This app is a collaboration with the best-selling app Flashcards Deluxe, and is ideal for Japanese high school or university students, or adults looking to truly master English. This app contains approximately 2,700 advanced vocabulary to help you master standardized tests (TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS). It includes a Japanese translation, an example sentence (over 30,000 words of original content), and custom quiz questions.
Audio for all the contents is included as well. Also included is a custom quiz function which you can use and send your results to your teacher with via email. This app also automatically sends all items you miss often to a special “tough item” folder to make it easy for you to concentrate on them. What’s more is it features one of the most advanced Leitner algorithms on the market to help you learn more efficiently: you mark items you don’t know wrong and they come back more often, giving you the necessary exposure to master them. Items you mark correct don’t come back as often, so you don’t have to waste your time with items you already know. This method is proven by linguistics research to be the most ideal way to learn.
Mastering this app and our other general English app (which focuses on the most common 3,000 words of English) should lead to a very high standardized test score. Approximately half of typical vocabulary on such tests is general English. However, the other half of typical are very advanced vocabulary. Such vocabulary is in the 3,000-7,000 range. Beyond the 7,000 range, the words have less and less value for learners to get a higher standardized test score and in general, beyond the 7,000 range are words students should learn on their own through reading.
Therefore, we examined the 3,000-7,000 range, and any items covered by our general English app were removed, thus saving users time so they don’t have to study the same word twice. Then, easy words that correspond to Japanese loanwords were removed.
This study also took a very unique approach. It worked with a “lemma” list from the Corpus of Contemporary American English. So, the entry for the verb “walk” includes “walk”, “walks”, “walked”, and “walking”. Studying vocabulary in such a way is far superior than studying them separately. Clearly, a student does not need to study “walk” and then later on “walked”. However, this study took this even further because, in fact, a simple lemma list is not sufficient because sometimes the words that represents the lemma group (the “headword”) is NOT in fact the most common word. Take “spook” for instance. A native speaker knows that “spook” is extremely rare, but within its group a more common word exists: “spooky”. Thus, to provide learners with the BEST possible resource our team of four native English teachers examined the entire list manually for such instances, selected them instead of the headword, and wrote an original example sentence for it.
This app’s English contents were written by myself and researchers Ted Bonnah, Frank Daulton, Jean Paul DuQuette, and Phillip Montgomery, and by translator Jiyoung Kim.
We hope our app helps you improve your English!
