How do Tinycards by Duolingo work?
To help you learn vocabulary, Tinycards shows you a bunch of flashcards first. The cards work similarly to how we use flashcards in person. On one side of the card, there is the word you’ll learn with an illustration. And on the other side is its translation.
Likewise, the cards include audio. Thus, you’ll have the word you’re learning pronounced by native Italians.
After viewing a few cards, it asks you to recall the information. It does it employing different approaches. It can give you multiple choices and test you to see if you click the right one. Also, it can tell you to type in the word. And in other cases, it gives you a translation in English.
Concerning languages, you can use flashcards created by Duolingo. Nevertheless, regarding other topics, you can use flashcards created by other users. You can even create flashcards yourself. Users can create flashcards on any topic.
