In addition to TODO-list purposes, I am using RTM to learn vocabulary in foreign languages. To do so, I have created a list, e.g. “EN vocab”. Each time I read a new word in EN I would like to retain, I add a new task which title is the FR word (my mother tongue), in a note the EN translation (not to see it directly), with a weekly frequency. By this way, each day I have few words for which I try to remember the EN translation, I can check if I am right looking at the note. After several weeks, when I have the feeling to retain better a word, I increase the frequency to finally remove the repeated task.
This is a way to use RTM for drill-and-practice exercises.
I hope you will like this use.
