- Flashcards: You’ll be shown flashcards with text, audio, and a hidden translation. Test your memory by guessing the word, then select Show translation to check your answer.
- Writing: You’ll engage in writing exercises that ask you to type what you hear or translate the flashcards shown, testing your listening skills and memory.
Please note, Flashcards Vocabulary Reviews are exclusive to the iOS version of the Busuu app. Whenever flashcards aren’t available, Writing reviews are offered by default. Happy reviewing!
