Introduction

You can learn much more with learntick than with standard applications, which do not make sure that they repeat the material.

Simply test yourself by clicking on the test button on the bottom of the main window:

You will get asked some simple questions, like "What animals eat bananas?" because this is part of the example vocabulary that comes with a default account

Simply click on the correct answer, which is the ape and the parrot:

At the top of page you get shown these icons:

Please choose the very green icon on the very right. As long as you press on the red button you indicate that you didn't get the solution. In case you found the answer fastly, press the light green button.

Testing basics

The material will get repeated until all correct answers got found. When you have finished the first iteration over all items, you will get asked if you want to learn the final drill:

You should answer this with "yes" and repeat the material once again. Repeating the material makes sure that you will remember it better the next time. However, you don't have to go through the final drill

In case you don't do the final drill, the vocabulary will get marked with the text: (learned), see below:

This means that you still have to do the final drill. Only when there is a date next to the vocabulary, you don't have to repeat the material anymore. This means, you can leave the final drill, but it is recommended to go through it to start learning

When you start the final drill the following text will appear on top of the page:

Yes, you are seeing right: final drill will appear while being in the final drill.

In case you left out the final drill because you didn't have the time to do it, but now you change your opinion, you can simply click on the test button on the bottom of the window where all vocabulary already got learned again:

Certainly you will go through the final drill
