Spaced Repetition Mode

Spaced repetition is a learning technique that incorporates increasing intervals of time between subsequent review of previously learned material.

Students learn words more quickly when they are studied a few times over a long period of time rather than studied repeatedly in a short period time.

AccelaStudy helps you focus on the words you don't know rather than the words you have already mastered.
