After the file is downloaded, double-click on it to open it in the desktop program.
At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.
The example sentences are often really weird and sometimes not connected to the learned word.
I use this deck to review vocabulary that I should already know but have forgotten. For doing that, this deck is decent (a few mistakes such as 字 being translated to city).
Some negative points/things to be aware of:
- the audio is computer generated rather than a native speaker. That means it is missing the pitch accent, which is kind of necessary if you want to speak like a native.
- the example sentences are beyond bad. If you are new to Japanese please don't waste your time trying to learn them. In many cases they are flat out wrong for the vocabulary presented. Even in cases where they are not wrong, they are often not useful or not suitable for N5.
I recommend following the links to the online dictionaries to check other example sentences. The 'Japanese core 2000' decks are excellent resources for example sentences once you have a few hundred words of vocabulary and basic grammar.
I've had to edit something like 10-20 of the cards because they were simply factually wrong. For example, ワイシャツ doesn't mean "white shirt", it means "Y shirt", like opposed to T-shirt, i.e. dress shirt. It's 和製英語. I've forgotten the others, but there were quite a few that I had to correct for one reason or another. Good thing I know most of this vocab already or I'd be in real trouble.
Also, the example sentences are just horrific. Most of them don't contain the vocab work, and have either a homophone or just have no relationship at all to the card.
Can anyone help? What does "ruby" mean in "Target Word with Ruby"?
I'll try and keep my question to a minimum, google provided no insights this time.
I know some Hiragana and next to no Katakana but this deck seems well fleshed out.
I'll check back to see if anyone has responded
I highly recommend this deck for anyone starting to learn Japanese JLPT N5 Vocabulary as it is perfect in almost every regard.
If i was to make a bad comment about it, it would be to add English voice as well as i also try to learn by listening to the Japanese pressing space and listening to the English to see if i got the word right by speech (It would be tiresome to keep opening and shutting your eyes when using this method) but considering this has 650 terms in it i understand why it wasn't added :)
Nice job :)
I gave three stars and I'm here to learn and improve my hiragana and more. The audio and everything is fine, the vocabulary and all are perfect. But what bothers me is that most of the cards does not have the audio and secondly when u give an example for the Japanese statement, you should right the romaji version too because I'm sure many of us here do not want know how to read it plus, we all want to learn how to construct sentences too but if we do not know how to read the sentence how to we learn?
The vocabulary is nice, and the audio is mostly fine, but the deck far from perfect. Some words don't have audio at all, the audio for all multi-syllable counter/measure-words are messed up, at least an Android (if it's the tilde character causing issues, why not use a dash instead?).
But the major issue with this deck is examples: they are simply horrible. Many use a different english word in the sentence translation and in the simple word translation above. Some use kanji in the example but kana for the simple translation (even for the same word/reading). Many use really weird and unusual/regional english expression, which could have been replaced with more literal but perfectly fine english sentences (this is especially hard for non-native english speakers that don't have the luxury to have access to Japanese learning material from their mother tongue). Most use advanced vocabulary not yet introduced, and probably too advanced to be in the N5 deck anyway.
Thank you, this is really helpful.
For this great deck!
That's one of the best voca-deck.
I do hope you'll do N3-2-1 :)
The quality of this deck shows how much effort was put into it! Well done & thanks!
Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-bound - in short, manageable for my level of Japanese, so I think this will be more effective. Will update you all with my progress, but with my meager experience, this will work for me.
I Switched to this deck from the Ultimate N5 deck for one simple reason, this one includes example sentences which clears up a lot of confusion about what the word actually means. Thanks for this amazing deck.
