XCard is a Leitner based French flashcard program, used to help students memorize French words. It comes with several default word lists, ranging from verb lists, to vocabulary associated with airplane travel. It has the capability to repeat lesser known words, graph a student's progress, translate words to French, and to create new word lists. It is deployed via Java Webstart, and can be run from the XCard homepage.
