Type text flashcards only
As far as I can see, the flashcards currently combine both the original and target languages randomly (?). Because the type text flashcards are very effective, why not allow the user to choose type text only? (Or have I missed something?)
Here’s how it works (using the example of an English speaker learning French).
1 – easy mode:
The first time you see a flashcard it will show you the French version, and ask you to guess the English translation. Since it’s assumed you know English well, it seems pointless to type the English, and it’s faster just to click to see the answer.
2 – hard mode:
After you’ve successfully remembered the meaning of the word, the next time it is shown, it will show you the English and ask you to guess or type (in typing mode) the French. If you “Almost” remember, the card will be shown again in hard mode. If you remember “Not at all” the card will fall back to easy mode the next time it is shown.
Hope that makes sense!
Please let me know if you still think this behaviour should be changed.
Yes, you're quite right about typing in English. Thank you for the explanation as to how the words are shown. (Not random at all!) It's much clearer now.
