Learn it fast
Use the Byki Quick Start lists to learn critical words and phrases early. All Byki vocabulary lists feature images, native speaker pronunciation, progress tracking, and SlowSound™ technology to help you understand every nuance of the spoken terms.
Lock words and phrases into your brain with a proven 3-step process.
Preview It - See the target-language term and its meaning together, to begin the process of learning them.
Recognize It - Recognize the target-language word or phrase and provide the meaning in the native language. Recognize It can have a self-reporting mode, in which users must think of the answer, and a written mode, in which the answer must be typed.
Produce It - Provide the target language word or phrase upon prompting. Like Recognize It, this step can also have both a self-reporting mode and a written mode.
Know it forever
To ensure that you'll keep everything you learn in your long-term memory, Byki's Learned Items feature keeps track of your progress by recognizing the material you learn quickly and taking note of those items that give you more trouble. Using its Intelligent Refresh system, Byki helps you review the items you might forget along the way. If you're having difficulty with an item, it's refreshed more often. Other items are seen less frequently.
You can also check your progress with Byki's comprehensive testing options, including written, listening comprehension, dictation, and more. Additional games and activities will provide a fun way to cement your knowledge, while pronunciation practice will help perfect your accent.
