This week i have been preparing to move back to university, and have been streamlining my workflow for learning chinese. Recently i have been neglecting certain aspects, and in general doing far too many flash cards.
I know that a lot of people swear by anki, but i am less convinced. Often the cards used are low quality, so the information recall can be hardly that helpful either. Instead, i have been increasing the amount of reading i do, which should have the same general effect as word flashcards, but with added context of sentences and plot.
Maybe i will learn slower this way. But actually i don't mind because i'm currently learning for fun and drilling flashcards is not fun.
