I joined six weeks ago and am just getting my head round how everything works, but still have some questions. Could anyone help???
A. The list of 25 “most important words”…
Are these my Lingqs with the highest frequency in my target language frequency list?
If so, I would like to give them priority and get them securely under my belt. They come up as Flash cards - but then I can’t find an easy way of moving straight on to “Cloze” and “Multiple Choice” to move them to a fully learned status. Is there one?
And is there anyway of printing these out?
(As a matter of curiosity, why is “Cloze” called this???)
B. Once I’ve moved to Stage 4 with a word or phrase, am I’m right in thinking that it moves into my learned words?
If so, does it come up for review with any form of spaced repetition?
If so, what are the intervals?
(I’m using LingQ in conjunction with Memrise and need to know whether I need to export my lingqs to Memrise, which has a sophisticated spaced repetition programme that dins vocabulary into you. However I like Lingqs way that puts initial learning into context - and I shall certainly stick with this as the first round of learning… and if I can then avoid having to export them that would be even better)
C. How do these points work??
It seems that I can ratchet up a lot of points by just reading something and moderately mindlessly marking the words I don’t know - but there seem to be less points awarded for the hard graft of actually learning the Lingqs or putting in a lot of hours of listening (I’m taking Steve’s advice of downloading Dutch podcasts from wonderful Sylvia and Fasulya - and listening while I’m cooking, or am in the car or even on the beach!)
Have I misunderstood the points system?
As a (much) older learner I am ashamed to say that I am still competitive!!
