       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 paper.

       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
