I found myself the very efficient way to learn Korean, especially the new words and terms. Anki is recommended for everyone who are struggling trying to remember the words without carrying any notebook.

WHAT is ANKI?

Anki is digital version of flashcard, which uses the SRS (Spaced Repetition System), it is the presentation method that gives you the information before you would forget it, to keep the information always stays fresh in your mind. You will see the word a few minutes after first time, then some days later, and some weeks later… to keep the words always stay fresh in your mind.
