Improve your vocabulary every day
A bigger vocabulary goes the distance in helping you communicate more eloquently with peers and superiors; it can help you feel more confident in professional and academic environments; and BE a better, more efficient, and articulate communicator overall. Vocabulary is the building blocks of language. Become a master of yours!
Benefit from a study system that uses Brainscape's unique Confidence-Based Repetition process and customized flashcard repetition algorithm to help you learn in the fastest, most efficient way that is customized for YOU.
Plus, being accessible via Brainscape’s web and mobile app for Android or iOS, you can sneak in vocab practice anytime and anywhere, empowering you to learn as many new words a day as you can manage (while also reviewing the words you previously learned).
How does Brainscape help you learn faster and remember for longer?
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 vocabulary at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
