    For users that have an interest in learning a foreign language, then TinyClassroom is an Android flashcard app that can help you. The developers used their own language learning experience as a model, and brought it to the mobile app. It comes with operation instructions for using the app, and also you can download content from various locations. For instance, from the Web you can locate sites that have content already available, like flashcard exchange. You can also pull flashcards from another app as long as they are in CSV format. You can also create your own in txt format. Those two formats are the basic ones although, in some cases, an advanced format will allow users to create extra columns.

    In addition, the flash card system uses the Leitner method. This is a method for the effective use of flashcards. It uses the concept of spaced repetition, where the system reviews cards at increasing intervals.

    In this method, you organize the flashcards into study groups according to how well you remember each one in the learning box. It works like this. Recall the answer on a flashcard. If you succeed, the card goes to the next group. However, if you fail, the card goes back to the first group. Thereafter, it takes each succeeding group a longer time frame before you must revisit the cards.
