In today’s world and despite being very busy, it is not possible to participate in classes and training courses, and a suitable and complete substitute should be found for heavy and relatively expensive books. A substitute that is always available and can be used by all people.

and by touching the option (tap to see the answer) the translation of the desired word will be displayed.
After viewing the answer, two options will be displayed for you, “I knew” and “I didn’t know”.
If you have learned the word well and select the “I knew” option, the word will move to the next box.
If you select that I don’t know option, the word will remain in the first box.
In both cases, according to Leitner’s rule, you will not have access to the word until a certain time.
The next boxes are the same, with the difference that “every time by selecting the option I don’t know, the desired word returns to the first box”.
If you don’t know a word in the fourth step, the word goes back to the first box. Finally, the words after the fifth stage are placed in the learned box, in this case you can be sure that you have learned that word and it is in your long-term memory.
