Genki online vocab flashcards

Postby Gabkicks » Tue 04.08.2008 10:11 pm

I made some digital flashcards over at http://www.quia.com/jg/1346607.html
for vocabulary on pages 134-135. I'm just gonna do the 30 day trial and probably wont pay for the full membership... Anyone know of any free flashcard making programs similar to this? :?
My vocabulary is pretty weak, so I'm going to to make some flashcards for the other vocabulary sections of the book as well.

People these days seem to be going the route of Spaced Repetition Systems (SRS for short) rather than traditional flashcards in digitized format. I actually haven't jumped on that bandwagon just yet, but people who use it really really like it.

So you might want to take a peek at Anki. I think there's other SRS programs out there, but Anki is frequently recommended and is the only one I know off hand.

I couldn't figure Anki out, but I used Mnemosyne as an SRS. Maybe my version of Anki was screwed up...otherwise I don't know why people would like it :/

anki seems to be a pretty good aid in building vocabulary. of course nothing really substitutes making full sentences and communicating with others, but it helps. After I finish adding all the genki I vocabulary, I'll post it on this website for others to use. :P

i'll check out Mnemosyne too when i get home

at http://ichi2.net/anki/index.html , the Anki main page, the developer has posted video files showing how to use Anki. That should help you figure it out.

I like it as it's versatile and the developer is always getting and providing feedback on the program.

Thanks for the tip on renshuu, p-chanさん. I gave it a go yesterday on your recommendation and wow! I really like it! I just started the Genki text and I think this will be a great supplement. I haven't yet signed on as a member but I most probably will before the end of this week.

Thanks again!
