Learn Vocabulary Faster!
...Without the Stress
Automate and Personalize
Progressive Spaced Repetition
(Currently Being Created)
What is Progressive Spaced Repetition?
We took the classic model of Spaced Repetition and built a system that will reduce your stress while you review and progressively build your vocabulary naturally.
You will work with 3 decks.
The Vocabulary Deck
Add only the words you want to learn. Take from:
• The Reader
• Frequency Lists (select languages)
• Or any words you find
Build connections to help you learn the word (such as mnemonics).
* Notice - The connections have to come from your imagination. The effort it takes to build your own connections will make it stronger in your mind.
* This is where we get weird. This is not your normal system.
We know that your brain doesn’t work like a computer. In a perfect world, practicing vocabulary should look like:
But in reality, it may look more like:
Have you ever had a word show up in review, months later, that you can’t remember learning in the first place?
That’s because learning words, by themselves, only gets you familiar with the word. It never teaches you how to use it.
In the Vocabulary deck, we have a MAX time, until re-test, of 1 week. Meaning, the longest you will go without seeing the word is 1 week.
Some words might go through smoothly :D
Days until next review
If you can remember the word and you have reached max time, then that word will be moved into the next phase.
Others...not so much :(
If you can’t remember the word, have no fear. You just need more time to get use to it. The word will start again the next day to give you more time with it.
What we don’t do!
There are no wrong answers! We won't restart the word every time you don't remember it.
By re-setting, you will become the guy in the image above.
Every word you don’t know will pile up. This will only stress you out.
By continuing to “Progress” you through the reviews, it will keep the words from repeating. It makes sure every day is a little different and that you are not always worried about coming across those words you simply can’t remember.
The reason for the “short” 1 week time period is to move the words into the next phase as quickly as possible, because...
Context is Key!
The Sentences Deck
We want you to move those words in to REAL sentences as soon as you can understand the word. This will help you learn “How” to use the word.
When you test a word out of the Vocabulary Deck it goes into Limbo.
Words in Limbo
This is a mid-phase where the word will still be tested in the Vocabulary Deck, until you have moved that word into Sentences.
We recommend you get that word into a Minimum of 3 sentences.
We’ll help you find the perfect sentences! By including sentences from Tatoeba.org you will be able to add sentences with one click.
What You Know +1
You should know 100% of the words in the sentences you add.
Don’t take a sentence if you have never studied a word before. This will make your reviews harder. You can always take the sentence later, after you studied the unknown word.
Just like the Vocabulary Deck, Sentences also have a MAX time until re-test, but this one is longer. | 3 months
With problem sentences, we won’t make you wait for the 3 months. The card will reset in as little as 1 month.
The Reproduction Deck
This is where you start to re-create the language in your head by taking the same sentence you have already studied and flip the cards.
* Note - We don’t force you to do this phase. It can be great practice, but if you are actively getting real world practice, this phase can be skipped.

Note By the Creator
Hello, I'm Cristian Davila. I spent four long years trying to learn Spanish and I still had to rely on Google Translate for basic sentences.
I've tried everything I could get my hand on, still nothing! You may think, "There's a lot of great tools out there," right?
I don't think we've truly seen what online learning is capable of in the world of foreign languages. I have a vision for what it could be. Here is just a little bit of what keeps me going.
WeLing - We Learn Languages
The greatest things in the world only happen when people come together in a shared mission. I want to make this platform into the absolute #1 place for language learners, but I can't do that alone. I need the support from amazing people, like you.
I've been building the foundation for this platform with only one freelancer by my side. Some awesome work has been done, but that can only take me so far. I'm working hard so I can build a full-time team with people who are aligned with my mission. Every member I have will bring me one step closer to providing improvements on every single part of this platform.
Key Improvements Include:
• Clean-up the User Interface
• Massive Upgrade to the Reading Tool
• Re-work of the Messaging System
• And the BIG ONE - Bring WeLing to Mobile!
But it doesn't stop there! I can't even begin to describe every single plan that I have. Actually, I can't, because it's a secret.
The Man on a Mission
I may not be able to say much yet, but I'm not going to sit back and laugh maniacally as I count all the money coming in...well, maybe a little. At least, I won't be doing that while sipping the most expensive wine on a million dollar yacht.
I have a vision that I need to make a reality. I can't imagine wasting a moment for relaxation. I've actually tried to relax before and I came out more tired then if I just kept moving. I'm a weird person, huh?
I want to make the #1 Platform for Language Learners! I can't do that on a yacht.
