Quizlet is a flashcard site and free app. You can use it to learn and quiz yourself on vocabulary or anything else.

Here’s one I made with famous quotations: Quizlet on Quotations

You don’t have to do it in this order, but these are your options:

1. Cards: This is where you learn the terms. You can change the style/format. Below is the “Flip” style. Underneath that is the “Flow” style. You can also turn the audio off/on, see only the term, only the definition, or see both sides at once.

2. Learn: Here, you are given either the term or the definition, and you have to type in the other. You can choose to have the audio on/off:

3. Speller: Here, you hear the term, or the definition, and you have to type in what you hear. It’s to practice your spelling. If you get the spelling wrong, it will tell you how you misspelled it. You can change the speed of the audio.

5. Scatter: A different kind of comprehension quiz — you drag the term onto the correct definition. If you’re correct, both with disappear.

6. Race: This is the final quiz. You have to type in the term (or definition) before the card disappears. If you can’t, the game will pause and the correct answer will appear.

You can create your own flashcard sets, and you can also search the site to find sets that other people have made and add them to your dashboard folders, so you can study them anytime.

You do have to sign up to create cards or save your progress, and you can do this with Google, Facebook, or with an e-mail address.

The mobile app is good, too.
