The flashcards mode is a great way to introduce new content that is unfamiliar to the student. The default flashcard mode shows both the word and the picture.  

The record button in the flashcards game is just there for practice. It allows the user to try to say what they are hearing and then to listen to their own recording by pressing the play button. However, it does not actually save over the existing recording. That can only be done from the settings page.

Since there are many different ways of learning from using flashcards, we offer a variety of settings so that you can perfectly adapt the flashcards game to your students needs and preferences.

The settings options include

  • Record button: Turn the record button on or off depending on whether you want to let kids practice while viewing the flashcards. 
  • Play audio with new card: Turn setting on to always have the audio play the moment the card appears.
