1. Why Phrasebook?

One of the language learning habits that many of us have in common is learn individual words instead of phrases or sentence patterns. And this way of learning is just a waste of time and effort. It simply doesn’t work. You can learn many words, maybe 10 to 20 new words a day. But you don’t know how to use them and you will forget them in a very short period of time.

If you want to improve your English quickly, you must learn the way native speakers speak/ write, learn the phrases they often use. That’s why learning English phrases with context is one of the most effective.

As you may have known, eJOY uses spaced repetition to calculate when you should review your words or phrases. This allows you to study the ones you haven’t learned more frequently than those you have already memorized.

To review the phrase I added to phrasebook, open Wordbook from the dropdown menu. Choose phrasebook. The newly added phrases would be among the new words (the grey ones). Choose play games to start.

Before you start doing the quiz, you’d better review the phrases with flashcards first. This helps you recall the grammar items that you may have already forgot.

Next, complete all the quiz within the time limit. If you get it wrong, that’s perfect. That’s why you need to review it now. If you get it 100% correct, well, eJOY will increase the time interval of the next study session.

And when you complete the study session, you can see how the fluency of your phrase increases and when you will be reminded to review it again.

I would love to hear your story about how you learn grammar, how you use eJOY to help you speak and write more fluently and accurately. And start learning grammar with eJOY now.
