How to evaluate yourself while learning

When learning, it is really important to evaluate yourself in the right way. In Taalhammer you evaluate yourself, and in doing so you train our repetition algorithm, which learns how you learn. It calculates the optimal repetition date for a given word or phrase so as to speed up memorization.

You have 3 types of evaluation:

  • Easy: select only if you can say the word or sentence without errors and reasonably quickly without too much thinking.
  • Difficult: choose this if you don’t know the answer.
  • Almost is somewhere in between – use it for smaller mistakes.

Words and sentences that you rated “Difficult” you will repeat often, and those you rated “Easy” only occasionally.
