Note - This is a discussion that broke out from the thread exit plan for isolated vocabulary.
"Standardized English exams like the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) that almost every foreign student who has ever wanted to study in the U.S. has to take are a big business and essentially operate like monopolies. As far as I am aware, Duolingo is the first startup to take these standardized tests on directly."

If you do isolated vocabulary study, like wordlists or SRS's, do you have a plan to wean yourself off it? I was surprised a few years back when I posted this in the now defunct anki forum that many people plan to continue this type of study for the rest or their lives. Please tell us what you plan to do about this here.
