  19. 19. The program will show you a term and you have to think of the answer, or even better, say it out loud. After clicking on Show the answer, the correct term will be revealed . 19
  20. 20. Now you can give your card a grade from 0 to 5, depending on how well you knew the answer 0 and 1 if you didn’t know or remember the term at all 4 and 5 if you knew straight away 2 and 3 choose if it takes significant effort to remember the answer 20
  21. 21. Cards you graded 1 and 0 come up during the same session and the next day repeatedly until you gan give them a higher grade Cards you graded 2 and 3 come up in shorter intervals (days, until you can grade them a 4 or 5) Cards you graded 4 and 5 take longer to show up again (weeks or even months, after a certain amount of shorter intervals) 21
  22. 22. You can improve your learning by editing cards you have problems remembering, or consider very important, by adding example sentences, pictures or even sound. 22
  23. 23. I hope these instructions were helpful . If you encounter problems, don’t hesitate to ask and I’ll see what I can do. Last but not least: Have fun studying and revising! 23
