  5. Automatic Anki intergration


Automatic Anki intergration

How about having an option to connect Your Duolingo acc to your anki deck Each time you learn a new word in Duolingo it automatically adds that word (with sound) to a deck in anki for later offline study Possibly also adding cards on grammar and conjugations as you learn them too

Also possibly the ability to create custom decks from our vocabulary list I.e. check boxes with a button "Add to Deck" and a drop down for the deck To create decks like "Words I'm Struggling With"

How about Memrise integration, while we're at it? http://www.memrise.com/


Yes! I would love Memrise integration.


this is a BRILLIANT idea! At a minimum, make the vocabulary lists downloadable into an excel file for those who want to import into anki.


I would even be happy if Duolingo had a feature to look up/add your own vocabulary. For example, if you want to learn a word you type it in. Sort of like when you're making a list on Memrise.


Duolingo's SRS system is horrible. For example, the first time duolingo shows me the word "elefante" I get it right, yet it continues to show it to me like 5 times in the same lesson, and then continue showing it to me some unadjustable number of days later. They need to incorporate a version of anki, at least for learning nouns. The main thing Anki does better is get user input on how hard the word was. The first time Anki shows me "elefante", I can either press "suspend card" if I never need to see it again, or I can hit "easy" and it will raise the number of days before I see it again.


Hello. After some consideration decided to write my own program for exporting vocabulary to Anki. It has 3 main features:

• Imports words from Duolingo

• Adds pronunciation using Google text to speech (3-4 minutes)

• Adds images using Google images (sometimes they absolutely irrelevant 10-15 min)

And finally it exports data to text file compatible with Anki

This sounds really useful, could you explain how to use it? I'm new to working with Excel, thanks.


Hi, recently choose another language to learn and found some bugs in macro. (worked only for Spanish leaners who knows English). Sorry guys who downloaded it previously

• Import tab. fill A4 cell – login, A7 – password (if you use facebook or google+ account you are unlucky it will not work), A10 path for Anki program https://apps.ankiweb.net/ (all images & audio folder) Press Import data (wait about 30 secs)

• Load sounds tab. A22 pronunciation speed. A25 language from combo (google usually has male & female voice engines) Press load (wait about 10 min)

• Image tab. A34 change google.nl to google.it if you want Italian pictures Press load (wait about 5 min)

• And then export to Anki (look at the pictures)

• Import to knew deck in Anki

Congratulations! I think almost nobody reached here. If you have any questions or suggestions please write to my email (which you can find in the excel file)


This would be cool, memrise integration would be lovely as well. Although most of the exercises on duolingo are adequate some words do not appear as often as I would like and need some more practice!


Good idea. I would love that!


Would be superlovely. A power tool.


Words with audio shouldn't be too hard I'd imagine but the grammar etc might be a bit more difficult



I have Grammar Drills with Anki.
Here is an example. I hit the Conjugate Button in my Duolingo lesson for the Word Lese/Read. Open Anki and Creat New Deck Title Deck, Conjugate Lese/Read I then Cut and Paste from DuoLingo to Anki I make sure there are two cards written per example, 1 German-English and the other 2 English-German.

Front- Ich Lese Back- I read

Front-I read Back-Ich Lese

Front-Du Liest Back-You Read

Front-You Read Back-Du Liest

And so on!

Bis bald!



Yep thats exactly what I'm trying to avoid doing Far too time consuming and tedious I'd get about 3 cards done before giving up


Maybe less than 10 Minutes per Deck AND you reinforce the learning.

With that said I would love to see this sort of thing integrated with Duolingo.


LATE EDIT-Richard, I would be glad to share my Anki Verb Conjugation Cards with you as I make and learn them.


I am an Anki Super Freak. This is a GREAT idea. (Anki is an incredible FREE Flash Card Software, everyone from Med Students to Language Students use it)


It would be nice if they did it. Barring that, copying into Excel has given me good results. In spanish, I took the Adverb section and created a deck in about 15 minutes. I haven't come up with a way to do easy conjugation cards.
