Improved Flashcards/Study Methods?

I've been studying German for 3 years in school now and I love this site. But, I feel like there's no good way to just generally study vocabulary. If you want to study specific vocabulary, you have to sort through your previous lessons and go to exactly the spot where you need to work on.

Could a better flashcard system be added, that allows you to select words to study from your words list?

I'm really looking for general ways to review previously learned vocabulary on its own, without "Strengthening Skills" or using the current flashcard system, which doesn't get the job done :/

Can we do this, Duolingo?

I would also be interested in this change, and would support it

I would suggest using Memrise. It is mentioned on Duolingo very often. I just recently signed up for it and deeply regret not doing so earlier. Someone has already set up a German Memrise course that contains all of the vocabulary used in the German Duolingo course and it's organized by lesson. This single course will fulfill your needs, but there are tons of other courses on Memrise that I've found interesting or useful as well.

there should be the ability to have flash cards for all nouns and verbs for each level. I have found that most words I learn to spell pretty easily but others I struggle with. I plan to write out my own flashcards but that takes paper. The program doesn't seem to recognize which ones I'm having the most trouble with.

This is a big thing I've noticed as well, Duolingo doesn't seem to recognize which specific words I'm struggling with, therefore, my studying isn't as effective as it could be.

I use Quizlet. Every so often I collect the vocabulary I have accumulated (I keep every word) and add it to a Quizlet list and simply grind it until I have it down.

Yeah, I use Quizlet in school, and I thought of using it for Duolingo but I have like a 942 or-so-word vocabulary atm, it would take a long time to get it together on Quizlet

That's true, however if you're going to spend a lot of time on something that would be a good thing to do it on.

I use Quizlet too. You may be able to simply search for other people's Duolingo sets. I have a few for French and Spanish.
