The long-term memory method of 17-Minute-Languages:


This learning method is based on the newest findings from research on vocabulary learning.
Every word to be learned will be repeated at precise intervals.
 
The long-term method works like this:
 
You learn a new word.
This word is then registered in the program.
The systematic repetition of the word begins immediately:
 
  1. First thing on the following day you have to correctly translate this word.
  2. The program then waits for two days.
    On the third day you will be prompted by the same word again.
    You then have to translate it correctly.
  3. The program then waits 4 more days.
    On the eighth day you will be prompted by the same word yet again.
  4. The program then waits a final 9 days.
    You have to correctly translate the word just one more time on day 17.
If you knew the word on each occasion, by this time you will never forget it!
It is permanently lodged in your long-term memory.
(Important to know: If you forgot the word to be learned on any occasion during the repetition phase, the repetition starts anew.)
 
With this learning method, you will learn all of the vocabulary in this Maltese course.
New words will be added to your lessons every day.
Your vocabulary will grow rapidly.

Diverse Learning:


We have built many gizmos into the program so that learning remains fun and exciting.

In all of the tests, you have to type in the right words so often that you will be able to do the correct translation instantly.
Simple words stop appearing in the daily program after 2 or 3 repetitions.
More difficult word may be repeated 5 or 6 times.
Especially difficult words, which you often don't know, are asked even more often.
Most importantly we don't want you to have forgotten these words by the very next day!

After learning seven new words, the software will show you a table with a summary.
Learning seven words at a time is especially effective.

overview points Points, learning time and number of repetitions:
You can already see how long you spend with one lesson unit.
By the way, you won't be able to cheat:
The program will actually only show the amount of time you worked.
If you would like to take, say a one hour brake, the clock stops ticking until you're ready to work again.
 
Every word allows you to see how often you have already repeated it today.
Words that you knew immediately will no longer appear in tests for this day.
Word that you are still having trouble with will continue to appear again and again.
 
For every word you knew, you get points.
In this way, you can compare a day's learning with each other. You also see, for example, at which time of the day you learn vocabulary the quickest.


 
break A break after every 30 minutes:
Studies have shown that after a half an hour of learning concentration decreases rapidly.
For this reason, your language course will remind you every 30 minutes that you should take a brake.
Stand up, go for a walk, drink a glass of water.
Afterwards, reinvigorated, you are ready for the next half an hour!
(You can, of course, ignore the reminder and immediately continue learning.)


 
pictures A wide variety of pictures:
If knew a word, you will see a new photo as reward.
(We have also thought of something for you even if you answer incorrectly...)
When you see that the course is fun and rewarding, you will be motivated to see it through to the end!
