than with traditional language course.
