Frequently Asked Questions
What are flashcards ?
A flashcard is a card intended to be used to memorize vocabulary. Each card bears a word or a sentence on one side and its translation on the other side. So let’s say you want to memorize the word for flower in Italian. The card will show you the word flower. You will have to remember that the word for flower in Italian is fiore.
When you use a flashcard application for smartphone or tablet, if you get your answer wrong, the application will show you that same card more often; if you remember the word correctly, instead, the card will appear less often during your study sessions. This very effective learning technique is based on a principle called Spaced Repetition.
Which flashcard apps can I use ?
There is a wide range of flashcard apps you can use on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Most of them are free and allow you to import flashcards through a file, usually in a csv or txt format.
