    • Include the Title in the "body" of an article.

      When importing an article from the web, the importer does a good job of distinguishing the body of the article from the title. The only catch is, we can't actually "readlang" the title! The title needs to be just as interactive as the body text. Thanks. :)

      • Option to switch off the video and only read

        Currently, if the text has video, the video plays along with the text. But if I want to read the text only, it is difficult. I can pause the video and read, but if I click any text for translation, the video will start from that place. An option to disable the video would be great.

        • the Japanese language course.

          It appears so far--with the one I've tried-- to translate the English words into English and the pinyin words into the same pinyin words which really isn't of much help. Perhaps having an English to pinyin and Pinyin to English translation instead?

          • Provide written tutorials instead of annoying videos.

            When instructions are written, we can proceed at our own pace. We can easily go back and review a bit that we didn't get first time. We can consult any part of it at our leisure.

            Videos just drone on and on. We cannot easily review any particular section. And they are boring.

            • Words with more added contexts go first in reviewing flashcards

              We know that words with higher frequency appear first when reviewing flashcards. But it would be more useful and intelligent to use the number of added contexts to a word and you review words that have more added contexts first. Because here is the thing. I read material on topics I'm interested in, and some vocabulary I see more often. And that vocabulary is essential to me more than the other, maybe with higher general frequency.

              • Please fix the problem in Chrome of loading the Edit Flashcard Window

                I know I can reload the page to allow "unsafe" scipts but it's annoying having to do this every time. I searched for a way to allow Readlang always to load these windows but it's looks like it has to be resolved on the website's end rather than the user's. It wasn't a problem when I first started using the site, so I'm not sure what changed, but it's definitely negatively effected my usage of the site. Thanks for reading.

                  I wonder if this is due to the external dictionary on the edit word panel?

                  Please let me know which language are you learning. And whether you have edited the default external dictionary.

                • Options to separate selected phrases

                  Sometimes I don't understand a phrase but I want each word in the phrase to be a separate flash card. Could it be possible, if a phrase is selected, to cycle through the options of selecting the whole phrase, having each word as a separate selection and deselecting all, as currently when you select a word followed by another word and then tap again it switches to a single word selection again. Also a selection delay of say 3 seconds before saving a flashcard so it doesn't save duplicates because you have been trying to select a phrase?

                  • Add the option of formatting the flashcafd so the word and the English definition are both on the front of the card

                    Love your site. Would it be possible for you to add the option of changing the format of the flash cards so that that definition and word are both on the front of the card? in my previous experience in learning another language the traditional format of answer on the back is too taxing and ineffective and unrewarding . I can't believe they made us make flash cards in this format during compulsory education

                      • Integrated dictionaries no longer seem to work with arabic script

                        The default dictionary for arabic no longer seems to work, and my attempts to add others haven't proven fruitful so far (e.g. http://www.almaany.com/en/dict/ar-en/{{query}}).

                        Any idea what might be wrong?

                        Thanks for the amazing site!

                        • Please add a dictionary form to the flashcards

                          For example I'm learning German. Nouns in German have one of three genders and to be able to use the word correctly, one has to know its gender. So when I'm learning words I need to learn their gender as well.

                                      You can review and edit translations for all your words and phrases on the Word List page: http://readlang.com/words

                                      If a word can have two different translations I either:

                                      - Add both translations separated by a slash – e.g. “phone / phonecall”

                                      or:

                                      - Add a minimal amount of surrounding context to the original word to make it a short phrase which is then less ambiguous and can have just one translation.

                                      Hope that helps.

                                      I hope this header is sufficient to describe the idea. I presume that this is a 'valid' learning technique?

                                        This was written in the settings section:

                                        "a translation appears above each clicked word, and the dictinary shows additional translations into English"

                                        Notice anything wrong there. It doesn't give me a lot of confidence in your product when something that would be flagged in any spellchecker is left on your site.

                                        • Learn the difference between å, ä and a

                                          When I am trying to do Swedish your program seems to think these are all the same letters. They are not.

                                          For instance, Readlang gives the same definition for håll as for hall. These are two different words.

                                          If the A1 lessons are so wrong how can I trust anything more difficult.
