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.
For those who cannot sort by chapter number... create a filtered deck according to your progress.
Be aware I may have renamed my deck so you might have to type something else into the search.
Tools-> Create Filtered Deck...
Search: "deck:Minna1" ("chapter number:1")
Search: "deck:Minna1" ("chapter number:1" or "chapter number:2" or "chapter number:3")
Basically the Search at the creation of filtered decks is the SAME Search function as in Browse. So I also advise you to test your output of your search term there first!!! and look at what it spits out. After you are satisfied with your search term just copy paste the search term from your Browse Decks to the search field of Create Filtered Deck.
(Quality of Life)
What you can also do after this to shorten the Search term is create a Filtered Deck of each chapter, go to Browse, select the filtered deck of this chapter (let's assume chapter 6), select all cards in this chapter, right click, Add Tag, type in "ch6" for example (whatever you do don't use spaces here), done. Now you can search for this chapter by typing into the search field
deck:Minna1 (tag:ch1 or tag:ch2 or tag:ch3 or tag:ch4)
almost at the end of the book?
all chapters except the last 3:
deck:Minna1 -(tag:ch25 or tag:ch24 or tag:ch23)
I read the previous comments or other posts about this issue on Reddit, some people explained how to sort this deck by chapters but whether it's in the app or on the website I can't find the "sort by field" option (not sure this is how it's called). From the phone app, all the options I have when I finally manage to find the different fields are: "clear", "clone from", "translation" and "pronunciation".
Maybe this possibility is not available anymore in 2018/19?
Very promising deck, very useful and I was about to write "but the thing is that you cannot sort it by chapter numbers".
Even after an hour searching for the solution, I couldn't get away from this deck like this and I found how to sort by chapter number!
If you want to use this deck as a companion while studying the book, I think this is mandatory.
Please be sure you have synchronised all your decks and maybe perform of check of the database.
Go to "Browse Decks"
- Select the deck "Japanese"
- Click the "Fields" button under the list of cards
- In the new window, select the field "Chapter Number"
- and tick "Sort by this field in the browser"
So now, I can sort by chapters and schedule according to the ones I already studied... Great!
Disclaimer: I'm still studying the MNN 1-1 portion of the deck as of this review, meaning I have not gotten to MNN 1-2 yet.
This deck makes you remember the meaning of the words, as well as making you remember the Japanese words given the meaning. It works well except for when the author wrote it such that some phrases have the same English meaning. For example, 行っていらっしゃい translates to so long, as well as 行って参ります, so when you see "So Long.", you will have to remember both at the same time to make sure you're correct, which can lead to some frustration.
Fortunately as far as the rest goes, I've encountered no problems whatsoever.
This deck fills a gaping hole in Minna no Nihongo flash card collections, and is structured very well. My only gripe is that I can't seem to review them by chapter number, but I assume that's because I don't know how to use Anki that well.
Cheers for the hard work, mate!
