Each of the word lists in Drops are given a lot of thought. We strive to choose relevant, high-frequency words for each of the topics we teach. The thing is, language learning is highly personal. This means not every word is going to be right for you.
Tailoring the words you learn to your interests and preferences is an important step towards mastering the language. That’s why we have an “ignore words” feature in Drops. If you don’t think learning “knitting”, “backpacking”; or “word processor” is right for you, you can choose to ignore these words so that you can focus on the ones that are.
So how do you Ignore Words on Drops?
Option 1: When you first see a word, you’re given the option to add it to your learned words or ignore it. If you know right away the word isn’t a good fit, just drag it up towards the ignore icon.
Option 2: If the word felt right when you first learned it, but now you know there’s a good chance you won’t need it, setting the word to ignore is easy. Navigate to the Word Collection tab and tap the icon on the right. The word will be hidden and won’t come up while you study.
