Learning is a process that never stops. Whether we like it or not, we’re going to learn for as long as we live. As learning is a continual process that rarely gets to an end result, a lot of study methods have been invented. One popular method of studying involves using flashcards. Anki is a quite famous, highly-praised and widely-used program that efficiently combines the study using flashcards with the spaced repetition learning technique.
Anki is not exactly very easy-to-use, but everyone can eventually get the hang of it without much effort. Its interface is neither a plus, nor a disadvantage. In my opinion, Anki’s strength comes from its efficiency, its versatility and from the plenitude of features that it provides, such as the synchronization feature that lets you transfer and store flashcards and related data on multiple computers and devices, the intelligent scheduler or the unique data storage system, to name only a few.
The best thing about Anki is that it is truly oriented towards efficiency. No matter if you need to learn a language, study for an exam, memorize a text or even practice guitar chords, using Anki will ensure that this process will take less time and yet will lead to much better results. This combination of versatility and efficiency leaves me no other choice but to recommend this program to anyone in need of such a tool.
