What is this? This is a modification of a previous deck: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/463280893 This is a list with the 4000 most frequently used German words, sorted by frequency. I made the following modifications: • Separated the sound into a new field • I stabilized the volume of the audio, so it is more or less the same volume on each card. • Some example sentences of this deck had very advanced words. I added a new field with more example sentences, that contain only beginner words. Of the 4000 cards, 2500 are covered with this field. • I added an optional field with very detailed translation of the word... so you have no doubts left about how to use the word. UPDATE 2018-06-10 • Removed annoying "clicks" in the audio. The audio is pretty good now. • Cards now have "English to German" All credits to the original author. Please go read the description of the original deck: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/463280893 -=-=-=-=-=- 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 -=-=-=-=-=- If this is useful to you, please rate it!~ https://frequencylists.blogspot.com.br/

Thank you for trying to even out the volume of the audio clips. There is still some background noise and clicks in one speaker's files, but I can deal with it.

Follow up: Thanks for updating the files to remove the clicks. I will reload and try again.
Comment from author before post was edited
The clicks in the audio have been removed in the new version of this deck.

Awesome work, thank you for sharing this. Just one thing: the words aren't coming up in order, i.e. from most frequent to least frequent. The original deck starts from "der, die, das" followed by "und" and "sein". On this deck the first word that comes up is "jedoch" followed by "stellen". Is this by design? Is there a way to put them by order of frequency? Thanks!

Thank you for the amazing work with this deck, but..

..the problem for me is, that the cards are showing only german -> english, without the reversed cards that the original deck has. I think this is a crucial part of the original deck.

I would love to use this instead of the original one, but for now, this deck is unfortunately useless for me.

Really good one.
As my german is already B2 level, I let just the audio in the front card, so it's like a "Diktat", it's great to improve the listening understanding
