"The more cards you make for a single topic, the easier and better you’ll memorize it. Your job is to think about what the word means. These cards make the words easier to recall when you want to use them in speaking or writing..."
Quote: "Flashcards are a timeless way to absorb information, regardless of the subject. You’ve probably used them in formal schooling for remembering formulas or for names of parts of the body in biology. In language learning, using flashcards OFLAMERON is probably the best way to pick up new vocabulary, along with reading, of course."

"You can take paper flashcards anywhere. For paper cards, all you need is a small box, and you’re ready to go. You don’t need any special programs or apps to use them. As long as you bring them along with you, you can totally rely upon them."
Quote: "Lots of people like to share their flash card decks, and there are also plenty of flash card apps and programs out there that will let you download pre-made decks and start studying instantly. I think using pre-made cards (as PDF or DOC images for print) can sometimes be useful – such as a case where you have an unreasonably high number of facts to learn and you’re in a time crunch – but in most cases, you’ll serve your brain better by making your own flash cards."
Quote: "When we think about it from an evolutionary perspective, this makes complete sense; written language has only been around for about 5,000 years (and Homo Sapiens have been trotting the globe for over 200,000), and our brains have evolved to be very sensitive to imagery. The locations of food, the animals that want to eat us or stomp us into the ground – these things are far more important to our brains than abstract squiggles on a page."
Quote: "... Many people still draw pictures on their flashcards or right " neatly" on them or even cut out text from a printed sheet of paper, but none of those look presentable. Open up Microsoft Word ( or pages for you Mac users), and open up page set up ( through the File menu) then click on paper size. Change the page orientation to landscape. Make A textbox that is a little bigger than 3x5 ( or the size of Index or Card stock you're using)..."
Quote: "... The weirder and wackier your associations are, the more easily you’ll remember them. That’s because your brain is adapted to remember things that are out of the ordinary. It readily deletes mundane things like the chit-chat you had buying your morning coffee, or which Ninja Turtle was on the underwear you put on this morning.
So feel free to make your pictures crazy. Also, remember that you’re making these cards for you; it doesn’t matter if the associations make sense to other people. They should be making their own cards...."
Ok, if there are no new ideas. May be - download PDF and print?
