Index Cards: Vocabulary

Index cards are usually 3 inches by 5 inches (3x5) or 4 inches by 6 inches (4x6). They are made of paper that is heavier than notebook paper. This page describes how you can use them for learning vocabulary (and other things, too!).

Flash Cards

  • Write the English word on one side and the word in the language you are learning on the other.
  • This is very helpful in learning a foreign language.
  • Write a specific subject's vocabulary on one side and the definition on the other.
    • You might have a stack of biology vocabulary index cards and a separate stack of social studies vocabulary index cards.
  • Spend ten minutes every day (or longer) reviewing the words you need to learn.
  • Have someone quiz you often.
  • You can put aside (but do not throw out) the word and definitions that you have mastered.
  • You can also use them for: weekly spelling words, recipes, directions to a friend's house, algebraic equations, the name of a book you want to read, the laws of physics and many more things, too!
  • You can do something very similar to this on a computer by using a database program.
