QUIZZING A DECK
Flip a card by tapping it or swiping up or down. Mark yourself as having gotten it correct by swiping right. Mark yourself as having gotten it incorrect by swiping left.
MAKE DERIVATIVE DECKS
If you have purchased the complete deck for a language, you can filter the cards to make a deck of your own choosing. The cards can be filtered based on frequency, part of speech, and location in the Bible. If you just have the free starter decks, you can also filter the starter deck and derive new decks from it.
The Leitner system of spaced repetition helps you master and retain vocabulary efficiently and effectively. The app keeps track of how thoroughly you have mastered each word, and spaces how often you see each accordingly. Cards that have been firmly mastered are displayed rarely, and cards that have not been mastered show up much more often. You can adjust how frequently cards appear at each level of mastery. You also have the option to quiz all of the cards in a deck, regardless of how well you have learned them thus far.
