Every TOEFL test taker has to prepare vocabulary before test day. Study and review English words take much time for EFL (English as a Foreign Language) people. Some people used to study English words by flashcards since their first English class in elementary school. A familiar tool, flashcards, may make things easier for them to improve productivity in building TOEFL vocabulary.
If you plan to use flashcards to prepare TOEFL words, the first step is to look for a set of flashcards that matches your current vocabulary level and test goal. It seems simple, but actually, it is not easy. At either Internet or book stores, you may get some flashcard sets; however, you can hardly have one to meet with your circumstance exactly. As a matter of fact, only a few lucky people can find out a flashcard set that is with 70 percent words useful.
Prepare TOEFL vocabulary is a personalized job. An existing flashcard set hardly reflects your requirement. Too easy flashcards will waste your time because of lots of known words. On the other hand, too hard flashcards will drop your efficiency because you possibly miss some higher frequency words. So we recommend you create your flashcards to prepare TOEFL test.
We implement two types of flashcard for all TOEFL vocabularies in this web site: one-sided and double-sided.
On every group's word-list page, you can see two buttons: Card and Flashcard. They respectively launch a one-sided card sheet and double-sided flashcard sheet.
