Anki Tutorial 1: How To Install and Set Up Anki, AnkiWeb, and Dropbox (Mac)

Note 8/18/2022: This is an older blog post containing information about using the Anki software to create flashcards for language learning.

Fluent Forever now offers a proprietary app that automates flashcard creation, letting you concentrate on your learning progress. Check out the 13 languages available in the app, and download it here to start your journey to fluency.

With the advent of Anki 2.0, this tutorial is (thankfully) obsolete! Anki2 handles media on its own servers, so you don’t need to worry about synchronizing your pictures and audio with dropbox. I’m leaving this tutorial here for anyone who prefers using Anki 1. (The update fixed a lot of things but changed a lot of behavior. If you’re just starting out, don’t worry about it. Go get Anki 2.)

This shows you the whole installation and setup process to get Anki syncing across multiple devices. If you’re just using one computer, skip this step! I’ll get a PC version done as soon as possible, though PC users should be able to follow the Mac version without many changes.

To help you speed up vocabulary building, I highly recommend you check out these 11 pro tips for the fastest way to learn a language. Keep at it!
