  2. Select a vocab stage.
  3. Click play.
  4. Discover your first three words.
  5. Your goal will be to learn each word‘s meaning (EN) and pronunciation (in pinyin, PY).
  6. You will be asked to enter each new word’s meaning and pronunciation two or more times, depending on how quickly you memorize the word.
    • When you answer correctly, you’ll hear the word’s audio auto-play so you can memorize its audio as well.
    • If you get confused, and enter a word’s pinyin instead of its meaning, or vice-versa, a pop-up will let you know you’re not entering the expected answer
  7. Once you learn a word’s meaning (EN) and pronunciation (PY), you unlock a new word.
    • The words you just learned are sent to your reviews. They are added to your queue in a logical and optimal manner for you. Learn more about reviews
  8. The new word you unlocked will be shown in a pop-up so you can see its definition and pronunciation first. If you didn’t see it long enough, just press enter, and learn it at your pace.
  9. If you give several good answers in a row, your multiplier will increase and you’ll win more points per good answer.
