Build your own French vocabulary course with Custom Decks

If you have interests that are not covered by any of our specialized decks, you can always use Custom Decks. It’s super easy, and it is available on iOS, Android, and web.

To use it, you first enter either keywords around the topic you would like to learn, or – if you don’t have a specific list of keywords you’d like to learn – you can copy and paste some text on your desired topic in either French or English, and you are all set!

You will then see a preview of the French vocabulary Lingvist has created, along with the French phrases that will be used to help you learn these words. You can delete words you don’t want to study or already know, and you can also change the example sentence, if there is one that fits your topic a bit better.

After you have tailored things in the preview, it takes a few seconds for Lingvist to start pairing the French spoken audio to the French phrases in your course. Once that’s done, it’s time to start learning.

Have a friend you are studying with? Or perhaps you are a French teacher? Or maybe you are just super friendly and outgoing and want to share your course with the world? Whatever the case, you can now easily share your customized decks too!
