What is the basic idea behind Repetico?

 
Repetico is based on the Leitner algorithm. The basic principle of this algorithm is that information is repeated at different times in order to be able to remember it in the long term (also called distributed repetition system). The system of distributed repetition is a reminder method based on the forgetting curve of Ebbinghaus (see picture). Many see it as one of the most efficient methods of vocabulary learning.


The Ebbinghaus’ forgetting curve

The method assumes that information must be regularly repeated in order to be anchored in our long-term memory. Here is no arbitrary time meant, but there is an ideal time for repeating the learned. If you repeat too early, you lose unnecessary time; If you repeat too late, you have already forgotten and you have to learn again. Actually, the best time to repeat is when you're about to forget something.

This time is of course not easy to determine. In addition, it varies from person to person and depends on the noted information.

We have the following schedule for you by default:
