This is a post from my old blog, from 2011. It’s part of a series of resurrected older posts that I still think are useful for language learning. This post is almost identical to the original.
Something I’ve been trying recently is a variant on what SuperMemo calls ‘incremental reading’, and which I arbitrarily name ‘L2IR’ (second language incremental reading). Essentially, rather than simply adding sentences to my SRS ‘blind’ (i.e. there’s no extra information in the card anywhere about the context), I’ve been using an extra field to copy-pasta the passage it came from.
