Anki is a program which makes remembering things easy. Because it’s a lot more efficient than traditional study methods, you can either greatly decrease your time spent studying, or greatly increase the amount you learn.
Anki is available for Desktop, iPhone and Android. Once you install the app. Download the NithyaKannada Package (Eg: NithyaKannada_1.apkg ) and import into the App. Then start practising. I have screenshots below for your reference.

The table below is updated once a month. You can use to listen and learn. For daily use follow the daily feed.
All the raw audio files are available on Archive.org. You can download them from there. But I would suggest using flashcards if you are interested only in learning.
I’m a medical student at Manipal, and Hindi is my language at home. While we all have to learn ‘medical Kannada’ to speak with our patients, most of our students are not fluent in normal conversational Kannada. Something like “nāḷe sigōṇa” was new to me.
Thank you again for your work in this. I will share this with my friends.
