Back:

This forces active recall of words in such a way that only one answer is possible and doesn’t require a lot of time to set up.

Give it a go!

P.S. This is kind of a follow up to this post, where I was mooting possibilities for active recall flashcards. Didn’t think of this back then though.

  1. I been doing the exact same thing in Japanese and it’s been working great. I find that I can think of the word in English or Japanese and picture the kanji/meaning/etc without any problem.

    • Hey, sweet 🙂 I need to remember to keep a notepad nearby when reviewing because if I don’t write characters out occasionally I tend to forget how to write them (reading is still no problem). Don’t know if you (or anyone else) has found that?

      • Yeah definitely, I write out the clozed out word, I think it helps solidify them. Especially if it’s a got a character I don’t see to often, reading isn’t a problem though.
