¿Te Acuerdas?, or, Mnemosyne to the Rescue

I’ve been experimenting with using Mnemosyne, a nifty open source flashcard/spaced repetition application, to learn Spanish. While I like the tactility of 3×5 flashcards for generic vocab study, studying oral questions is slightly harder; you need to have a volunteer to quiz you. Mnemosyne comes in handy:  I can record an audio clip and use that clip as basically one side of a flashcard. As a bonus, I’m helping the interesting research currently being done in spaced repetition algorithms for long-term memory.
