How to create a flashcard?

1. Lookup any word:

Use English, Chinese, or Pinyin to look up words and their meanings from our extensive dictionary entries.

2. Understand the context

Discover each word in sentences to better understand how to use them.

3. Save to your collections

From dictionary entries, save any words with the example sentences of your choice to your own vocabulary lists.

4. Study with our custom algorithm

Our custom Spaced Repetition Algorithm re-teaches you words just as you start to forget.

Effective Flashcards

Spaced Repetition has been shown to affect the strength of memory and to produce long-term, durable results. Serica sets the scene to help you practice your learning and, in turn, helps you achieve your goals.

Understand words in context

Lookup Chinese words using English, Pinyin, or Chinese and discover key example sentences for more context. Context is key when learning new vocabulary and ways to express yourself in a foreign language.

Minimalist organization

Serica has been designed to minimize the effort of organizing, enabling users to better focus on expanding their understanding of the Chinese language and culture.

Useful phrases

The problem with vocabulary lists is that you never know which words to use with a particular word. This app teaches you short phrases that you can actually use in your day-to-day life.
