Have you seem an Anki Deck called "Chinese sentences and audio, spoon fed" ? This deck is the same idea, but for danish. Here's how this deck was made: 1) I grabbed a list with the 5000 most frequently used danish words -- sorted from the most frequently used, to the least. 2) I grabbed 45 000 translated danish sentences from the internet 3) I wrote a program that assigns a Frequency Rank Number to each word from every sentence, this Frequency Rank Number based on the list mentioned on item "1)" 4) This program calculates the average value of the all the words' Frequency Rank Numbers. And assigns this value to the sentence. The result is that if a sentence contains advanced words, the sentence will have a high Average Frequency Rank Number. If a sentence contains only beginner words, the AFRN will be low. 5) Finally, I sorted the sentences: from the ones with the lowest AFRN, to the highest. The end result is that this deck begins with very, very simple sentences, and new words get slowly introduced as you progress. If it sounds complicated to you, here's in a nutshell: The 10 000 danish sentences from this deck are sorted from easiest to hardest, so they are ideal for beginners. - In the front of the card is the danish sentence audio, In the back of the card is the danish sentence, with the english translation, and the Frequency Rank Number for the words on the danish sentence. - If some sentences are too easy for you, just delete them (press Delete button on your keyboard) until a more challenging one comes up. You can also go to the computer version on Anki, click on the deck, "browse->current deck", and delete the first 5000 cards by mass-selecting with the Shift key. This way you will go straight to the harder cards. This can be useful for intermediate/advanced students who want a bigger challenge. -=-=-=-=-=- The following Anki add-on adds a Replay button to the Computer Version of Anki, and is recommended for this deck: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/498789867 The purpose of the audio in this deck is teaching and scholarship, and I'm not making money out of it: therefore it is considered "Fair Use". -=-=-=-=-=- Note: the deck ratings on Anki work different than the usual: - One "5 stars" rating show as a "3.5 stars" rating. - Two "5 stars" ratings show as a "3.8 stars" rating. - Three "5 stars" ratings show as a "4.1 stars" rating. - Four "5 stars" ratings show as a "4.3 stars" rating. And so on. -=-=-=-=-=- If this deck is useful to you, please rate it!~ https://frequencylists.blogspot.com.br/

Good deck, thanks for putting in the effort to get together these sentences.

I edited it to have flipped versions of the cards (English -> Danish), and use AwesomeTTS audio files (like you mentioned in another comment). Mind if I reupload the deck with those changes? The pronunciation is much much better, and the deck goes from 144MB to ~65MB, so it'd be useful to others.

You can do it ^^

Just include a message like this in the description: "This deck is based on: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1162908183"

Great work. These kind of decks are the best.

very very good and logical deck to learn, but is there another way to get a better translation sound quality?

Try the AwesomeTTS add-on (only available for Anki 2.0, if you have Anki 2.1 you might want to downgrade.)

The AwesomeTTS allows you to add text-to-speech audio to the Anki cards.

This is what the reviewer below meant with "On a few sentences I change the voice to Magnus or Sara using TTS" (He was referring to this add-on.)

I have been using this since several months and it has significantly improved my listening comprehension.
I use it along with audio of sentences curated from Memrise's "Learn with Locals"

the card order is not just as promised
Dear sharer, thank you for your response. I checked that and made sure that the cards are shown "in order added" and not just randomly.
Though even in the card browser the sentences with low appointed average (i.e. easy ones) are placed after sophisticated ones (ones that have greater average). waiting for the fix.
sincerely, Mehdi.

It is.

Click the Configs button, click Options, make sure the Card Order is not set to "random".

You can view the full contents of this deck (in the order that the cards are introduced) in the following link:

I will eventually update this deck to have a better sorting of sentences, though. Will post a note when it is updated.

I absolutely love this. Thank you I have doing both duolingo and pimsleur, but this might even be the best yet. I am new to Anki and I don't know if this is possible, but it would be nice if there were some way to flip things around so the front of the card is English and the reverse Danish with audio. It would be good to have both.

This is very good. Just a tip. Sometimes the computer audio isn't great but you can easily change it with the TTS add on. On a few sentences I change the voice to Magnus or Sara using TTS. Anyway this is an awesome deck! Mange tak for hjælpen!
