The SuperMemo application in brief

SuperMemo is a method of computer-aided learning based on research in long-term memory. The method has gained wide recognition and received numerous awards. It provides the learner with an optimum learning plan and repetition schedule, which allows to minimise the learning time with a nearly 100% knowledge retention.

SuperMemo and memory mechanisms

Non-deductive information requires repeating in order to be remembered. Statistically, a simple information item (like date, number, new foreign word) is remembered for up to several days without recalling it through usage, association or repetition. Successive repetitions tend to reinforce memory traces, therefore the intervals between repetitions necessary to keep information in the memory get longer.


SuperMemo effectiveness guarantee

Basing on the data from the learning process, SuperMemo assigns each information its current difficulty level and predicts how long you will remember it. Your next review is planned shortly before the expected moment of forgetting.


SuperMemo retention guarantee

With the Pronunciation Trainer in the SuperMemoUX application the speech you record yourself is automatically analysed in terms of stress, intonation, rhythm and other important articulatory parameters. Apart from the automatic assessment, amplitude graphs and spectrograms provide additional information about the correctness of the recording. You can also control the speed of the model native speaker’s recording.
