How Quizlet works

Quizlet is a free website providing learning tools for students, including flashcards, study and game modes. It was created by high school sophomore Andrew Sutherland in 2005 and now contains over 40 million study sets. All of the material is user-generated.


You start by creating your own study sets with terms and definitions.

Next, you can add images, copy and paste from another source, or use Quizlet's built-in auto-define feature to speed up the creating process.



Over 40 million user-generated flashcard sets (and counting)!

Chances are you'll find something to study.
