It's great for vocabulary terms, especially if you're learning a second language. Flashcards are not expensive, and you can take them anywhere. But there are some online flashcards programs you can use, and my favorite is the anki, he has versions for all operating systems, for mobile and even a web version, but there are many others software.

If you wanna know more about flashcards, there are many articles here in Medium and videos on YouTube teaching how to use and create your own flashcards.

Why should I use online flashcards ?

  1. You can add easily different fonts or write in non-English fonts such as Japanese, Chinese, Russian etc.

3. They don’t tear or break.

4. You can easily add multimedia content such as images, sounds or even movies.

5. It is very easy duplicating the cards and change the copy.

6. The dog can’t eat them.

What problems did I find using online flashcards ?

2. I’m so easily distracted.

3. I forget to go back to the website to practice.

Most of the time I spend on my computer, and it’s so easy for me to distract myself surfing on the internet, and making the process of entering a website to be able to practice didn't help me, and So I thought:

I’m not going to him, why don't I bring him to me ?

I did a lot of research to help with this, but I couldn’t find it, and I didn't want to abandon this method, because as I said, it is an incredibly powerful learning tool, and then I’ve had the idea of fluany.

Did I stop using them ?

Fluany is a chrome extension to use flashcards while you’re surfing on the internet.

You don't need stop what you doing to practice.

The idea is basically putting a package to practice, which is a study list, set time interval, and continue surfing on the internet, and if you configured for 15 minutes, a card will appear for you, on the page that you are, and you will have to say the answer.

Otimize your time

Your time is precious and with fluany, you can study while you work, talk with your friends or even watching videos.
