Boosting language acquisition with cognitive science

Brainscape drives home your language learning abilities using Intelligent Cumulative Exposure (ICE). This is a system of incrementally introducing concepts of gradually increasing levels of difficulty, in the context of REAL sentences, while also repeating the tough concepts at the right intervals of time based on your confidence levels.

This might seem like the logical way to go about teaching a language but there are NO apps that apply the simple ICE method. Why? Because creating a comprehensive curriculum based on this method takes WORK, and most app developers are more concerned with flashy software than with actual learning sciences.

UNTIL NOW.

Brainscape’s flashcards app helps you learn faster

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our"secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of German verbs at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
