Why import into Anki?
Mandarin Study Guide strongly recommends Anki as learners’ primary vocabulary study tool. Spaced repetition is the most efficient way to review and retain previously studied material. However, creating new Anki decks can be a huge time sink. Fortunately, there are tons of pre-made Anki decks that are free and available online: Anki has tons of shared decks listed on their website and r/Anki is a great resource for finding even more. But, even if you cannot find the flashcards you’re looking for as pre-made Anki decks it is extremely easy to import other online flashcard decks into Anki. Quizlet in particular has almost as many pre-made decks as Anki and converting these flashcards to be Anki compatible is a breeze. Check out our tutorial below for step by step instructions on converting decks between these two systems. Also, let us know in the comments below if you’d like to know how to import other online flashcards into Anki. Happy studying!
