Using the word in a sentence on the card or including some kind of key tip regarding the word’s pronunciation is fine. Adding more facts about the words can be handy, if you find additional interesting tidbits in a dictionary or online. If you do that, add that info to the 'Extra info on the back of both cards' field.

You can take it a step further by using the list as a starting point to learn the grammar of the whole language: Some of us did that for Japanese and it's what we'd recommend to anyone who has a feel for how Anki works. Adding sentence flashcards is more complex than adding picture word flashcards, but the sentence ones work better.

Note, that we'd recommend choosing one approach or the other. Either make full on sentences and make a bunch of flashcards from each sentence, or make picture flashcards and make 2-3 flashcards per word (you can go relatively quickly through those). We've found that the middle route - adding example sentences to basic picture cards - is not super helpful, because you'd tend not to really absorb them unless you add a lot of additional flashcards teaching you the various parts of that sentence.

Note: As of September 12th 2019, we no longer provide official support for our Anki based pronunciation trainers and word lists. You are more than welcome to still purchase and use them, but the support we are able to offer for these products is limited. For supported languages, these materials are already built into the Fluent Forever app.
