This deck is meant to train sentence-level (as opposed to word-level) pitch accent in Japanese. Seethis youtube video for an introduction to pitch accents. The front of the deck contains a sentence, your job is to recall and accurately reproduce the pitch of the whole sentence. You can verify this using the pitch graph animations and pitch markers on the back of the card. The general ideas are to 1. start to memorize common pitch patterns with words you already know 2. force you to pay extremely close attention to pitch accent, which may give you better pitch distinction This deck uses data from the Core2k/6k deck, and uses theJapanese Pronunciation add-on for pronunciation notation. Pitch graphs were generated using praat and python. Important drops are indicated, but are not perfect; so use common sense. Please click the contact author button and post a reply if you'd like the source code used to generate these animations, i'll gladly send you a copy if you want to modify or improve this deck.

Incredibly complete resource, the videos and audio are way better than what I would have ever done myself.

Really cool and hard deck, but I swapped the audio and kanji, for training listening.
