Now that I live in Japan and am surrounded by technology, I have decided to upgrade my phone and start using this G3 technology everyone is talking about. I just got the new android google phone. That alone is pretty cool, but what I am loving about it is that I just installed Anki. Anki is an application for language learners like ourselves and is basically a fancy flashcard application. The application will remember which vocabulary you are having trouble memorizing and continue to ask you at certain intervals. From their website:
Anki is a spaced repetition system (SRS). It helps you remember things by intelligently scheduling flashcards, so that you can learn a lot of information with a minimum amount of effort.Check them out here. Anki is from Japanese 暗記する(Anki suru) which means to memorize. Anki is perfect for learning all those hanzi without the need for thousands of flashcards. Those flashcards get dirty and take a ton of space.
