External courses for beginners
All of the courses below suggest you use flashcards or even directly tell you to use a specific spaced repetition system - Anki (another free and partially open source system) to help you learn and remember vocabulary. Transcrobes includes a flashcard/spaced repetition system that is highly optimised for learning language, and learning Mandarin Chinese in particular. Click on the links below to get ready-made resources specifically for each course (and each lesson!) for importing into Transcrobes so you can easily use the Transcrobes flashcard functionality while following along with the courses.
External information sites
Hacking Chinese website has a lot of great free resources. I have no knowledge of their paid courses but if the free resources are anything to go by, they will also be excellent.
