  1. Konnitchi-wwa, Ali-san. I was wondering if you do some quick workouts between your studying sessions? That really helps in making brain work more efficiently! 😀

  2. I don’t know if this is the right place to ask but I have a question about anki. When I am done with one course and I don’t need to learn this stuff anymore, can I/how can I put this course on ‘silence’? I don’t want to remove all the made flashcards because maybe I will need them one day but I don’t want to learn them anymore, if this makes sense? After that I’m done with one course, I want to focus on the upcoming course.

  3. ali, question! while studying languages via flashcards: anki flashcards, should I have English on front or on back?

  4. Can I know why are you using a computer a laptop plus and an iPad. I’m starting college and would love to know the strategy behind it. I’ve seen video of other student using the technique…

  5. This looks very good, but aren't your Anki notes a bit too heavy on information? See the minimum information principle discussed here, for example: (fourth rule).

    I recognize that breaking it up more would slow down the note-taking/card-adding phase, but I think it would make the actual learning phase far more efficient.

  6. commenting because if u can do it i can do because of the one tiny unifying fact that we’re both pakistani

  7. Oh my god. You are literally one of the top 3 youtube channels I ever found. I NEEDED THIS SO BADLY RIGHT NOW!!!!!! P.S. I did NOT realize you are Pakistani background.. love you even more now.. I'm Indian!!

  8. I like studying and education is something I live so much and also like to type stuff which I study and make notes but I don’t know y but I’m so much sad and disappointed after watching the videos and do nothing

  9. This might be off topic but how do you manage to study for a long period of time without feeling headache because of looking at the screen a lot??? 😭

  10. What will happen if we ask this man to study by giving only a pen, a book and a dictionary without using all those devices…😂😂

  11. how can someone be so productive? like howwwwww? even in the break, he learnt a new language like whaaaaaaaaaaa………some people really are god's favorites

  12. "I consider writing. My own notes a waste of time, where as others have already done the work for me". Yes boiiiiiiii 😎😂

  13. Feel free to ask me any questions about Japanese! I watched your videos a lot when I was doing my masters, and this one was my favourite during exam weeks!
