"Memory is the treasury and guardian of all things" - Cicero
German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus is famous for discovering the forgetting curve.
That is, over time, we forget what we've learned if we don't practice it.
This, of course, also applies to your language learning: words fade from your memory if you don't use them.
The good news is, he also discovered a phenomenon known as the spacing effect. Each time we review something we've learned, it sticks longer in our memory. After the 5th review, the forgetting curve approaches a horizontal asymptote: knowledge will stick for life.
At busuu, we've made it easier for you to review what you've learned so you never forget it.
All the vocabulary you have learned is now saved automatically in "My Vocabulary" in the "All" tab.
