This past question mentions an approach to using Anki for learning new vocab (as opposed to maintaining existing vocab) that looks interesting. It's apparently based on a system called Assimil and involves showing both sides of the card a few times before switching to one side only. I have been looking for something like this and would like to try it, but I'm not sure how to set it up in Anki - does anybody know? I can set up a card so that Q and A both show, but how do you get Anki to convert it to a standard card (or maybe prompt you to convert it) once you've seen it a certain number of times?
