With Wozzol you learn quickly and efficiently. This is how you learn vocabulary easily with Wozzol:
To memorize facts such as translations of words one of the main principles is spaced repetition. The most efficient way to learn a word is to actively recall the word from memory. For example, you may want to remember that the French translation of "unbelievable" is "incroyable". You are shown the word "unbelievable" and you have to come up with "incroyable" yourself. The learning effect of this action depends on how difficult the recall from memory is. When this is done in quick succession it is very easy and the learning effect is very small. The more time there is between the rehearsals the more difficult it is and the greater the learning effect is! If, however, it is no longer possible to actively recall the word, the learning effect is close to zero (the word is forgotten). So the trick is to rehearse the word just before you forget it. The program Wozzol will calculate for you when this is so that you learn optimally.
Your own words
There are two ways to create word lists:
Do it yourself - create your word lists yourself. This can be done by filling in all the words or by importing a list from a text file.
Standard lists - there are a variety of standard lists available from a variety of sources. You have only to select the right one for you.
You can also share your own word lists so that others can use your lists.
If you use the Chrome browser or use the Android or iPhone app you can have the words spoken aloud for you. This will help you learn more quickly and effectively!
Words live in sentences! At Wozzol all words can be put in a context sentence. This helps you remember the word. Context sentences can be created yourself or chosen from existing context sentences. Using context sentences makes learning easier: especially if you use funny or impressive ones.
Memorising a word can be seen as laying a ball on the beach. As soon as there is a little wind it blows away and, before you know it, it is gone. You can look at a mnemonic as a heavy anchor that you can attach to the ball. With a good mnemonic it is much easier to remember words.
The question is: how do you make a good mnemonic? You need to make associations with the word. Link the word to an image and other words. This is difficult at first, but if you do it often you will automatically become good at this. And then you can easily remember all the words!
In Wozzol you can give every word a mnemonic. This consists of two sentences. The first reminds you what your mnemonic is. The second sentence explains the mnemonic. With Wozzol you can request your mnemonic during a test. If you only request the first sentence the answer to your question will be seen as correct if you get it right. If you also request the second sentence, your answer will not count as correct, so you will be tested on the same vocabulary again soon.
Wozzol oversees the words that you should learn today.
Wozzol is an adaptive language teaching programme. It fits itself to your needs and is your personal learning mentor. It calculates exactly when you need to recall a word again: just before you would have otherwise forgotten it, so that you achieve the maximum possible learning effect.

When you are learning vocabulary you need the words to be retained not only in your short-term memory, but also in your long-term memory. It is therefore necessary to practice them regularly. A word that you focus on now, is seen as something that is temporarily important in the present. However, it won't be seen as important in the long-term, so this word will be forgotten again quite soon. A word that you regularly encounter will be seen as important and will therefore be remembered in the long-term.
Motivation is the most important thing when learning a foreign language. Without motivation you won't learn enough or regularly enough. Wozzol can help. You will receive a knowledge point for every word that you know for one day. Collecting knowledge points will take time at first. As you learn for longer periods and more regularly, it will become increasingly easy to gather knowledge points because the words are properly stored in your long-term memory. Wozzol sometimes gives you a compliment if you are doing well. This helps you keep your motivation high!
Varying your learning
Using Wozzol you can learn your vocabulary using nine different methods (the free version offers four methods). For the best result, vary your method of study.
Study methods: Write it, Learn in thoughts, Multiple choice, Write and in thoughts, Easy write, New keyboard, Correct order, and Magic writing
Write it - Write the word down. This is the most thorough method.
Learn in thoughts - The flashcard method. You are shown a word and must think of the correct answer.
Multiple choice - Choose out of a number of options what the correct answer is. Select first the initial letter and then the whole word.
Write and in thoughts - Use 'learn in thoughts' to remember the translation into your native language. For learning the translation into the foreign language, write the word.
Easy writing - use multiple choice to write the answer. This is a handy method for learning on a tablet or a mobile phone.
New keyboard - Write the word down with the help of a special keyboard. This is an alternative for the 'Write it' method that works better on a tablet or mobile telephone.
Correct order - Put the letters of the word in the correct order.
Magic writing - Write the words down. Special characters and spaces are automatically added.
In addition to these options you can print the vocabulary lists as flashcards in order to learn them on paper. You can also learn lists of words 'Oldskool'. This is a digital method of learning a vocabulary list by covering one side of the paper. This is a good way to do some extra learning for a test.
Difficult words get extra attention. You encounter them more frequently so that you can easily remember them. If you remember a word incorrectly it can get stuck in your memory. Here are a few tips to help you remember them correctly if this happens.
Invent a mnemonic.Think of a way to remember the word more easily. Does it remind you of something? Does it sound unusual?
Think of a picture to go with the word.Pictures are much easier to remember than words so it is useful to think of an image with a connection to the word in the foreign language. Also think about the spelling.
Write the word on a small piece of paperLook at it several different times. Write the word on one side of the paper, and the translation on the other side of the paper. Why not draw a picture with it as well?

A top app!! I've passed lots of tests with flying colours thanks to this app. My only criticism is that there are often a couple of mistakes in the vocabulary lists that you can add. Apart from that it's by far and away the best! I would definitely recommend it.
It's very good and I get lots of good grades. The only disadvantage is that I have to write lots of vocabulary down, but that is something I learn from.
Wozzol is a fun app to complement the Portuguese lessons that we take. It's good for practising words, phrases and conjugations.
