I've seen "Anki" mentioned several times here and I didn't know it was a deck/flashcard program. How helpful is it to expanding one's vocab? I think Duolingo also has a flashcard app but I haven't tried it yet.

Can you explain more about it? What's the basis of "flashcard programs"? :)

I haven't tried them too but I think it's similar to how we use flashcards when learnign the multiplication table or something. I'll try it after I finish the project I'm working on. Don't have a lot of time these days.

This thread about SRS might help you.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Anki and other SRS makes reviewing vocabulary more efficient; in that way, it contributes to expanding your vocabulary. It's not a very good tool for learning new vocab; just reviewing imo.
