I am a primary teacher in Wales in an English medium setting, specialised in the teaching of Welsh. All English medium setting schools teach Welsh as a second language. The potential for an effective flashcard platform is enormous. I believe it could transform the teaching of Welsh, and contribute significantly to actually saving the Welsh language from extinction!

In my opinion, the most promising setup is the following:

Front of the card: Child reads the English and tries to translate into Welsh (saying it aloud)
Back of the card: Printed Welsh and recorded Welsh. Child then chooses if they were correct or not, and select accrodingly for the card to be put at beginning, middle or end of the queue (mark as hard, middle or easy).

In order for the app to be successful, it needs the following, in my opinion:

     an effective algorithm so it adapts to individual children's performance
     a voice recording function for the BACK of the slide.
     an effective managing tool that allows teachers to set class work and to track individual students

Anki has much of this, but not an effective pupil managing tool, Would anyone be able to help? Any programmers out there willing to save the Welsh language?

    Hi,

    an effective algorithm so it adapts to individual children's performance

    Anki uses SM-2 algorithm, pherhaps you will need to modfy some settings respect to default values.

    a voice recording function for the BACK of the slide.

    this can be done already. Ctrl+V or menu->Record own voice.

    an effective managing tool that allows teachers to set class work and to track individual students

    You can get this kind of service on a paid Quizzlet account. Anki is meant to be used by the end user.
