I like the cards being bi-directional. The graphics also make it easier for me to recall the meaning of the words.
on 1684746769
Very good!

Very good set of cards and it's helped me retain a good number of words so far. I just wanted to drop this comment to note a few caveats.

- You should double check their word definitions with a Japanese dictionary. Even a machine-translated Japanese dictionary is often better than a J->E one. They give a definition of よく as meaning often, and maybe it often does, but that's only one of 6 definitions. It can also mean (to do something) fully, preferable, be glad (of someone's behavior), etc.

- Also, there sentence translations often are overly specific or lossy in nuance. They translate 3月は仕事が忙しい。as "I have a lot of work in March.", but 忙しい means "busy" and without looking it up, one might be mislead to think it means "a lot (of work)". In this sentence, that is indeed what it communicates, but a more literal translation might have been "In mark work gets really busy."

- The accent of the speakers is not what I'm used to. が often comes out a bit like "nnga" instead of the more percussive "gah" I'm more used to hearing. However, since a lot of my Japanese exposure comes from really well-trained voice actors with a specific accent designed for perfect diction, I'm not sure if this isn't a dialectical thing.

Anyway, great deck, just don't trust the translations and listen very intently for certain noises which the speakers in it don't pronounce with a lot of clarity.

Great deck, I did it in parallel to Genki I+II and together they can work magic.

#Caution - the next deck you want to do is #2 which is as nice as this one, but then skip it up to #6 till #10, and only after that get back to #5, #4 and #3 should be the last one!

#1-2 - N5 level
#6-10 - N5/N4
#5 - N4
#4 - N4/N3
#3 - N3 - the hardest one!

Картинки, аудио, текст - всë очень помогает. Хорошая колода.
on 1673733023
I really enjoyed using this deck for daily practise. Many many good words that you are gonna use fairly often.
on 1672787642
The best decks for Japanese by far! Very important that you focus on the bolded word in the sentence rather than clicking "hard" because you don't know another word. The sentence gives context and usage and grammar. You will learn the other words in the sentence you follow through the decks.
I studied these decks in Japan for an hour a day and spoke with Japanese people everyday. I used every single word I learned here. I did have a basic knowledge of Japanese before, but these decks and practicing speaking is what progressed me to a conversational level in months.

I am enjoying it. It has audio I can play to relisten easily. The pictures are really helpful.

Weird sentences that you're not likely to use very often. Not that it's bad. Just not practical.

The sentences in this deck are too simple and the choice of words is rather boring.
on 1662308028
I really like it! I find it very useful!

The only downside, IMO; is that some sounds are occasionally a bit weird (I'm referring to the G sound that sometimes seems an N sound: I've asked confirmation to one friend that have studied Japanese at University). Anyway, other than that I would recommend it

I wish there were similar ones for other languages that are less common: I would like to learn Albanian and Woloff through this kind of deck (spoken sentences with transcription in TL with [optional] translation in English)

Sentences are basic and the audio is not realistic. Other decks provide better sentences and audio.

I've edited cards as it won't test me for kanji: I'm reading cards in hiragana, studying this deck for a while and I am pretty satisfied. However I think I can say the deck will be efficient if you know enough grammar. I am saying this because I've tried to study with a similar deck but for korean which I have not enough knowledge of grammar and I couldn't keep up.

I found this deck quite helpful in terms of familiarizing myself with new vocabulary & kanji. The only drawback I can think of is the excessive use of words 彼 and 彼女 in sentences. Images didn't make much sense either. Nonetheless, it's a good deck for learning vocabulary in context and getting familiar with kanji.

It has this weird photo of a beefed-up half-naked dude under the word ”兄”, which makes people stare at me when doing Anki on public transit. Otherwise, a passable set, but I've seen more effective ones.

People say the pictures are weird or misleading, but really they're just purposefully eccentric (vast majority of the time). I'm a visual learner and I've never remembered vocab so quickly before, thanks to all these weird pictures. Also, if you notice, many of the pictures are actually a mnemonic for the kanji. So sometimes if a picture seems extra weird or "inaccurate, " first check if it almost looks like the kanji. It's likely just a mnemonic.

Thanks a lot though, this saved my butt. Though I do wish there weren't so many different fields or something. I have to go through like 4 "new" cards of the same material until I can actually see something new.

I really like this pack! It's great for listening comprehension, and a real challenge. I also use format for these cards when I create my own cards.
The large amount of cards was a bit overwelming at first but it's very manageble if you only have 5-10 new cards per day.

I just finished this deck. You don’t understand how much an audio based flash card helps. I’ve basically skyrocketed this past month. People complain about the pictures, that’s the point. Pictures that stick in your head.

I'm leaving this here for future people. Took me forever to figure this out but here's the explanation why there is 400 notes in this deck even though the original "iKnow Core 1000 Step 01" has only 100 words:

This deck actually contains all "iKnow! Core 1000 Step 01" and "iKnow! Core 1000 Step 02" words.
Those two steps consist of 200 words, as well as 200 example sentences, as extra notes, hence 400 notes in total.
If you take all of these Anki decks (Core 2000 Step 01-10) you have 2000 words, which is why I'm assuming the decks are called "Core 2000". These 2000 words correspond to the iKnow courses "Core 1000" and "Core 2000". I don't know why the uploader chose such a misleading title.

So if you finish all the 10 Steps of this Anki deck and you wish to continue using the "Core Vocabulary decks", you will need to look for "iKnow! Core 3000"

See iKnow! courses here: https://iknow.jp/content/japanese

It's a really good idea putting the audio and then later reviewing the audio by the phrase with Kanjis, this way I hear the audio in my mind while I'm reading the phrase so I assimilate the Kanjis

I really enjoy this resource so far. It will generally introduce a word and then in the next card show you an example sentence.
It is mostly entirely focuses on listening and comprehension, which I greatly appreciate, and then shows you the text afterwards.
The pictures are also interesting.

This deck might be difficult for someone who is starting from 0 knowledge of Japanese. I would recommend a basic knowledge of kana and simple grammar before attempting this deck.

Good deck

Definitely, it is very good deck. But some pictures are strange and illogical. It's just images of smiling scary snouts of office employeers from a stock photobank.

Also, there is another important thing - dialects. Some guys there saying "NA" instead "GA". I think they may be from Tohoku dialect.

Not the deck you are probably looking for.

This is not the Core2K/6K deck you are probably looking for. Go back to the guide and download from the link given.

Straight Forward

Simple straight forward vocab. Just the basics, audio, english, kana, picture. No clutter makes for a quick burn and learn deck.

Can somebody explain this to me?

There are 400 "notes" in each deck. When I download the decks, there are about 1,000 actual flashcards, more sentences than vocab, so I'm guessing it's 400 vocabulary words plus 600 practice sentences per deck, so wouldn't this be core 4000? 400 vocab words per deck x 10 decks.

Very good cards BTW.
