In exchange for basically playing a video game for 10-20 minutes a day (or longer, if you wish), you can more or less upload data into your brain, and Anki will take care of getting it deeper and deeper into your long-term memory.
Use Anki to put an entire language inside your brain, and your brain will put it together into a fluent language. It’s terrifically fun.
