Add gender to Flashcards for gendered languages

When I'm reviewing words in the flashcard feature, it would be helpful to see the word's gender in addition to it's translation on the back of card becuase I usually need to memorize both!

Yeah Man I agree you on that. Gender should be added to flashcards of gender based and almost every language. Because I think almost every language is gender based.

Glad to have some support! If you're interested in this kind of thing, according to Wikipedia "The gender system is used in approximately one fourth of the world's languages." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammatical_gender

Ditto. Right now I have to 'visualize' female or male anatomy to a picture of the object in my head to help ;)

I do agree. It would be really helpful have GENDER on cards. And it would be interresting to have PLURALS too (at least for tricky langages as GERMAN). Thanks to people who are working on that for us !

This sounds like a really good idea! The gender are quite hard to memorize.

There is a French word of the day on FB. I've asked them to add gender but no luck yet.
