Unless you are super tech savvy, learning how to use Anki can be a bit
of a struggle. One of the most helpful things for those who are just
getting started is simply knowing where to look for answers.
Although the Fluent Forever team strives to provide personalized
support for its Anki based products, Anki has it's own support site
which is a rich source of information regarding many of the problems
users have encountered over the years. The creator of Anki himself
answers questions here quite frequently. Therefore, one of the first
places we look when we run into problems is the official Anki Support
Site. Almost any question you can think of has already been asked
and answered at this site. To use this resource simply follow [this

highlighted in red in the image below.

possible. Some of the information is a bit technical, so feel free to

later when you are ready.
