The author has shared 3 other item(s).


This a revised deck that combines words from several online and offline resources into one deck. This deck includes distinct senses of the words as separate cards. It also has a primary meaning, secondary meaning and parts of speech in edition to the kanji and kana. This deck has the kanji whether the actually kanji characters are on the JLPT list or not, so there will be some more difficult kanji in this deck. Also, the background has been adjusted to 150 to be easy on the eyes and make it easier for you to remember the cards.

this deck is awesome
has a large selection of words (most N4 decks have around 600 words, this one has almost 700)
the font is cool, nice and easy to read. Nice layout.

I noticed that there's a slight confusion in some words that have the same reading. The author put a kanji that doesn't match all the definitions of the reading itself, like even though there's a word 上手い that has the same reading as 美味い it doesn't mean that they are the same. Just one of them means "skilled", the other one means "delicious". So it would be nice to fix that ^^

Also, it would be nice to add one example for each word

Anyone talking about the Kanji: If you have a problem why don't you just NOT use the kanji? You can easily adjust the card to show ONLY the KANA. I personally swapped the KANJI word to KANA and added another field smaller below that for the KANJI, so I can still slowly start to get used to reading the Kanji but I can learn the words first/faster by reading the KANA.

It would be a good deck if it were just like the Ultimate N5 vocab one.
It uses kanjis on words that are normally seen in hiragana. I don't think there is much you would get out of it tbh. You will be wasting time learning Kanji on vocabulary that hardly uses them.
It would be fixed if it had notes on which words are usually written in hiragana. Or maybe only showing N4 kanji(?)

Sad because I really enjoyed the N5 one.

Les mots sont en gras et les kanji sont juste illisible... tristesse.

Loving this deck

I'm doing this having just finished RTK. This deck is awesome. The fact that you get both E->J and J->E means that half the time, the "new" cards are just testing if you know the word well enough to translate it back the other way. I don't have the same issue as the other reviewer about synonyms; if there are multiple translations I just try to remember all of them. For synonyms and other I always keep WWWJDIC open in a tab so I can get some example sentences with translation to figure out the nuances of new words. And the non-jyouyou kanji are fine - you should learn them anyhow!

Great job!

Too much overlap between similar words

This deck appears to include all the words necessary for the N4.

But there is far too much overlap in the keywords. With five or six words for "all" and "very", for example, which one is the correct answer? This deck does not provide sufficient context in the E to J cards, and studying is a frustrating experience.

Also, there is a lot of (rare) kanji in the deck, which makes it harder to get to the fundamentals. Sure, it's great to know the kanji for "mochiron". But if you are trying to remember what "mochiron" means, adding the additional step of trying to remember that these particular kanji mean "mochiron." This is especially true when the word is almost always written in kana.

This deck would be a lot more helpful without all of the superfluous kanji and with more care taken to distinguish between closely related words and synonyms. It's presented as a "JLPT N4" deck, so it should be tailored to the test.
