What language(s) are you using?

When you start typing your terms and definitions Quizlet will auto-detect the languages you're using and prompt you to confirm our guess.

If accents or special characters are available for the language you selected, they'll pop up underneath the term row you're typing in.

Other information about creating a study set

2,000 term limit

Each study set has a limit of 2,000 term/definition pairs. Older study sets may contain more terms than that, but to ensure that Quizlet is performant, we now limit each set to 2,000 terms.
