Anki cloze – type answer

Previously, I told you how to use a ready-made deck, how to set up your own cards, about useful functions. Next time I’ll tell you about automatic sound for your cards. And this time about Anki Cloze. And not simply Cloze, but with typing answer.

Anki for German language. 1. Studying

For ten years I have tried different word memory programs. The main problem was that I was not satisfied with the translation “word to word”. For German language it’s simply not enough. Only at the very first stages of learning you can use “naked” word without article and forms.
