Unlike most traditional learning materials based on pre-defined, standardized and let's admit it: boring texts, we think that you should read only the stuff that you love: eBooks, blogs, articles and news in the desired language. In each of these contexts and on any chosen device, you should have translations of unfamiliar terms “at the touch of a fingertip”.
Words that you have once translated, will be available to you always (read as “from any of your devices”) and they will go into your own, private dictionary. The information about the context where you encountered a given new word will also be synchronized among the applications and devices. There is no doubt we understand and remember so much better words in context.
Based on the texts you read, the words you translate, and lists of word frequencies, Zeeguu will use machine learning to build a model of your current vocabulary in the target language. Applying this model and using spaced repetition, you will receive personalized exercises that will help you learn, practice and retain the new words, ranked according to their importance.
Mircea will give a workshop about Zeeguu at EuroCALL 2020 which will be held online.
