I’ve been using the fancypants Power version of japanese.io for about three months now and I like it. Since my executive functioning sucks, I’ve found it really useful for all the bookkeeping tasks that make language learning hard for me. The day before yesterday, they rolled out a new SRS service.
Two days is still way too soon to judge, of course. I don’t know why, but it doesn’t feel like I’m learning when I use it. The words aren’t sticking like they do here and in my Anki decks. I think it might be because JIO’s system just shows each flashcard once a day, whether you get it right or wrong. I don’t know.
I don’t mean this to knock the site, which is wonderful. In fact, I think this is more of a me problem. But I’m excited to see what JIO will do to improve this service. I think it’ll be a great place to keep learning vocab even after I hit level 60 here.
Has anyone else tried using this new thing? Any thoughts?
