Learn something new every day.

It takes time, energy and motivation to study. And these three things rarely coincide together.

For example, children have a lot of time and energy but little motivation. Students have both motivation and energy, but little time. Adults can have much motivation but can often lack the energy and time.

That is why there are few teaching methods that are universal. Flash cards is one of them.

The secrets of efficiency

  • A flash card narrows the field of concentration down to a minimum: unfamiliar on one side and familiar on the other. Nothing superfluous! Thus, the establishment of connections in the brain occurs quickly, without any distractions.
  • Unlike book pages, flash cards can be sorted. And if you sort the cards into small groups, you will have enough energy for the whole session.
  • The best motivation is a vital necessity: child development, new friends, work, etc.
    But the flash cards also involve laziness and curiosity.
    ◦ The flipping* requires physical effort, albeit insignificant. And laziness subconsciously motivates you to remember what you need to remove the need to keep flipping over the flash card.
    ◦ And when you see on the back what you expected, the brain receives a small dose of dopamine.

Why do I need this?

If you need to remember any set of information, for example:

  • new words, foreign languages
  • terms, rules, instructions
  • symbols and their meanings
  • the order of the planets or other objects
  • passwords, addresses, names, dates
  • assortment of goods, stock numbers
  • and much more,

with flash cards you will remember it very quickly.

How? Simply create your own cards and flip through them every time you have a free 5–10 minutes.


Flash cards stimulate thinking, train memory and expand your vocabulary. These are long-known facts. But there is one problem: paper flash cards are not very convenient to use in the fast paced modern life.

You can not always buy ready-made paper flash cards for a desired topic. And it’s not as effective for learning as creating your own flash cards. As for creating flash cards you will need, at the very least, paper, scissors and a pencil, and then somewhere to store them. And they are not even interactive.

But there is one interesting solution… 🤓
