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.
And one more: "We do" – "hacemos" not "hacmos"!
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!
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.
