Question: Instructions/Explanations for the new FlashCards system (TagalogDecks.com)?
 
Hi! Today I logged in for my daily flashcard studying and I noticed that the system has changed (as anticipated by jkos).
 
How does the new system work? I've seen there are no more Recently Wrong sets (which for me were very useful).
 
Is there a way to do the FlashCards from English to Tagalog instead of viceversa?
Or to decide how many new FlashCards you want to do every day?
 
What is the new SRS system like? What's the frequency that it uses when showing you new flashcards?
 

Thanks for all your work jkos!

It's a more pure SRS / spaced repetition flash card system, so if you get something wrong, it shows you that card more frequently. The idea is to space things out to learn more efficiently, prevent over-studying, and learn at repeatedly longer intervals until you've mastered a card. ( en.wikipedia.org/wik i/Spaced_repetition )

Very few people used that feature in practice...I could look into recreating it for the new system, though.
 
Or to decide how many new FlashCards you want to do every day?
 
You can review as many or few as you want. For best results, you should do all the cards that are currently "due" on the schedule given. To avoid overloading yourself, you should stick to only adding 5-10 new words/cards each day, since the added cards will need to be practiced again several times more in the future and it adds up quick.
 
What's the frequency that it uses when showing you new flashcards?
 
It's a traditional SRS algorithm where the time between reviewing flash cards gets longer the more you get it correct, or shorter if you get it wrong...the interval will vary depending on how much difficulty you're having learning a particular word. After getting a card right the first time, it will become "due" again within a couple minutes, then again in about 12 hours, then again in a day and a half, then again in 5 days, then in a half month, etc. Eventually if you're still getting the card right over a very long timespan and are confident you know it, you can mark it as "Mastered" and take it out of your queue.

@jkos Thank you very much for your response jkos and for all your work!
 
I always used the English-to-Tagalog option when doing my Flashcards because I simply found that it stuck better in my memory. I would be really really glad if you could recreate it for the new system.
 
On question: if you get a word right a few times and then you get it wrong once, will it reset to being due again after a couple minutes, just as if you were learning it for the first time? Or if not, when?

Also, @jkos , how do I tell the system how many new cards I want it to give me everyday?

@NinongRik
If you get it wrong it resets quite a bit, but it depends on how far along you are. If your interval is “once a month” and you get it wrong, it doesn’t reset to zero again, I believe it goes back to once a week (if I recall)…something proportional to the current interval.
 
“ how do I tell the system how many new cards I want it to give me everyday?”
 
You manually add cards (I think anki adds them automatically?). I like this because it gives a little more control. Once you have finished all reviews there is a blue button to “Add +5 Cards To My Active List” you can use to add five cards at a time.

I see the option to add words to the new decks but I only see the paperclip for sentences. How do we add the example sentences to the new decs? When I'm in the sentences deck and try to search, I can only see words but not their examples

@jkos Is there a way to move to Decks one of the lists already present in the old FlashCard section?
 
For example, let's say I wanna learn the deck called "Rice" that is found in the "Popular Lists" section of the old FlashCards. Can I tell the site to let me learn those words through the new Decks system by moving them to my "Tagalog Vocab" Decks list?
 
Kind of the "Anki export" feature but instead of Anki the new Tagalog Decks. I think that would be very useful.
 
Thanks!

Kumusta,
I agree I also prefer to learn from English into Tagalog. It's much easier for me to remember the words.
Salamat. Ingat ka rin.

Can we also get the option to just hear the tagalog word before we flip the card?
