We just launched Speller, a new study mode where you type what you hear.
Speller works well for a number of studying needs:
- Foreign language vocabulary and pronunciation.
- Learn how to spell difficult words.
- Familiarize yourself with a list of terms you don't know very well.
Listen to a term or definition and type in the correct response. If you make a mistake, Quizlet will show you which letters you missed so you can try again. With audio now in 18 languages Speller works automatically with almost any flashcard set.
Let's use a French Food vocabulary set as an example.
Speller shows you the definition and says the correct term. In this case the answer is "lait." If you type it in correctly you move on to the next question. If you make a mistake, Speller shows you which letters you missed.
In this example, the term was not spelled correctly. "Laee" was entered rather than "lait." Speller shows that the the first part of the word "la" was spelled correctly and then highlights in green the proper letters to spell out the rest of the word. Speller then speaks the term again, "lait," and spells out the correct spelling word letter by letter: "l", "a", "i", "t".
You must spell the word correctly to move on to the next term.
Speller asks 7 terms per round. In between rounds you receive a Progress Checkpoint to see how you're doing. You must answer each term correctly twice in a row for it to count as Fully Learned.
Speller is complete once you've Fully Learned each term. On the results page you can see the percentage of answers correct and which words you missed. You can repeat Speller again or move onto other Quizlet study modes like Learn, Test, Scatter, or Space Race.
