Why Use Anki German Flashcards?
If you are debating about whether to use digital German flashcards versus traditional German flashcards, there are several reasons why many German 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. If you are not familiar with the research behind Spaced Repetition and Anki, you can read more about here.
The use of Anki German flashcards can help you learn German from the beginner level all the way to fluency by allowing you to overcome the Forgetting Curve. Many language learners enjoy the use of Anki flashcards because it allows you to harness the power of Anki’s Spaced Repetition and therefore allow you to learn, memorize and retain German in your long-term memory. This means that you do not have to manage the review scheduling of your flashcards and is a huge benefit for language learners with limited time. All you need to do is use Anki on a daily basis and review the cards that are prompted by Anki. Then, Anki takes care of the rest for you and automatically monitors your progress, showing you flashcards that you need to review before you forget them.
While there are physical flashcards and other German flashcard apps on the market, Anki’s unique ability to space out flashcard reviews automatically using a Spaced Repetition algorithm is one of the main reasons why many German learners prefer using Anki. It is through the use of Spaced Repetition that you are able to remember information for longer periods of time. With the use of Anki daily, you’ll be able to retain German far better than any other comparable tool on the market.
Apart from it’s scientifically proven results, Anki is also one of the most affordable options for German learners. Anki is well-known because it is an open source software and is free to use.

“This is great! I gave up last year because I just couldn’t handle making my own cards. I absolutely despised creating my own. It was like a full-time job. So for your cards to get me to 90% – I think I can get there (finally)!“
Douglas von Kohorn – CEO & Founder of Rhombus
“I had previously bought the 625 German word pack and it was EXCELLENT, thank you! Because it was so great, I ordered the whole German bundle. Thanks for all you’ve done so far, it’s a really incredible product you’ve developed!“
James J Cook
“I chose you because I wanted convenience, I dont have time to make the deck myself and you did a much better job. The cost of me making the deck, spending time vs the time to start learning makes it a great deal.”
Tim de Jardine – Chief Product Officer at Fit For Free
German Pronunciation Flashcards
If you want to improve your German pronunciation, there are 3 German flashcards decks that we’ve created to specifically help you improve your German accent and enunciation of German sounds. We’ve developed German flashcards for Anki that tackle the common problems of German pronunciation that leave many learners struggling.
German pronunciation is important to learn because it is the foundation to help you really learn German. If you really want to reach German proficiency, and you want to build a closer relationship with German speakers, then you’ll want to develop your ability to speak with native-like pronunciation. If you are finding it difficult to pronounce words correctly or feel embarrassed speaking to native speakers because of you are afraid of misunderstandings, then the German Pronunciation Bundle is what you need.
The German Pronunciation Bundle provides a holistic approach in learning all areas of German pronunciation. You will learn the German alphabet, German IPA and the German minimal pairs. All 3 German flashcards decks are critical to developing the necessary skills in German pronunciation and will provide you with a foundation for the sounds of the language.
Too often, German learners forget to learn the basics and that includes learning the German alphabet. As German is made up of sounds, learning the German alphabet will help you memorize the sounds of the language. This is key to help you speak, read and write in German. The German Alphabet flashcards deck gives you a a break down of the German alphabet as well as a German word example.
After familiarizing yourself with the German alphabet you can now learn the German IPA. The German IPA (German 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 German in a standardized way. It is very helpful particularly when you start learning German 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 German Minimal Pairs flashcards are useful to help you test your listening and pronunciation skills by comparing the difference between German minimal pairs. German minimal pairs are 2 words that sound similar are different in both spelling and meaning. As a German 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 German 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 German, and not found in the English language.
Our German Pronunciation Bundle comes with all 3 flashcards decks for you to help you master German pronunciation and retain everything you learn. These flashcards are not sold separately as we have found that the majority of German learners use all 3 flashcard decks, whether they are at the beginner, intermediate or advanced level.
