Quickly Transfering Duolingo Words to Flash Card Program?

Hello! Is there a way to quickly move Duolingo words to a flash card program such as Anki? Entering the words one by one is becoming annoying.

September 29, 2013



I've been doing this by hand for the Spanish words, and found I actually learned quite a lot in the process of wording them as questions for the cards on Anki.

Flashcards supplement Duolingo very well, and I would recommend that approach to anyone.


Just to expand a bit, in the process of adding a word I will often look up the word on SpanishDict.com to see if it has any other meanings, and also to see if there are any prominent synonyms. Also, I'll note related words such as nouns formed from verbs and vice versa. Additional material like this can be part of the flash card.

It helps to be slightly obsessive. :)


I have been doing this for a while, too. Anki can be a good supplement for any language learning :-)


This was not the question



Just saw this posted on Twitter. There will be flashcards in the future on Duolingo :)


I usually copy the vocabulary table (via txt export/ plugin) to Excel (or any spreadsheet), use a web service to translate the table (Bing translate works), correct translation if necessary, import into Memrize via bulk entry. Works!


there is also an add in for chrome: Duolingo Vocab manager. It is a flash card program. You can load your words from Duolingo in a few seconds and learn the words . You can speek (switch the word from one language to the other) and give a period for testing the word the next time, if you give the right translation. For new words, you have to reload the whole database (a few seconds), but you lose your given periods for testing words.The add in works for all the languages, but when changing languages, you lose your given periods for testing words also. Probably it works on a tablet with the Chrome browser, but not with a smartphone. Also, you do not earn lingots or points.


I did make a copy with control c - control v to excel. You can click on a word in the first colon and then you go to the page for testing that word in Duolingo.

How can I use Bing translate for translating a colon? It should be fine, when i could translate to English, and also to my native language.


what export plugin?


No. There is no included functionality nor any API for outsiders to make it. On top of that, the vocabulary is loaded with a script, so you can't even parse it without evaluating the page first ...


Aww:( Ok, thanks for your answer!


It'd certainly be a useful feature for down the road at some point. Not that the folks who run Duo don't have enough on their hands already, feature-wise.


Have you looked at the available decks on Ankiweb?

There's no deck with the complete german vocabulary from Duolingo (at the moment) but one of those larger vocabulary decks might be a good place to start.
