As you learn a language, you will be exposed to hundreds, if not thousands, of new words. Learning and remembering them all may be a challenge, but it needn't be boring or difficult. Not with Byki Online: Library Edition, intended to provide a fun, engaging, and effective environment for language learning. Byki Online: Library Edition has been specifically designed to help you quickly and efficiently build a solid base of words and phrases, the basic building blocks of a language.

The Flash Card exercises available in Byki Online: Library Edition help you master the information in your lists quickly and easily. The Flash Card exercises contain various learning modes; however, not all learning modes may be available for all lists. The most common learning modes are:

  • Review It - Look through the list without guessing answers or being scored.
  • Recognize It - Use this exercise as an easy way to start off with a list or as a quick way to review a list that has been studied. Learn to identify the information on the cards by thinking of the information from side one.
  • Know It - Use this exercise to expand comprehension of the material in the list. Test knowledge by typing the information from side one of the card.
  • Produce It - Use this exercise after learning to recognize the information in the list and when ready to produce it, or as a quick way to review a list that was practiced before. Think of the information for side two of the card while seeing the information on side one.
  • Own It - Use this exercise after having studied a list for a while and to reinforce knowledge of it. Master the material in the list by typing the information from side two of the cards.

Byki Online includes the Intelligent Refresh system, which enables you to lock foreign language words and phrases into their permanent memory. Intelligent Refresh relies on a special proprietary algorithm that remembers the words and phrases you have already learned and how quickly they were learned, and spaces the prompts to recall them at just the right intervals to maintain a fun and comfortable level of challenge. Byki Online is the only language learning solution expressly designed to refresh and maintain your permanent memory.

Supplemental activities are available on the Activities screen in Byki Online: Library Edition. These are also designed to help you master the material in your lists. The available activities are:

  • Multiple Choice Recognize It - Confirm comprehension by matching the information from side two of the cards with the correct side-one information in a multiple-choice format.
  • Multiple Choice Produce It - Confirm comprehension by matching the information from side one of the cards with the correct side-two information in a multiple-choice format.
  • Pronunciation - Record pronunciation and compare it to the original speaker's.
  • Dictation - Hone listening skills and improve spelling by typing the words and phrases that are heard.
