  1. I want to be able to type my translations when testing my memory

    It feels to me that I need to actually write the word translation every time I recall its meaning, instead of just rating how easy or difficult it was. This would make it more probable that the word sticks in my mind for longer.

    • Generative & scaffolded practice

      I'd like the tests to require me to do something with the word/phrase - type it, say it, write a sentence with it, post something about it to twitter, etc. I'd like the tests to be progressively more difficult, e.g. from recognition to production and for the difficult to increase in relation to my performance

      • Play the pronunciation automatically when doing the quiz

        Whenever Duolingo asks for a certain word, it plays the sound for it. This way my memory gets comfortable with both the sound and the spelling of the word at the same time. It would be great to see this in Lexicum too.

        • get corrected when I misspell a word

          When I look for a word that the dictionary cannot find, possibly it could make corrective suggestions.

          • have browser addon for contextualized word search

            I'd like to have an integration of Lexicum with the browser. This way when I read an article and encounter a word I don't know, I can right-click it and add it to my wordbook from the context menu. This is something similar to what Buffer offers:
            http://screencast.com/t/m766rgNoM
            This saves me keeping Lexicum open in a browser tab and copying the word to the clipboard to paste it in the Lexicum tab.

              • short stories

                I think the short stories must be helpful on the base of current affairs and different kinds of news like spots, movies, arts and the things their worlds respectively keep on repeating with easy understanding.

                • Show users when they are in an activity streak

                  You probably know that learning is about habits and persistence. That's why it is good when apps help with maintaining continuous motivation. Duolingo has one good way of doing this: through tracking activity streaks and letting people show off with their achievement in persistence. It's nice to immerse into the race and one day realised that in the meantime you've learned a lot. It would be great if Lexicum had a way to show how many days or weeks in a row I've practiced my vocabulary.

                    • There is little control over what is quizzed.

                      If you could allow the user to check words that they want to be quizzed on, that would be a great help.

                      If you showed a multiple choice of 5 words on the left and 5 meanings on the right, then have user match correctly, that would be nice.

                        • Additional feature for easy learning of synonyms

                          It would be very helpful if I could save a word and thus get a list of all its possible translations and meanings I want to memorise in a certain langugage. For example type "try" in English and save the list of all the contextual Spanish translations.
                          It would be an easy way to learn synonyms and be able to make the difference between single meanings/connotations of these synonyms.

                              If you allow me to make just a couple of observations.
                              Since each and every foreign language learner tries to compare his/her mother language (L1) with the language of acquisition (L2), semantically and structurally, he or she eventually falls into the trap of attempting to transfer every construction into his own language. From psychological prospective a learner will have the tendency to avoid a structure which is not familiar to him/her, which is perfectly normal. But this approach can also have a harmful effect on the language learning process. Often, there is neither equivalence nor Tertium…

                                          I'd like to be able to add images to the words I collect and for these to be used to help promote/test recall in the flash cards
