  1. 2013.02.17 Vietnamese: Memorizing words by Anki-droid. (2)

This is my first recording of my trial to memorize large number of Vietnamese words - about 2000 words. My smartphone and Anki-droid serve well for that matter.

The first graph shows how many words are in my memory. Each line shows the number of words queued and scheduled for my recall memory. First two tall lines represents those words, which are not firmly engraved in my brain. The darkgreen words are those engraved deep enough. If I practice everyday, it's certain that more words will go into dark green area. According to this graph, I can say that I have about 100 words firmly memorized and 400~500 words are in good memory. 100 ~ 200 words are relatively hard to memorize.

Following is a graph which shows daily activity. Blue means new words, green words are those recalled according to the schdule. The red ones are those, which are very hard to memorize. Each day, I have to review about 200 or more words, and it took about 1 hour everyday.

"Record your progress" - that's one of the key success factor to a language learning.

      After several months of 'pause' on my Vietnamese, I'm recently starting a new Vietnamese project again - memorizing 2,000 words - to capture the real world issues in Vietnamese.

      You see my first project in Vietnamese was something like 'Failure', in that, I couldn't communicate even to the minimum level in Hanoi, in spite of all that 7 months of diligent study with textbook. My diagnosis to my failure was the 'short vocabulary'.

      To keep dialog, or to read some material, one need to grasp the basic words upto 2000 words/expressions... That's my guess.

      Even those 2000 words would be the bare minimum... you know.

      So I just started my new project 'intensive vocabulary lengthening project', using specialized tool for learning words - "Flash Cards!"

      The best of those tools I've tried was "Ankidroid".

      Anyway... my Vietnamese vocabulary... is slowly growing, and everyweek, when I open a random page of a vietnamese book, and I feel the progress - I understand more and more every week.

      Still far to be sufficient enough. I guess, after several more months of intensive vocabulary lengthening project, I'll be far more ready to communicate with Viet people.
