The Best of Quizlet

Nia Lambert

In the winter of 2007, Andrew Sutherland released what is known as one of the most popular studying apps, Quizlet. Quizlet is a study site that allows users to study various topics using games and different study techniques. 

I have used Quizlet since the 3rd grade, and it has been my favorite educational website ever since. On Quizlet, users can create study sets about any topic they choose. You can make you’re set public or private. If you decide to make your set general, other people can see the set you make. You then can find any topic you can think of, from Math to AP Spanish. “It helped me a lot with AP Psych, it’s a good way to memorize vocabulary words,” confidently said Bianca Munoz ‘21.

Quizlet has five study techniques you can use along with two different games. To study, you can choose flashcards, learn, write, spell, or test.

My favorite of these five when it comes to studying is “Learn.” During Learn, you have to recall information which is the best form of studying. I prefer to match out of the two games because it is more interactive; you match the term’s definition while counting down. At the end of the game, you are put on a leaderboard to compare your time with others, a little friendly competition.  “I love Quizlet it’s literally the best thing ever. The spell section lets me learn it on another level, happily said Jordan Williams ‘23.

Along with it being an independent study tool, your teacher can also use it in class. Quizlet Live

is a trivia game where you and your classmates make teams review the Quizlet set material. I enjoy Quizlet Live because it helps me remember what I might need to study more on my own time. “Best platform ever. I don’t know where I would be without it, thankfully said Nyla Williams ‘23. I have used Quizlet Live in nearly all my classes at Whitney Young, and it has always been a blast.

Overall, Quizlet is an excellent tool for online learning, and I will continue to use it in the future as I enter college in six months.
