Portuguese Audio FlashCards is a foreign language vocabulary learning tool by Declan Software. The Portuguese version includes around 3100 words and phrases each with a native speaker audio recording. Words are organized into approximately 100 WordFiles with each WordFile containing up to 50 words.

The Learning List: The words are learned based on a Learning List. The Learning List contains a subset of all the words in the WordFile – 10 words by default (although this can be changed by users). The Learning List allows users to concentrate learning a small group of words at any one time. Once a word is learned (by reviewing the Learning List and completing the Exercises) it is removed from the Learning List and is replaced by another, as yet unlearned word from the WordFile. This continues until the whole WordFile is learned.

Exercises: Words in the learning list should first be Reviewed using the “Review Learning List” option. Then users can move to the Exercises which include the Meaning Exercise, the Word Exercise, the Spelling Exercise and the Listening Exercise. Once all the exercises have been correctly completed, the word is marked as complete, removed from the Learning List and replaced by a new word. However, if the user gets one answer wrong in any of the exercises, then all the exercises must be completed again for that one word. This ensures comprehensive learning and retention.

Managing the Learning List: After a new WordFile is loaded the Learning List size is automatically set to 10. The number of words in the Learning List can be set by adding or removing words to the Learning List in the “Review Words” feature. In the “Task” menu select “All Words in WordFile” and then return to the main page. The select “Review All WordFile Words”. As you progress through the words in the WordFile words can be added to and dropped from the Learning List using the “Add to Learning List” / “Drop from Learning List” button.

Loading new WordFiles: To switch to another wordfile simply press the “Load Another WordFile” button and then select the WordFile you desire from the “Load WordFile” table. The Audio FlashCards comes preloaded with 3 WordFiles – all other WordFiles are downloaded by the application as required using an (WiFi or 3G) internet connection. If a WordFile needs to be downloaded before it can be used it will have a grey icon next to it in the “Load WordFile” table. To start downloading the WordFile simply select that WordFile and then press the “Start Download” button.

Other language versions of Audio FlashCards includes on iTunes include: Arabic, Bahasa Indonesian, French, Chinese, Chinese (Traditional), Japanese, Korean, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Hebrew, Greek. FREE.

Ratings and Reviews

The best I've found


As an auditory learner, this app is the best I've found for learning European Portuguese vocabulary (and I appreciate that it's clearly separated from their Brazilian Portuguese app!). Besides learning words by category, Sticky lists for the words I have trouble with, and making my own lists within the app, they have word collections such as 1000 verbs, 1000 nouns, 440 adjectives and 200 common expressions -- all broken down into manageable learning groups of 10. Knowing 3000 words is knowing 80% of a language, its said (in common usage). For *learning*, this app is the way to go! To *review* vocabulary though, I use Flashcards Deluxe with lists that I've created myself on the computer and uploaded. The text-to-speech function of that app makes it great for listening on the go and reviewing Portuguese words that I learned with this interactive app - Declan Software's Audio FlashCards. (Yes, it's annoying that the iPad and iPhone apps aren't universal but I knew that before I purchased. Consequently, I bought the iPhone version and use it on the iPad also. Works great.) Thanks Declan Software!



Audio often does not match the word or does not work, but better than nothing.

Different iPhone and iPad versions!
