I have finished the course I started more than a year ago. I would probably finish it earlier if it would not extend from 26 to 32 levels in the meantime, and now I hope it will stay at 32 :)
What is good about it is that many of the words were completely new and alien. Good thing that after learning them I started to see them in the books so my comprehension improved a lot.
Of course best thing is that the pronunciation is coupled with the words so I could familiarize myself with it and hopefully even spoken communication improved.
So if you want to learn some new words check it out: http://www.memrise.com/course/3093/advanced-vocabulary-2/
Or you may be interested in the new one I am starting right now: http://www.memrise.com/course/197810/audio-advanced-vocabulary/. This one has 4144 words so it could take me ten years to finish :)
If you do not know Memrise, the idea behind it is the same as for Anki. Both of them help you with spaced repetition. In practice, I cannot really claim I have learned any course as every day I have about 50 to 100 word to refresh. That may sound like a lot, but it is only small part of all the words from all the courses I have learned. Of course, this number should be smaller with time as repetitions are longer and longer every time you prove to remember the word. Happy learning! ;)
