Who Uses Quizlet?
Anyone trying to memorize information can use Quizlet. It’s popular among primary and secondary school students (K-12), whether they’re learning in a classroom or learning from home. It’s also well known among university students, medical students, law students, and adult learners who need to memorize information—including those studying for standardized tests and trade exams.
Teachers also can use Quizlet to make study sets for their students. Instructors can upload and organize information that they want their students to master. Then they can invite their classes to access the study sets they have created.
Quizlet – Learn Languages & Vocab with Flashcards Mod Apk has even been used in private industry. For example, it has been used to train grocery store cashiers and for onboarding new employees at a software company.
Getting Started With Quizlet
Quizlet – Learn Languages & Vocab with Flashcards Mod Apk is available as a web app, as well as an Android app and iPad or iPhone app. To get started, you must create an account with an email address, username, and password; or by authenticating through Apple, Google, or Facebook.
Quizlet also asks for your date of birth, presumably to collect data on the ages of people using the app. No one checks whether it’s accurate, so it’s up to you whether you want to be truthful. The question would seem less invasive, however, if Quizlet simply asked for your year of birth instead of the full date.
Once you have an account, you can start creating your own study sets or looking for ones you want to add to your files. To organize your study sets, Quizlet allows you to make folders. You can also join a class if an instructor gives you a link and then access all the materials for that class.
Quizlet is essentially a flashcard app, so every item in a study set has two pieces: a question or trigger and a response. For example, if you’re learning a language—and Quizlet is a fantastic complement to any language learning app—you’d have the word in the new language plus its meaning in your native language.
Other kinds of learning might contain images. For example, let’s say you’re studying botany. The triggers might be pictures of different plants and the answer or response would be their names.
Making sets and editing them is straightforward. Quizlet – Learn Languages & Vocab with Flashcards Mod Apk supports uploading spreadsheets to make the process faster, if you already have study materials laid out in a compatible format. You can edit study sets that you make, but you can’t edit someone else’s set unless they allow it in the options for that set. You can, however, make a copy of a set (this function is labeled Customize), which you can then change to your heart’s desire.
Quizlet always gives you the option to keep your sets private if you don’t want anyone else to access them.
Seven Ways to Study
Quizlet – Learn Languages & Vocab with Flashcards Mod Apk gives you seven possible ways to study: 1) Cards, 2) Learn, 3) Write, 4) Spell, 5) Test, 6) Match, and 7) Gravity. The first five are available in the mobile app, whereas all seven are available in the web app.
Cards is a standard digital flashcard method where you cycle through your study set and try to memorize the information. The Learn option gives you a prompt and you select the correct response based on multiple choice options, with all the possible answers coming from your study set.
The option called Write shows you a prompt and you have to write the answer, rather than rely on multiple choice options. In Spell, you hear an audio reading of the prompt but don’t see it in writing and have to type out the answer. Spell doesn’t work for study sets that incorporate images or diagrams.
The fifth opinion, Test, gives you a quiz made with a variety of question types, including matching, multiple choice, and so forth. Note that this mode isn’t designed for formal assessment. Sixth is Match, where you see a bunch of cards on screen, half prompts and half answers, and you have to match the correct pairs. There’s a timer running so that you can turn it into a game and try to beat your best time or your other learners’ best times.
The last study mode, Gravity, also has a game angle. A prompt appears on an asteroid that appears to fall from the top of the screen, and you have to write the correct response before it hits the ground.
Language learners get some wonderful tools you won’t find in many other flashcard apps. For example, once you set the language you’re trying to learn, special characters appear when you’re typing so that you don’t have to frequently switch to a different keyboard. Additionally, the app can speak words aloud with the correct pronunciation.
We’ve tested for Romanian, Spanish, and English and found the pronunciation surprisingly good, with stresses usually landing on the correct part of the word and proper diphthongs and so forth. The voice doesn’t sound overly robotic, either.
The Problem of User-Created Study Sets
Although Quizlet – Learn Languages & Vocab with Flashcards Mod Apk typically contains excellent study sets, there’s always the problem that user-created content may contain errors or intentionally misleading information, or be problematic in other ways. It’s reasonable to have some worries about content, especially for parents or teachers of young students.
That said, the vast majority of errors we’ve seen in Quizlet are minor, such as misspellings or slightly outdated information. The app automatically filters content using quality scores drawn from user behavior, so better quality content is likely to rise to view whereas poor quality content should get buried. Additionally, you can report problematic content.
More importantly, you don’t have to use user-created study sets at all. If you only want to study using content that you’ve created, that’s perfectly fine.
Excellent for Rote Learning
Quizlet – Learn Languages & Vocab with Flashcards Mod Apk is a powerful study aid, one that works well in a variety of settings from traditional schooling to helping you master concepts from an online learning service. We like that you can make your own sets, share them, and find sets that others have created.
The free tier of service is very good, though it leaves out some of the more advanced features, which is really the point of digital flashcards in the first place. The Plus membership has become pricier in recent years, which may be a turnoff for those who have paid the much lower price for it in the past. If you can get past that, however, you’ll find that it’s still an excellent, Editors’ Choice pick for learning resources, even at the higher price.
Though limited in scope, Quizlet – Learn Languages & Vocab with Flashcards v7.28 Mod Ak is an excellent study aid (think app-based flashcards) for learning anything that relies on memorization.
