Resources

In this episode, we talked about Quizlet as a vocabulary-learning app. Go to www.quizlet.com to create a free account.

You can create your own vocabulary lists – check out my YouTube videos (How to learn with Quizlet & How to create a new learning set from a Word or Excel list in Quizlet) – and search for topic areas in the top search bar.

When you find a learning set you like, simply click on the ‘copy icon’ 

Next 1. Make any changes to the list 
2. Change the title to your own, and 
3 click on the ‘Create’ button to add it to your account. 

 We also discuss a couple of hacks to help you better understand YouTube videos. 

 1.    Click on ‘CC‘ to see the subtitles.
2.    Click on the 3 dots to be able to see the transcript if one is available.
3.    Click on the settings cog, then ‘playback speed’ to slow the video down.

Hope these hacks help. 

Until the next time.
