IWTYAL 082: The Truth About Flashcards And Language Learning

In this episode I discuss the common criticism of flashcards as an “ineffective” study technique.

In this episode:

Three common criticisms of flashcards:

  1. Involves rote learning
  2. Vocabulary lacks context
  3. Doesn't work for many people

I address each of these criticisms and discuss why I think flashcard software is one of the most useful and relevant organisational and learning tools for learning foreign languages.
