Vocabulary is one of the most fundamental parts of learning a language. Learning new words and keeping track of the words that you know is basic functionality which I am pleased to announce is now available on ISpeakHindi.com. We are in the process of improving it, so please try it out and send me feedback (nathan@ISpeakHindi.com).
Next time you log into ISpeakHindi.com, you are going to see something slightly different:
This tells you the number of words which have been “mastered”. Mastered means you have gotten it correct twice in the following quizzes:
Hindi Word –> English Word
English Word –> Hindi Word
Recording of Hindi word –> English word
Recording of Hindi word –> Hindi word
This will take you to a listing of word groups and lessons that have related word lists. Begin a list that you want. These words will be put on your list of words that you are learning. Also, on future lessons, look for the Vocabulary Quiz and Vocabulary List links at the top of the lesson. These will give you the chance to learn new words and increase your vocabulary count:
Then when you return to the “My Vocabulary” page you can see how you are progressing towards mastering these words:
In order for you to “master” the word and have it count towards your vocabulary, you need to get green in all 4 columns. The “green” field means that that you have completed that part of mastering. Yellow means that you only need to get the word correct one more time. White means that you need to get it correct two more times. Click on the header of each column to test yourself on these words. As you master a word, it will drop off the list. (Soon we will be adding a way for you to see the words you have mastered.)
As you use the Vocabulary Master from day to day, it will keep track of how your vocabulary has grown and graph it:
And you can see the breakdown of your current vocabulary by part of speech:
