    Fill in the appropriate information. There are two sides to every flash card.
    • If you are making foreign language notecards, make sure to choose the correct language for each side of the notecard. This helpful because accents that correspond to the language will appear on the side of your screen to be used if needed.

    • If you are making flashcards of terms and their definitions you can use the "auto-define" option. When you begin typing a word into the box for the first side of the notecard, an "auto-define" button pops up directly under where you are typing. If you decide to use this feature, it provides definitions for your word from an online dictionary or other users sets. If you like one of the definitions, select it.

    • If you want to add an image to one side of your flashcards it is very easy to do. Once you click the "add image" button you can either upload an image you already found or search for an image on Flickr through Quizlet. Only problem is if you want to upload your own image you have to be a member of Quizlet Plus and pay $15 a year. But don't fret, using Flickr images is free!
