Why Use Anki French Flashcards?
If you are debating about whether to use digital French flashcards versus traditional French flashcards, there are several reasons why many French learners would choose Anki digital flashcards.
Anki is a Spaced Repetition flashcards software. It is based on the research findings of Hermann Ebbinghaus who found that our brain’s ability to remember information is limited. He developed the Forgetting Curve, which outlines the decline of memory retention over time. There have been a lot of research studies and academic linguists who have also explored the positive use of Anki and Spaced Repetition.

French pronunciation is important to learn because it is the foundation to help you really learn French.

All 3 French flashcards decks are critical to developing the necessary skills in French pronunciation and will provide you with a foundation for the sounds of the language.
Too often, French learners forget to learn the basics and that includes learning the French alphabet. As French is made up of sounds, learning the French alphabet will help you memorize the sounds of the language. This is key to help you speak, read and write in French. The French Alphabet flashcards deck gives you a a break down of the French alphabet as well as a French word example.
After familiarizing yourself with the French alphabet you can now learn the French IPA. The French IPA (French International Phonetic Alphabet) is a standardized representation of the sounds of the spoken language. The IPA is useful because the IPA of a word tells you how to pronounce it correctly in French in a standardized way. It is very helpful particularly when you start learning French vocabulary and you’re stuck because you don’t know how to pronounce a word correctly, so you can use the IPA to figure out the correct pronunciation.
Finally the French Minimal Pairs flashcards are useful to help you test your listening and pronunciation skills by comparing the difference between French minimal pairs. French minimal pairs are 2 words that sound similar are different in both spelling and meaning. As a French learner, you may come across these minimal pairs when conversing and find it difficult to distinguish between the 2 words. As a result, you may use the incorrect word. As a result, learning the French minimal pairs can improve your pronunciation skills as well as your listening comprehension. You’ll be able to fine-tune your ear and your mouth, especially for those sounds that unique to French, and not found in the English language.
