Flashcard tool for mobile app
I just found the flashcard and word review tools on the Duolingo website; I hadn't known about them until now because I always use the mobile app. I think the flashcard tool would be a great addition to the app so we can review our words on the go!
Please, Duolingo, add flashcards for those of us without a home computer!
A great idea. Even a small, seperate, flashcard app so I can flip through it while I sit on the bus.
Have a lingot.
I would love to see this functionality in the mobile app too! Even a simple list look up with major word forms, especially for verbs, would suffice.
Just in case someone is still interested in this, I've made a simple mobile app for this. It shows your list of known words (same as in "Words" section) and allows to test yourself using flashcards (same as in "Review flashcards" section), it also works in offline. To login, use same credentials as for Duolingo site. (Your login and password are sent only to Duolingo servers)
Wow, this is amazing! Exactly what I've been scouring the internet for Thankyou!
I'd like to see the flash cards on the app as well as the audio of the word/phrase to help with the recall
Anki flash cards are more powerful and flexible than Duo's and they work on mobile. In fact, you can sync them across platforms.
You can build your own deck or download a pre-built. You can add audio, images or movie clips to cards. You can adjust the refresh rate on individual cards on the fly or let the anki algorithm manage it for you.
I use a pre built deck of the one thousand most common words in French. I built another deck for verb tense conjugation plus a deck of Sitesurf's comments, selected about.com bits and interesting Duo examples.
I have my p.c. anki set up for type to answer which means when it flashes the front card, it waits for me to type in the answer which is then matched letter for letter with the front card. The default setting which is better for mobile is just to display the cards rather than require typed in answers.
Check it out. See if it suits your purpose.
Anki sounds a lot like Memrise, which is brilliant for this, available for Android and Apple (as well as online), and has ready-made decks for a lot of Duolingo courses. And is free, of course.
But I don't think it is a simple matter on Memrise to add movie clips, rap rhythms, melodies, animations, images or whatever helps you remember the material.
Thanks for the suggestion!
That is a really good app; I'm still only 60% of my way through the Italian course, though, so I don't think the pre-built decks will have only the words I know. I'll definitely try Ankisrs for my Digital Media Arts classes, though!
Me too, yes, please! I would really like to have flashcards in the Duolingo Android app.
Came here to ask for exactly the same thing ! I know there's many more solutions for flash cards out there, but a flashcard functionality from Duolingo, where It updates itself according to what my performance is showing, is the best thing ever !
There are tons of other apps, but I don't use none, I'm not interested in making flash cards I won't use, Duolingo's offering can be different though, since I'm studying its courses, and sometimes I'm on the go and don't have the time to put my headphones up and start typing ! Just want to hover over the words I need to know (or get to know) today. Thank you so much.
I discovered the app yesterday and came here today to see if anyone had found a mass card creation shortcut. Doing them one at a time within the app is tedious and hideously time consuming when you've got hundreds or thousands of cards to input e.g. my entire Duolingo Italian word list.
Maybe this will be a feature of the website for Tiny Cards?
I got a new phone, can I pick up where I left-off with the old one so I don't have to start from the beginning?
