studying different courses at once

Hi, I love memrise and have, like everyone else, already improved my Chinese a lot which is great since I am going to study for real soon. A great confidence booster! I was wondering though, I started the mandarin survival study and HSK 1, and afterwards noticed that memrise also had courses made from the books my Uni uses. Now, I would like to combine them, that is, study both the vocab in the Uni books and the mandarin survival (as I would like to have a sturdier base and the first two courses are really well set up!), but I was wondering if memrise automatically eliminates double words/characters from my gardens? So, if I have already planted and harvested i.e. 你好 in one garden, will I have to learn the same words again in another?

  • no - you don't learn those words again.   They will already be in your long term gardenfor the new course.

  • Is this always true? I completed mandarin survival with characters such as 厂 coming up very early and fully learnt. However, when started the restaurant course, it would appear again as not learnt. I suppose (unfortunately) it is possible there are duplicate entries of the same words in the main database.

  • good point - actually the restaurant course is an exception, and jacob.s does make a comment to the effect that he created duplicates of certain items to help total beginners - the idea was that this course could work as a total introduction. But in general there should be very few duplicates in the system and we are eliminating the remaining ones all the time.Hope that makes sense,Ben
