Episode 25: How to use Quizlet to learn foreign language vocabulary with Suzette Laporte-Ayo

Quizlet is a free online resource and app that has quizzes and games for many different subjects. In this podcast, Suzette Laporte-Ayo, Spanish teacher at FundaFunda Academy, explains her unique way of using Quizlet for Spanish vocabulary study. Her method will work for most foreign languages.

There are many lists of vocabulary words on Quizlet. Choose one and spend 2 weeks working on it as follows:

First week of learning new vocabulary

1. Go to the “Flashcards” tab and listen to the words being pronounced and repeat them aloud.

2. Go to the “Match” game and try to get the fastest time you can.

3. Go to the “Spell” game and try to get a 90% or better.

Second week of learning new vocabulary


1. Go through the Flashcards again and say the word in Spanish BEFORE you flip the card then listen to the correct word.

2. Go to the “Write” tab and type the word for the picture that appears. If your child is not old enough to type, a parent can type it for them. After typing the word in Spanish, check to see if you got it right then say it out loud and then click on the speaker to listen to the word again.

3. Go to the “Test” tab. Again, if a child isn’t writing yet, a parent can type it for them. You can go to the left-hand side and find the “options” tab. Click it to choose to answer in Spanish, prompted in English, and the max amount of questions possible. Try to get 90% or more.

4. For 2nd grade and up, go to the “Gravity” tab. This game might be a little difficult. You need to type the word in Spanish before the asteroid disappears. Start out on the easy level. If you get good at it you can increase your difficulty level.
