Over seven years as a student of 3 different schools, and for countless different classes in four separate languages I’ve made a grand total of 58 Quizlet study sets.
So what is Quizlet? It’s more than just a site you stumble upon when googling vocab lists and study guide questions. Quizlet is a brilliant website (and equally fantastic app) that has been with me since I was a brace-faced middle schooler learning about mitochondria for the first time. And I’m still loyal to my trusty Quizlet digital flashcards after all these years because it is just that good.
Here are a few of my favorite features:
1.Let yourself be lazy. My very favorite thing about Quizlet is the import tool they have to make creating study sets even easier. When creating a new study set, there is a magic “import” button that you can use to seamlessly transform vocab lists into flashcards in a blink of an eye.
2. No foreign language confusion. The worst part about studying a language is the constant inconvenience (and sometimes near impossibility) of adding accent marks. On Quizlet’s study set creation page, you denote at the beginning what language both the terms and the definitions are in, and panels of special character buttons will appear corresponding to the language. If the extra step of clicking each special character disturbs your flow, they also have keyboard shortcuts for many accent marks.
