       anki - flashcard program for language learning


       Anki  is  a  program  designed  to help you remember facts (such as words and phrases in a
       foreign language) as easily, quickly and efficiently as possible.  To do this,  it  tracks
       how  well  you  remember each fact, and uses that information to optimally schedule review
       times. With a minimal amount of effort, you can greatly increase the  amount  of  material
       you remember, making study more productive, and more fun.

       Anki  is  based  on a theory called spaced repetition. In simple terms, it means that each
       time you review some material, you should wait longer than last time before  reviewing  it
       again.  This  maximizes  the time spent studying difficult material and minimizes the time
       spent reviewing things you already know. The concept is simple, but the vast  majority  of
       memory trainers and flashcard programs out there either avoid the concept all together, or
       implement inflexible and suboptimal methods that were  originally  designed  for  pen  and

       Anki's  primary  target is people studying Japanese, and Japanese native speakers studying
       English. However, it can be used to remember anything at all, and there are some users who
       are studying Chinese and possibly other languages with it.


       anki does not take command line options.  Its interface is entirely graphical.
