Changing the language of your keyboard


When studying another language on Quizlet, you may need to make some changes to your keyboard settings in order to answer written questions in some study modes.


When there are more than 48 special characters in a set, Quizlet doesn’t display special characters on the screen for you to choose from.

Once you’ve done this, you can answer questions by typing with your computer’s physical keyboard or selecting special characters from the on-screen keyboard.
