I would never flash card single words. If you or your student actually likes anki you could add the sentences in there with the target vocabulary clozed, but that sounds brutal to input with not much benefit.
At an intermediate level, anything that doesn't reappear repeatedly probably isn't worth memorizing. Only at an advanced level is it helpful to keep a list of interesting or rare words and expressions because they don't come up as often.

We hate Anki and couldn't make it work.

I think you should learn it in the way that works better for you. I personally always remembered new words better when I wrote them down somewhere. I perceive it better visually.

I'd get a copy of Fluent Forever. It is basically a book of how to make and use flash cards well. I'm actually going to assign it to my middle schooler as part of his foreign language class because I think knowing how to use flash cards well makes learning languages SO MUCH EASIER.
