How the vocabulary size is estimated?

The most accurate way to count someone's vocabulary would be to go through all words in the dictionary and count how many you knew. Instead, we check every N word in 2 steps which allows us to define it with about 20% margin of error. There are lots of factors that go into measuring someone's vocabulary size — for example, do you count "simple" and "simply" as two words or just one? We take a conservative approach and count the number of headwords (not derived words) which you are estimated to know in a standard dictionary.

The test provides an estimate of your actual vocabulary size. It certainly cannot be taken as a precise tool to measure a vocabulary size.

How to set notifications at a specific time?

Our notification reminders are dynamic. For example, if you tap on a reminder at 4:00PM, then next day it will be sent at 4:00pm instead of the usual time. We know this might be inconvenient, so we’re planning to allow to specifically set the time in settings.




How to turn off sound during the quiz or games?
