About the Byki SystemByki, formerly "Before You Know It," is a 3-Step, rapid learning system employing spaced interval repetition.

Byki is the fastest, most direct path to that goal. Byki takes users through three simple learning steps to memorize words and phrases in a new language, including their meanings, representation, and proper pronunciation, in the shortest possible time.
