How can I use better the app Anki I use a app called 'Ankidroid I think some people have heard about it. So, I am learning more than one language at same time, I would like to know if it is better I use the decks I have downloaded or it is better I create every one for the language that I am learning. What do you think?

I have usually heard it is better to create your own decks. 

Also, if you want to be able to actually speak the language, instead of just understand it, it is better to put the word in your native language on the front of the cards, so that you have to remember the word in your target language for the backside.  I learned this the way hard way.  I put the word in my target language on the front and then found many times I ¨know¨ the word in Anki because I can recognize what it means, but later when I want to say the word in conversation my memory failed me because I did not know it well enough to remember exactly all the sounds or spelling.

Here is a video with some of the tips that I use---  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5ccduvnGZ0    I watch shows in my target language with subtitles in my target language on my computer.  I pause and put words I do not know into Anki.  It is also best to always include a complete sentence using the word because words are learned better in context.
