“Al rescate” is Spanish for “to the rescue.”
Some of you may have noticed my lack of posts in the past couple of weeks. My work life and my home life conspired to consume any free time I had so that I could not even study new Spanish or Greek material, let alone write about it. I did manage, with the help of Mnemosyne, to maintain what I had already learned so that I was able to pick up where I left off. That little bit of maintenance did the job fantastically!
Earlier tonight I was able to continue in my Spanish book right where I left off. I did not need to go back and review what I had learned previously. In fact, I think I was better off than I would have been had I studied two nights in a row because no matter how crazy things were for me, most days I could still find 20 minutes to study with Mnemosyne.
I recommend that anyone who is learning a new language use a Spaced Repitition System like Mnemosyne, Anki, SuperMemo, or similar.
Do you use a different SRS program? Leave a comment and tell me about it.
