How Quizlet works

Welcome to Quizlet! Quizlet provides free study tools for students, teachers, and learners of all ages that can be used in and out of the classroom, on your own or with friends, and on the go with our iOS and Android apps. 

Getting started

Once you've signed up for an account, you can create your own study sets with the exact material you need to learn... 


...Or you can search for sets on your topic that have already been made by other students and teachers. To date, Quizlet users have created over 140 million sets covering everything from basic Spanish and AP US History, to cashier codes for a new job and materials to prep for the TOEFL. 

For teachers

Using Quizlet is an effective way to get your students further engaged in what they're learning both in the classroom and at home. Our site offers six different study modes that appeal to all types of learners, allowing students to use what works best for them and go at their own pace. As a teacher you can easily create Quizlet classes to share study material with your students quickly and track their progress. And with our team-based game, Quizlet Live, it's easy to get your whole class involved, learning the material and how to work together in the process.
