Users commonly use devices such as smartphones, smart speakers, smart displays, etc. to discover or search for meanings of words, terms, or concepts. This disclosure describes techniques that enable users to set reminders and alerts via their devices regarding words and/or concepts that they intend to learn. Per techniques of this disclosure, when a repeat query from a user about a word or concept is detected, the user is asked if they would like to set a reminder for the word or concept. After the user sets the reminder, the user is provided with a reminder question or additional information regarding the word or concept at a suitable later time. The reminder setting can be turned off by the user, or can be turned off automatically after a certain number of correct responses from the user.
