I’ve been using the software program Anki for a few years now, and each semester I find that my peers are interested in learning more about it. So I’ve put together a video introduction to help folks decide if this is something they might be interested in using in their own language practice.
Anki is like other spaced repetition programs like Memrise and Quizlet, but it’s different in two key ways:
- It’s a desktop (or mobile) app rather than a website
- It’s 100% customizable: you decide how the cards look, what information the cards contain, how often you see cards, etc.
This video is a really brief rundown of Anki’s central feautres, but it would take hours to explain every detail of this powerfull tool!
