Langavia Personal Dictionary in a nutshell


The Langavia Personal Dictionary application has been created for people who actively study a foreign language and is intended to facilitate the process of memorizing new words, phrases, and idiomatic expressions, thereby accelerating the progress of language acquisition in general.

But what does it mean to "actively study" a foreign language?

This means:
- to devote time (explicitly and on a regular basis) to the learning process;
- to have a genuine interest to actually know the language (or at least to bring this knowledge to a certain level).

Every one of us has our own reasons to study a certain language. We're not going to dwell on these reasons in detail, let's just say that our service will be extremely useful to you if you want to progress as fast as possible. Because without active increasing of your vocabulary, it'll be very difficult for you to progress in terms of language learning.

At the same time, the important thing to understand is that a language study is more like a marathon race rather than a sprint. It requires an integrated and systematic approach to your studies... plus discipline, of course.

What is the best way to use the Langavia Personal Dictionary app to get the most out of it?

Firstly, you need to understand that no one will learn the language for you, and this application is just an assistant in this regard. Our service can assist you in memorization of new foreign words, but these words for learning should be found by you yourself: books, movies, songs, communication, etc. (for more details on this topic, read the new words sources article).

Secondly, you need to get into the habit of devoting 15-30 minutes of your time every day to work with the application. You should not overload your brain, trying to memorize a hundred new words every day, the effect of this will most likely be negative (first of all, it will affect your motivation to keep on studying). Set yourself a goal to learn 5 new words a day - that's quite enough. And if this habit takes root, then 5 words a day will turn into 150 words a month and, accordingly, 1,800 words a year... how cool is that?

Thirdly, develop a habit to immediately record in your personal dictionary all unfamiliar words that come across to you on the way of mastering the language. Thus, your dictionary will be regularly built up and you will never find yourself in a situation where you have nothing to learn today. But if you see that there are still not enough new words, then you need to devote some time to working with materials where you can potentially find these new words. Thus, your goal of learning new words every day will spur you on to work through new unfamiliar material for you and thereby actively study and progress in terms of language learning.

So the daily algorithm for working with the application looks like this:
1. Replenish your personal dictionary with new words and phrases (you must have at least 5 new cards to start your training).
2. Learn five new words a day using the specially designed for that exercise.
3. Repeat what has been learned in previous days using repetition exercises.
4. Check if you have enough new cards in your dictionary for tomorrow's workout (and if there are not enough of them, go back to step #1).

Observing this simple algorithm, you will undoubtedly progress from day to day - the only question is how disciplined you are and how strong your desire to know the foreign language you study.

Wish you lots of success!
