    Very similar in look and function, to Anki. Mnemosyne isn't as customizable, but it's easier on beginners.

  3. Learning with Texts

    • FreeOpen Source

    Learning with Texts (LWT) is a free tool for Language Learning by reading & listening to texts, saving & reviewing vocab. Prerequisites are an installed LAMP/WAMP/MAMP (local web server & database) software and a modern web browser.

    This alternative is disputed. Learning with Texts is still a legitimate alternative to Anki, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
