Worddio's methodology

It really is this easy to memorize words

Based on in-depth studies of linguists, foreign language teaching specialists and teachers themselves, the Worddio method is a symbiosis of the two most popular ways of learning new words. These are listening repeatedly to the correct pronunciation of the word by a native speaker and the use of flash cards. The challenge being to read the word in one language, then remember it in the new language. Worddio's resulting combination of these successful practices lets you listen to a predetermined number of pairs of the same words in the student's mother tongue, then in the new language that they wish to learn. We have tested the Worddio method with nearly 300 students and they all confirmed that memorizing new words was faster and easier.

The project is aimed in two directions, a mobile application aimed at people who want to enrich their foreign language vocabulary and a platform targeting teachers and language schools. The Worddio mobile app offers over 270 000 words and phrases recorded in 34 languages by native speakers and all arranged by levels and themes. Worddio is a great help for anyone who is studying a foreign language and wants to remember new words.

Using the platform, language schools and teachers have access to all the words and can sort them into groups according to the materials that they are teaching, lesson by lesson. After organising the words, the lists can be easily moved to the app so that the students have instant access to their new words, according to the lesson that they are studying. The platform, combined with the application has become a powerful tool for language schools to help students learn new words more successfully.

The Worddio project has been approved and evaluated as an innovative project under the Operational Program for Innovation and Competitiveness of the EU in 2017.

Camille Chevalier-Karfis


I am a big fan of “smart” flashcards.

"I am a big fan of “smart” flashcards. On one side, write the English word, just as a backup, and to test yourself. On the other side, write the word, then the word in a short sentence. Make the sentence close to “home” – use real people / facts in your life, it will help your brain remember it better. Camille (together with her husband Olivier) runs the website French Today where she blogs and offers a series of products and services to help you learn French. She has been teaching French for 19 years."

In my experience as a learner and teacher, the stronger one’s mastery of the sounds and “flow” of the language

"In my experience as a learner and teacher, the stronger one’s mastery of the sounds and “flow” of the language, the easier it is to pick up new vocab and expressions through simple listening and interaction. You can memorize an entire dictionary of vocab on paper, but that information is useless if you can’t recognize the sounds of those words in real speech or wrap your mouth around their articulation when trying to express yourself."" Idahosa Ness is the creator of the Mimic Method and Flow Training. He teaches people how to sing, rap and mimic foreign languages with a perfect accent."

It’d have to be repetition.

"It’d have to be repetition. Whether they use a strict SRS (Spaced Repetition System) or not, reading, writing, and repeating words out loud until they are set in memory is a simple but powerful way to learn new vocabulary."" Catherine is the founder of the Women Learn Thai blog where she shares how she makes her way through the Thai language and culture. She lives in Bangkok."


Albert Wolfe


There’s just no way around memorizing a bunch of words.

"If I had to give one vocabulary learning tip, it would be: There’s just no way around memorizing a bunch of words. So put the words where you’ll see them as often as possible: on a wall, in a notebook you carry around, on your computer desktop, etc. That way you can get in more review “reps” and memorize them more easily."" Albert Wolfe is the author of various books. Among them: Chinese 24/7: Everyday Strategies for Speaking and Understanding Mandarin. He also teaches English at the Peizheng College in Guangzhou, China and runs the blog Laowai Chinese"

My personal favourite however is learning languages through creative storytelling.

"For some people, using flashcards will work best, while for others writing down new words or using a vocabulary trainer app will do the trick. My personal favourite however is learning languages through creative storytelling. Andre Klein, born in Germany, is the writer behind the great Learn Out Live blog and several books on how to learn German like: Learning German Through Storytelling."

Consider learning vocabulary through audio materials.

So I think a good vocabulary-building method is a method that keeps you motivated.

"I have encountered many vocabulary-building methods and I think a lot of them are great and very effective to a certain point. And many of them seem to work in the beginning but then most language learners come to a point that is really hard to overcome. And I think that is the main problem. You can use the best learning materials and the best methods but if you are not motivated anymore – no method will work. So I think a good vocabulary-building method is a method that keeps you motivated. Lucas Kern is the founder of Leicht-Deutsch-Lernen.com, where he offers several products to help you learn German while having fun."

The Five Steps For Learning Vocabulary

"The Five Steps For Learning Vocabulary Step 1: Listen and repeat. Step 2: Determine meaning from context. Step 3: Create a mnemonic device. Step 4: Write the word onto a flashcard. By hand. On cardstock. Step 5: Use the new word right away, even if it’s the first word you’ve learned in that language. Mark Thomson is a self-taught, fluent speaker of Russian (currently living in Ukraine) and the creator of the online course Russian Accelerator, as well as the chief consultant for the course Japanese Mastery Method."

I write all my new vocabulary words on a piece of paper that I always keep in my pocket.

"Here is my vocabulary building tip, which I used to learn Thai, and am still using today to continue to improve. I write all my new vocabulary words on a piece of paper that I always keep in my pocket. I pull it out when I have any free time – waiting in line at the store, riding a bus, standing in an elevator, etc. – and use it to practice.
