You might al­ready know about Duolingo: it‘s a lan­guage-learn­ing plat­form. It has an app for learn­ing lan­guages that is pop­u­lar with young peo­ple and adults. Tiny­cards is Duolingo’s new app, which can be used for all kinds of learn­ing.

It’s an app equiv­a­lent of the pa­per flash cards that are some­times used to learn vo­cab­u­lary. These dig­i­tal flash cards are sorted into decks – more than 10,000 of them – for top­ics in­clud­ing ge­og­ra­phy, his­tory, lan­guages and sci­ence. The decks in­clude the coun­tries and cap­i­tals of Europe, im­por­tant women in his­tory, the pe­ri­odic ta­ble and mus­cles of the body. You can work your way through each deck, an­swer­ing ques­tions to test how well you’re do­ing, be­fore tak­ing a quiz at the end.

If you cre­ate a pro­file, you can make your own decks to share with the world – al­though check with an adult be­fore you do this.
