I am creating a language learning app and am interested in sources/publications which offer statistics on retention rate of languages over time.
For example, I have data that my product taught students "basic introductions" in an hour. What can I compare this to?
The demographic is 12 - 18 year old students, but I am open to any statistics on this.
Something similar to how Rosetta Stone and Duolingo are able to quantify that their products achieve the same retention as "a semester of college".
I've found articles, such as this, that provide some details. But I am unsure of their credibility: http://www.languagesurfer.com/2014/08/12/how-many-vocabulary-words-a-day-should-you-learn/
