I already used the words auto learning with V0.0.4 and it worked quite good.
Does it always make sense to set “somehow known words” to be auto learned, especially when I know/heard those words in other courses, e.g
PT3 auto-learn (not the easiest) words which I heard in PT Basic or DuoLingo PT BR before?
I was thinking about an additional option where you can imediately jump to step 5 (and bypass multi-choice, tapping, audio) for learning the words and I would need to do the manual typing (user script memrise-alltyping) at least one time, before the flower got planted to step 6.
I would probably choose that 2nd option (step 4/5, 1-2 manual typings in learning mode required) if the word is NOT too easy (to confirm with the AUTO-LEARN planting step6) and I would NOT want to ignore the word completely therefore.
I would only ignore words I know really really well (from other courses or DuoLingo.com portal) and I would know that these still have to be reviewed in all other courses (or are on ignore there already).
So it’s just a middle step.
The other point which has been already asked on the forums:
Is there any way to use a test out in learning-mode with only focusing on manual typing / recalling?
I do not need that for learning Portuguese, but I could probably use that level/course wide for intermediate-advanced English courses.
Knowing the word one time (typing it in the text box) on step0->step1 moves it to step6.
But you have to know it correctly one time, otherwise you follow the normal step1->2->3->…step6 learning process (including multi-choice, tapping, audio, and finally at the end typing/recalling).
This could tremendously help me to find intermediate/advanced English courses and filter / learn vocabulary, which
- I do not know 100% (not that easy)
- testing out words/phrases level based
- adding a 2nd layer before step6 and reviewing those words, which I am only 50-70/80% sure
-> adding a typing step5(+6) might help to hammer those more difficult words into my head
Quite easy words I know well I would probably just IGNORE (omitting future word reviews), instead of setting those words to AUTO_LEARN.
I think I have no interest to use Memrise English courses and larger vocabulary lists (e.g advanced C1/C2 words, 5000 frequency, B1-B2 intermediate, etc.) if I can not test out and filter only the words, where I am really in the need of to learn / improve.
For one course which had no levels but only a hugh vocabulary database I used the global ignore feature, where you can select-/de-select words globally. It took ages too load that list…
But that does not help you for “testing out words/phrases” what you really know and what not.
The other fact is that it works only with this course-type.
Other courses which are structured level-wise are more time consuming to go into the level ignore list.
You have to do that for each level.
Usually I do not do that in that “ignore selection window” and I only use the word IGNORE function in the question test box pages when the word is presented the very first time.
