Studying on Quizlet

Quizlet offers seven different ways to study — five study modes and two games that can help you review whatever you're looking to learn! It's free to study sets (and sign up if you want) on the Quizlet website, iOS app or Android app.

Teachers can also get all of their students engaged with our classroom game, Quizlet Live!
 

To get started with a study session, choose a study mode at the top of the set page by selecting the icon.

 

Quizlet's study modes and games

Learn 

Learn mode takes the guesswork out of studying by creating a personalized study plan based on your familiarity with a study set so you can master everything you need to know.

When studying with Learn, Quizlet will prompt you with different types of questions — flashcards, multiple choice and written. As you answer questions correctly, you'll start to see harder question types (written, flashcards) more often than easier question types (multiple choice). 
 

Flashcards

You can use Flashcards mode to review terms and definitions or questions and answers on the Quizlet website and mobile apps, just as you would paper flashcards. 

It's easy to customize your study session by viewing your terms in a random order using Shuffle or enabling text-to-speech (TTS) audio. 
 

Write

Write mode keeps track of how well you know your terms and definitions and what you miss so you can focus on that content later in a study session. 

Similar to written questions in Learn mode, Write grades your answers and shows you questions you answered incorrectly throughout a study session to make sure you master your material. 

Spell

Spell reads a term or definition aloud using Quizlet's text-to-speech (TTS) audio and prompts you to type what you hear. 

This study mode works well for studying a new language or practicing spelling and pronunciation in your own language. As Quizlet offers TTS audio in 18 languages, you can use Spell to study a wide variety of languages and content. 

Test

Test mode provides an opportunity to see how you might perform on a test you take in class. You can quiz yourself with different question types, depending on what works best for you or how your teacher prefers to administer exams. 

Match

When playing Match, you'll race against the clock to match your terms and definitions as quickly as possible. 

Quizlet keeps track of high scores so you can compete with friends and classmates for the top score!

Gravity

Each correct answer in Gravity gets you one step closer to the next level. Type your answer quickly before the asteroid hits the planet. As you progress, the asteroids will fall at a greater speed.
