Many of us have experience with using flash cards in educational settings both as a study aid and as an ‘in class’ resource. Why is this? Because they work! Flash cards, frankly, “keep it simple”. When you’re learning a new language a lot of the initial education is going to be establishing a base of vocabulary words that will become a foundation for your continued language acquisition. With Lingo Jingo we have vocabulary lessons of many languages that are within a particular context, as our philosophy is that to quickly acquire language skills it’s best to learn a language within the context of the situation that you’ll be in while traveling to a different country, for example. You’ll either go to restaurants, go to the beach, get money from a bank, order a drink in a bar, and on and on – you’ll be in countless situations where context is key. But I digress, flash cards are an incredibly easy, efficient and effective method to use to help reinforce what you’re learning in your Lingo Jingo lessons. We offer a way of creating your own in the app and that is by using your Lingo Jingo Phrasebook! You can access your Phrasebook upon login at the following link: http://lingo-jingo.com/Phrasebook
Once you’re there you’ll find all of the courses that exist in Lingo Jingo.
Our filters allow you to zero in on only those courses that exist in the language you are learning, so for example you want to see courses in Spanish simply set your filter to your language and dialect preference:
You’ll see all of our Spanish courses, lessons and will be able to view all of the vocabulary words and terms that are within these lessons – each with an option to “Download Words”:
Click the “Download Words” link at any point in a course, lesson or in the word list themselves and Lingo Jingo will create a document that you can use as a flash card tool which gives you the vocabulary word in the language of origin, phonetic spelling and english translation:
And presto! An automated way inside of Lingo Jingo to create effective and easy study tools for your goal of learning a new language. Create your flash cards through this process and you’ll find your scores in our lessons improve and, more importantly, your ability to retain what you’re learning to improve as well. Give it a go and please feel free to provide any and all feedback that you might have.
Gracias y adios!
