Este estudio pretende mejorar el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje de lenguas extranjeras a través de Quizlet, una herramienta digital muy popular para el aprendizaje de idiomas. En particular, se exploran los siguientes aspectos del uso de Quizlet entre estudiantes universitarios españoles que aprenden inglés: la efectividad de la retención de vocabulario, su impacto en la motivación de los estudiantes y en el aprendizaje autónomo. Los resultados y conclusiones obtenidos a través de un cuestionario con 30 participantes apuntan al éxito de Quizlet que ha contribuido de forma muy positiva al aprendizaje del vocabulario visto durante el curso, ha ayudado a que este sea más ameno, divertido y atractivo, mejorando así la motivación de los alumnos, y ha ayudado a los alumnos a tener un papel más activo y autónomo en su aprendizaje. Según la encuesta, el 90% de los participantes manifiestan su deseo de utilizar esta herramienta educativa en otras asignaturas de la carrera, y el 97% considera que el aprendizaje de idiomas potenciado por la tecnología es el rumbo que debe tomar la enseñanza.
