Hacknight: Better Mandarin Support in Quizlet

News & Quizlet HQ ·

There’s no way around it - Chinese Mandarin is hard to study on Quizlet. Mandarin doesn’t fit into the normal “Term” - “Definition” model that Quizlet's six study modes are based on. This is because learning a word in Mandarin requires learning the character (Hanzi), the pronunciation (through a romanization system called pinyin), as well as the corresponding English word. As a result, students of Mandarin are forced to either cram the English and the pinyin together into the definition column of a Quizlet set, or leave the pinyin off completely. Neither option is ideal.

Enter Hack Night. Once a month at Quizlet we do a “Hack Night.” Hack Night is a time when everyone on the team drops the normal projects they’re working on, and instead takes a deep dive on any topic of interest. A Hack Night project can be anything from refactoring old code, to making a movie, to exploring radical new study modes for our users. Several members of the Quizlet team are active Mandarin learners, so not being able to use Quizlet to study has been a gripe we’ve had for a long time. For this Hack Night, a few of us struck out to improve the experience for Chinese language learners on Quizlet.

The Challenge

As we described above, Quizlet’s current term-definition model poses a challenge for Mandarin vocab students. Formatting is also an issue. In the example above, you could study a Quizlet set in Learn Mode by prompting with the Chinese hanzi and typing the English only. Want to try typing in pinyin too? Sorry, but you’re out of luck. You could prompt with the English and pinyin together, but that gives too strong a hint as to what the hanzi is, inhibiting a productive learning experience.

Why Not Three-sided Cards?

Ask 100 Mandarin learners on Quizlet what feature that would like to see on Quizlet, and at least 99 responses will be “three-sided cards.” If we had a third field besides just “Term” and “Definition” for users when they create a Quizlet set, then we would be able separate out the hanzi, pinyin, and English easily. You could then test yourself across Quizlet modes in with any prompt and response combo you like. Want to see pinyin and type the hanzi? Great. Want to see the English and type the pinyin? No Problem.

We are obsessed with user experience at Quizlet, and we know that one of Quizlet’s greatest strengths is that it’s so intuitive and easy to understand. The reason we’ve avoided adding a third column for so long is that doing so would complicate the simple design of the site. That hurdle doesn’t mean we won’t ever add true three-sided support, but it will be a serious task to make sure that, in doing so, we don’t compromise the experience for users who only need 2-sided support.

Simulated Three-sided Cards for Mandarin

Our goal for Hack Night was simple. Instead of changing the data model completely for our Mandarin learners, what if we could intelligently guess that a set on Quizlet has Chinese, pinyin, and English terms all crammed together, and make the study modes function as if there were a three-sided data model? We decided to start with our most effective study mode: Learn Mode. We targeted sets formatted like this (with Chinese on the left and English on the right with Pinyin in parenthesis):

Success! Three-sided Learn Mode

By 2am or so, we had a three-sided version of learn mode, where you choose the prompt (Pinyin, English or Hanzi) and how you want to answer.

Screen Shot 2013-07-22 at 6.41.27 PM

Bonus: Open Source Software for Easier Pinyin Input

As we were building this new mode, it became painfully obvious that we needed a better way to type pinyin. It’s annoying to have to click on the accented vowels every time you want to enter pinyin or try to remember the correct key combo for each accent vowel on the keyboard. So, as an added bonus, we changed our pinyin grading to accept pinyin entered using numbers for the tone. For example, if you need to type “lǎoshī” as an answer, you can now just type “lao3shi1” and we’ll automatically convert to the correct accented pinyin and mark it correct. For any aspiring developers out there building better educational tools for Mandarin learners, we decided to open-source our javascript code pinyin tone numbers to accented tones. You can find that code at It’s a simple and fast way of inputting pinyin.

Try it Out!

See it in action here: This new three-sided learn mode will only be enabled if the following requirements are met:

  1. The term column language is Chinese (Simplified) or Chinese (Traditional)
  2. The Definition Column language is Not Pinyin (typically English)
  3. The Definition contains pinyin in parentheses

Update, June 2018: When we built this at one of Quizlet's earliest Hack Nights it was available in Learn mode on the Quizlet website. Since then, we've made substantive changes to our study modes. Now, this works in Write mode (formerly known as Learn) on the website when you're studying Chinese sets.

  9. artygirl

    I don't do Chinese, but that sounds really cool!! That could probably be used in different languages as well, for instance, if you had Latin nouns, you could have Latin, English, and then the gender or declension or the genitive form. Something similar would also apply to verbs, prepositions, etc., in many different languages.

  10. Celeste_Everwhite

    We could really use that feature in Latin too..........

  11. brownlee-sensei TEACHER

    We need this feature for Japanese for exactly the same reasons as Chinese - kanji/hiragana/English. Please enable it for Japanese as well

    13th comment too! Sephiroth is so awesome!

  14. childofforest


  15. bulerias12

    This would be super handy for Latin. I've been using a Hawaiian language keyboard layout for the long vowel marks up til now, but having that number-input system would be even simpler.

  16. seika27

    i like it

  17. seika27

    its useful thats all i need

  19. stellaliu TEACHER

    Thank you for all your efforts and we look forward to seeing the breakthough on the three-sided cards. That would be very useful and awesome.

  20. wealthychef

    I tried the link you provide and it does not provide a 3-sided mode. Is it broken with Safari?

  21. xuezhongwen3

    Nice! Keep going.

  22. chanind

    @wealthychef it's normal learn mode, but it lets you choose any combination of pinyin, characters, and English to prompt and answer with

  23. Elijah_Barker

    Let's say I want to have a set (or rather a table) information like this: Then it would be helpful not only to have two or three columns, but as many as one wants. There could be the option to make a multi-column table when creating the set. These would be most helpful with a custom name for each column. The set creator could then select the default term/definition columns. Etc, etc.

  24. FionaClements PLUS

    I've defined a set that I think meets the three criteria you give above, and I'm not seeing the new options in Learn mode. I am seeing them with your Basic Chinese Words set, but not with this one:

    What crucial step have I missed?

  25. comptonhegy

    I cant wait to use this feature. As I am a student of TCM, I have to take two very intensive courses in medical chinese (mandarin). Thank you so much for thinking of this!

  26. na85

    As a passionate educator of Mandarin Chinese, it's so exciting to feel the energy you guys have towards developing a better app for both teachers and students of this amazing language!

  27. chriskao

    That's great idea. keep studying the Chinese language better and better. :)

  28. chriskao

    That's great idea. keep studying the Chinese language better and better. :)

  29. anna_kremlackova

    Three-sided card are such a good idea ---> for learning japanese kanji too, because you need too study pronounciation (mostly written in hiragana) and meaning in your own language. (like this: 意味-いみ-meaning) and tree-sided card would help :)

  31. juhstin_khim

    Why is it that Quizlet will no longer define any Chinese words?

  32. pgorb1972


  33. Stiffy

    Oh man we need this for Japanese too! Perhaps if there was a button to toggle 2 sided/three sided? I don't think that would sully the sweet simplistic design of Quizlet and there would be a fair few grateful users. From the comments it seems there are at least three languages that would benefit from this format, and I know I could have really used this when I was studying art history!

  34. Stiffy

    As it is, I'll make the flashcards with the kanji in one column and the character reading + meaning in another, with the meaning in parentheses. Then, when I play space race, I check the box to ignore whatever is in the parentheses. When I want to study the meaning rather than the reading, I have to edit the set and put parentheses around the reading instead. It's a pain in the neck, especially since I have to switch it back and forth at least twice for each time I study the set. The three sided cards would reeeeally help, you should absolutely make this a standard feature, or at the very least a Quizlet Plus feature.

  35. juareza1

    I was one of the many who suggested the "the 3 sides card"!! Thank you for attending our idea.
    The point is I write HanZi and (Pinyin) on one side, and my own language (Spanish) on the other side. That makes things harder for studding, but more successful on my opinion.

    Any way... I thing the best best way is having a "real 3D cards" is to implement a real 3 fields data base.

    THANK YOU!!!

  36. Starrwoman

    Thank you! This is a really wonderful solution!

  37. MrsLsFifthGrade

    Omg! I have been using LiveMocha to study Mandarin and happy to find it available in the new version on quizlet! Thank you for your work on this improvement. Now maybe some of my students will join me in learning Mandarin.

  38. MpRandolph

    Three sided cards sound great! When can we expect it available on the iPhone App? There are two applications, besides Mandarin (I am excited about Mandarin).

    1. Chemistry Chemical Formulas and Equations
    (formula, word, and then a description.
    2. Vocabulary words (In one language). Most teachers require the sentence, and if well crafted, it really does aid the student in learning the word definition.
    (word, definition, the sentence).

    I'm a parent of students in Mandarin, Science, and Chemistry student, and of course, my boys also make Quizlet sets for English, History too. (It was great for Spanish too!)

  39. chianglaoshi TEACHER

    I used to make 3 sets of flashcards on Quizlet for each lesson: PinYin + character, character + definition, character + PY+Definition. This certainly helps. However, I also want my students to print out the cards so we can use in the classroom, and I see the printing is still for 2-sides. Any suggestions?

  40. M_arokkaanse

    As other users have already pointed out, this could be useful for other languages too. Not just a few other languages, but for everything that comes with 3 columns, it doesn't matter in which language. But either way, it's great that you're always trying to improve quizlet.

  41. mafon13

    Good idea!! I can't wait for the Japanese support to come out.

  42. emfer19

    this is awesome!!!!!!!!! totally what i've been looking for

  43. jiang_lun_qing

    stop making excuses and develop three sided cards.........

  44. msshawyu


  45. chlaoshi TEACHER

    How to add pinyin_converter plugin? Can step by step instruction be provided? Thank you.

  46. isata88

    This three sided option will work well for adding clues as the flash card middle man to bridge the uncertainty gap.

  47. bgontowski

    I agree with others that the three sided option would work well with other languages.

    For example, in Japanese, "san" means both "3" and "Mr./Mrs."

    Japanese uses a combination of Kanji and context to distinguish a word. For example, 3 would be 三 and さん would follow someone's name.

    Actually, I've often wanted much more information included when studying.

    For example, I want to know if a term is a "u" or "ru" verb, so I can practice conjugation. I have had to do weird things like enter a verb as いくーう (iku-u) to show the verb type. This messes up the vocal pronunciation though, since it reads the trailing -u. I've done the same thing when studying conjugation... いくーいきますーいって for the masu and te forms. The voice is pretty much useless in that case.

    I also would like both the Hiragana form (so I know how to pronounce) and the Kanji form (so I know how to read/write).

    Although, I should mention that I always use the learn/scatter modes rather than the flash cards.

  48. kkkelsey

    cool, but I'm learning Spanish.

  49. MsYin TEACHER

    Congras to Quizlet Team ! A big Thank You from a Chinese teacher. This story will be among the first things we will be talking about in class when school starts in September. Keep up good work!

  50. Youfoooooooool

    That's awesome!

  51. chicagoshin TEACHER

    Love it! Thanks!!

  52. xiongyu1988


  53. leashy312

    This is great! Can you implement this for Hebrew as well?

  54. easy321 TEACHER

    Great job done. How about the handful of traditional Chinese characters that get mispronounced by simplified Chinese? i.e. traditional wording of 乾淨 (clean/gan1 jing4) mispronounced as simplified wording of 「乾」(坤) qian2 instead of 干gan1?This would likely be an issue to be fixed on the end of your text-to-speech provider.
    Looking forward to your next favorite solution. Thanks.

  55. katerussell2


  56. Decoy2711

    Ok, firstly, I want to say that this is a great idea.. But I still think that the old method had merit. I liked to do the learn mode by looking at the characters and then trying to figure out the pinyin in my head and the meaning as well, then typing in the english. I would be marked correct or not on the english and I would also see whether I was wrong on my pinyin.

    I'm oviously focusing mostly on my written Chinese.

    Please re-add the old method as a third drop down option on the menu so that those who are interested can easily revert to the old way of doing things should they feel the need.

    Thanks for all the hard work :D

  57. quizmadmoo GO

    This would be helpful for Latin too.

  58. Decoy2711

    The lack of backwards compatibility is annoying. should be so simple to add the option in the drop down 'answer with' box to have both pinyin and english. Basically, the old method. The new system has its merits, sure, but so does the old one. Now my sets take double the time to learn because I must learn character to pinyin, then afterwards to english. With the old method the brackets were good because the meant I didn't have to type the pinyin, only the english. But the pinyin still showed up when i had input a word, allowing me to check both my english and pinyin for a character at a glance.

  59. mariamrox4eva

    i wish it was for other languages arabic, or russian, or latin.

  60. max_james_moore

    This is great! One thing though... I put the pinyin in parentheses in the term column next to the relevant characters. Hours of formatting here I come... (It'll be worth it in the end though)

  61. Sykora

    The way I'd like to learn Chinese is by presenting the english, then the answer would be the Kanji & the Pinyin. Learning the Kanji is a lesser concern for me, but I'd still like it to be there, But I *don't* want to see the Pinyin always with the english in the raw flash cards, that basically gives me the answer =(

    I was thinking about making flash cards in the new "approved" format, but they wouldn't be useful for me in ANY format except the quizlet "learn" format, which I don't use. =/

  62. erich1

    Very interesting approach to solving this problem. Could there eventually be a global solution to comments in parenthesis? I'm thinking of homophones in some languages. Say you are learning French and are learning by listening the french term and type what it means in English. If you have "la mère (maman)" and "la mer (maritime)" for instance, hearing both terms will help you find the correct word in English (mom, sea). If you are quizzing yourself the other way round however, you only want to type "la mère" when you hear "mom" and not add the stuff in parentheses in order to get it right.

  63. benjamin01px2018

    It's an awesome addition to an already very useful website. However, I would like to point out that sometimes, the pinyin doesn't show up in Learn mode when selected.

  64. chouhouzi

    我感谢你! Keep charging. I have a few sets of English/Pinyin/汉字 spreadsheets to put on my iPhone.

  65. nate2727

  66. gsembeninitato

    YYEEEAAAAAHHHH!!!! Finally !

  67. Kaleigh-Lin

    You should also add Traditional Chinese because some people like me, learn from traditional.

  68. andrewli321

    73rd comment!

    Cool addition!

  69. LucyLuck

    yay!! also if some people don't want the complicated three column, they can just not add the third column, kinda like not adding a sixth row.

  70. DeathRiderX

    Could you please have scatter on Chinese "Triangular" flash cards have to option to switch definitions? like "Hello (nǐ hǎo)" Should be separated. The pinyin being there makes it hard to match English words because it gives away how many characters there are. Thanks!

  71. Kimitsu

    Pretty cool but I want to use it for Japanese since it is what I am studying now.

  72. pikachu168

    I AM LIKE SO CONFUSED right now....
    I don't understand :/
    That means should I make separate sets of Chinese?
    1. Chinese character - English
    2. Chinese character - Chinese pinyin?

    awesome idea, because i will be studying chinese next year =D
    thank you!

  79. ron_campbell

    I want to echo a couple of other posts. This functionality is necessary for Japanese for EXACTLY the same reasons!

    Japanese uses Chinese characters! This is a double hurdle for learners; learn the word, learn the kanji.

    Why do you not make this available for all users??? Three-sided cards are baked into Anki and a number of other systems. I'm sure other language learners would make use of it too. (e.g. word-definition-example sentence)

    I got a subscription to Quizlet primarily for my English classrooms. But I want to use it myself to study Japanese. This is a major consideration for long-term use!

  80. casto1

    I don't get it

  81. gmoulding TEACHER

    I used the format to create 6 Chinese sets. Only one set worked, the other 5 did not work at all. Could you give me some suggestions about what happened? Thank you so much!

  82. SSLegend99

    This is great! Although there is much room for improvement. :)

  83. ChonchoChampion


  84. Mai_Yenish

    Three sided card would assist with higher level Japanese. One side English, another side kanji, and the other side furigana / hirigana to ensure the reading of the kanji is correct.

  85. Coolwhipcat

    Folders! I love this new feature BUT the options are not there when I want to "learn" multiple sets (folders) at once. Are you adding the feature to folder studying too? That would be really appreciated so I can got through mulitple lessons at once! Also it would be great if for tests/space racing/flashcard/scatter it would also ask "prompt with pinyin, character or english?" instead of just term/definition. Thanks!!!

  86. liting22

    Wow! This is awesome!

    The only thing I might be a little annoyed is that it doesn't have Chinese Traditional.
    Some people are familiar with the simplified version, but others like me, are not.

    Just a suggestion, it should have both Simplified and Traditional for Chinese.
    The difference is that simplified Chinese has less strokes, and traditional Chinese has more strokes.
    People in China usually write Chinese simplified, and people in Taiwan usually write Chinese traditionally.

  87. MochaDoodle

    Anyone really got Chinese 3 sided card function really work? Or it is just a 2 sided card with Pinyin cramped with English definition? If that is the case, that is not exactly a 3 sided card. The programer seems just modified the script to ignore the Pinyin word in the parentheses so that Quizlet will only read the English portion.

    What if I want to show just the Pinyin and ask student to give me the Chinese character or English? I suppose this can't be done. Hope someone can proof me wrong and tell me it is just a user error.

  88. emfer19

    i figured out that in order for the pinyin to be recognized you have to type the pinyin with the letter followed by the tone number. i retyped all the toned letters in my definitions using that method (so like if i already had ă i deleted it and retyped it like a3) now it works. try that for your sets. retype each toned letter using this method and it should work. hope this helps! i think this is like the only way to get it to work. idk. Good luck.

  89. hjeong

    Is there a way to disable this function? When using learn mode, I like to prompt with Chinese characters but see the definition AND pinyin as the answer when I get something wrong (so that I can remember how to pronounce it too). Please let me know if you know how to disable it!

  90. Ganeshrg

    95th comment, I think. If anyone can help, please do!

  92. macgiobuin PLUS

    As others noted, this only works some of the time. Four of my sets meet the criteria above, but the three-choice prompt only appears for one of them in learn mode. Any insight or solutions?

  93. macgiobuin PLUS

    Figured out the reason some of mine weren't working. You can't have nested parentheses or other special characters within the pinyin or anything else that doesn't register as pinyin, for example X or Y as people placeholders. Also, a single apostrophe in (nǚ'ér) prevented one of my sets from working. Dashes seem to be fine though.

    To the commenter directly above me, I would try making sure there is a space between the English definition and the parenthetical pinyin.

  94. Eliza_Sandell

    Really needed this! Thank you.




    nice bro

  97. RyanKrage77

    I think an option to add more sides to cards would be hugely beneficial to numerous subjects, not just languages. I need to learn the prefixes, symbols AND multipliers for S.I units, so an option to add another side would be very helpful.

  98. Herrickjunior

    Yeah. It would be better to add Pinyin Services. I'm looking forward to it! Horray for Quizlet!

  99. Jenny_Maria

    Hi, this is great, I was just looking for 3-sided flash cards. But what I'm looking for is to be able to chose for the flashcards : show me the character, then pinyin, then English or other way around. Because now, using the brackets aystem, I just see the pinyin and English at the same time, which doesn't help my learning... Or is there a way to do this already?

  100. david_xia

    Yes! Thank you!

  101. weiweizang

    Yeah I tried with this format, some sets worked, but some sets didn't.
    It's very frustrating because you don't know exactly why it can't work, probably some tiny things the system has trouble recognizing.
    Strongly recommend Quizlet to develop the 3-sided function!
    Not just Chinese but many Asian languages have the similar need.
    Whichever study tool figures that out first will be the pioneer in the field of language learning!

    Doesn't work...

    Please re-enable this feature

  108. ppalermo2019 PLUS

    Please re enable this it was good while it worked and I’m sad that it no longer works
    Now I have to write three different quizlet sets per section, one for pinyin to english, one for hanzi to English, and one for hanzi to pinyin. Please re enable this, it makes making the sets less long, especially since sometimes the making of notecards is sometimes more time consuming than the actual study time.

  109. yunu_song

    Why did they stop this service? It seems that it was working only until a while ago. I really hope it returns.

  110. chicageek

    Why is this not working anymore? 3-sided cards are BASIC to any DECENT flashcards app. I've started using Quizlet only recently and like it so far, but I do really miss that feature from my previous flashcard...

  111. misterxman

    I spent 2 hours making a set in the very specific guidelines you set out. Then I find out it doesn't work anymore? Please re-enable this feature!

  112. Jingyu_Huo

    Yes, please bring it back. My students really need this feature.

    Hi I'm so glad I got to read this page "by googling a three-sided Quizlet"... But I tried changing everything hoping this would work, but it does not work for the sets that I created...Please advise, Quizlet...

    I'm studying Spanish, and am trying to study 2 different topics on the Spanish speaking countries. This would be useful for a variety of languages, not just Mandarin Chinese.

    Where did this go? I'm not getting the option anymore.

    Just let us have three sides card all together, please. Why must we be constrained and only one language be given priority?

    I would like to be able to study
    L1 word
    L2 word
    L2 sentence with word

    If this were possible I could shuffle my decks and have it auto play but instead I have to rig it with series of cards, in order only no shuffling...

    There are many many other possibilities with three sides cards. Let us have at it! ^ - ^

    spent a few hours trying to adapt my largest set (400 characters) to work with this... learnt that you can't have capital letters, must have (pinyin) in every definition, no apostrophe's within the parenthesis. be careful with formatting if you want to use this feature! its very fickle

    Would you be able to make this work with hanja sets? (Hanja is the Chinese writing system in the context of Korean)
    I need the Chinese letter, Korean pronunciation (written in Hangeul), and English meaning.
    I'm beginning to think it would be better if you just added a possible third side to your flashcards instead of having to fiddle around with brackets - then it could be available to everyone.

    The system no longer works
