Needs more fields, such as infinitive field so all of same verb can be grouped together. Should be sorted by importance instead of current order.

The deck is pretty well put together. I am using it to help learn the present, preterite, imperfect, conditional and future tenses. I have not seen yet any other tenses which suits me fine. Other reviewers indicate there are a few cards with problems. I have not seen any yet, but I'm only a week into using it.

One more mistake: "We give" = "damos" (not "damose") please fix this.
And one more: "We do" – "hacemos" not "hacmos"!

Good revision deck

Good enough, but one important thing is missing: the second-person plural of each verb.
And there is another imperfection.
The verb "to like" in Spanish becomes "(me/te/le/nos/os/les) gusta/gustan", NOT "gusto, gustas, gusta, etc.". *
"Gustar" is the infinitive, and it only has the third person, singular and plural depending on the subject ("the thing(s) or the person/people you like").

*A few examples:
1) I like = Me gusta(n);
2) You like = Te gusta(n) OR Os gusta(n);
3) He/She/It likes = Le gusta(n)
Gusto, gustas, gusta... actually mean I taste, you taste, he/she tastes...
I hope this is clear!

Started using the deck and found an error within the first few cards. Aprendi means I learned not I leaned. Discontinued using this deck

Very useful with some curious errors and imperfections.

After a couple of weeks training with these I find them very useful. I have by no means seen all cards yet, so the remaining criticism mayt be partially incorrect.
There do not appear to be any 'vosotros' forms which are only used in spain, but this makes it easier to use You as it will never mean you plural "you all" - and that might be the way to go on including vosotros forms.
I have also not seen any subjuntivo forms yet, nor have I encountered past forms in the imperfecto. Maybe further on?
Gustar is treated as a normal verb, which is confusing because you would normally use only the third person singular and plural i.e. gusto and gustas do not occur normally: me gusta y me gustan. to me is pleasing, to me are pleasing.
There is no verb perdir! Infinitive should be perder.
Nevertheless, I have the book '500 verbs' but this makes it so much easier to practice.
