Anki

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.

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.

Happy users

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.

Feedback

Please send your feedback by email. Feedback about the content or the format is more than welcome. I am also looking for various ways to use the raw data in other formats so it can be useful for learners. If you have any ideas, do share.
