It works for studying concepts from almost any subject.

Quizlet really amps up studying and takes it to the next level. Students can review vocabulary words anytime they have a free moment and since the app stores lists, everything is there when it comes time for an end of the year exam. The talking cards are perfect for students with dyslexia who need alternatives to reading long definitions to learn the meaning of domain specific words. 

Quizlet can read the words out loud to you in a pleasing voice with good pronunciation and accent. You can “star” words that are most difficult to you, and review only those. The recording functionality might be particularly useful for the study of less-widely spoken languages. 

Quizlet is used in every imaginable setting and is essential to both education and business. Its purpose is to help students with things like memorization, recalling key concepts and basic practice in everything from vocabulary to math to language learning. Like StudyBlue, you can upgrade the app’s features by paying for Quizlet Plus, which lets you add photos to your flashcards and removes the app’s ads.

Quizlet English

Quizlet is an easy-to-use app which helps you learn vocabulary in lexical sets to help you learn and improve your English. The ability to remember the meaning of a word or recall a word is essential for the development of reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Quizlet provides learners of all levels with the opportunity to memorise new words and phrases efficiently and in a fairly engaging way in and out of the classroom. Once learners have their vocabulary set, they can complete a number of different study activities or games that help them to memorise the vocabulary, each with useful feedback on where they went wrong and what they got right. Learners learning other subjects in English, however, can create flashcards to help them learn key items.

How do Teachers use quizlet?

The key to making Quizlet effective lies in how teachers incorporate it into the classroom. Instead of making it a once-in-a-while component, establish Quizlet as part of your weekly lesson plans. Teachers can help learners to develop their vocabularies in and out of class. Teachers may find they spend less time explaining vocabulary items again and again, which can leave more time for skills development and use of the vocabulary.

Teachers can create diagrams for students to learn basketball positions for gym class, use Quizlet Live for friendly competition before the history exam, or create a series of flashcards to help students master their Spanish vocabulary.

How do Students use quizlet?

Students can access Quizlet from an app on their phone or from their computer, making it easy to continue studying outside of the classroom. Students can review vocabulary and memorise it efficiently and in an engaging way.
