For vocabulary learning «Indonesian Online» uses smart vocabulary cards that help you memorise new words. Our flashcard decks are based on the spaced repetition study principle, and can be used with the open-source software Anki. Anki flashcards are currently available for «The Indonesian Way», «AnekaBaca», «Anak Jalanan» and «Warung Sinema». Flashcards for the other materials will soon be added.
Student Members and Prime Members of «The Indonesian Way»have access to 1800 “smart” flashcards with text and sound covering all vocabulary items of the eight modules of «The Indonesian Way».
The flashcards are “smart” because they know which vocabulary items you have memorised and which one you still need to learn. Our “smart” cards employ spaced repetition – a learning technique that incorporates increasing intervals of time between subsequent review of previously learned material; this exploits the psychological spacing effect:
Spaced repetition is a simple study principle: I show you the front side of a flash card bearing a word in Indonesian. You then have to tell me what that word is, in English. If you got it right and it was very easy, I won’t ask you again in another two weeks; if it wasn’t so easy, I’ll ask again in a week; and if it was really hard, I’ll ask again tomorrow. In this way, you don’t have to spend time going over material you already know—the system adapts to the data you’ve acquired, Software like Anki (free and open-source) bring ease, sophistication, and much more power into the process of learning Indonesian vocabulary items.
