The deck can be used by absolute beginners. It covers all grammar points at least for the JLPT 5 and 4. Each grammar point has examples and explanations from different ressources (Genki, Bunpro, Tae Kim...). They also have native examples from anime with translation, screenshot and native sound. You can see all the lessons covered in this deck here. CONTENT - Introduction to give an overwiew of the language. - Multiple examples from both textbooks and anime for each grammar point (which is highlighted in the sentence). - Each sentence has an english translation. - Anime examples also have a screeshot and the native sound. - Short description, explanation for the grammar. - The grammar's structure. - A Reference tab for all sources used, with hyperlinks, or lesson/chapter title. - One tab per source so you can get an explanation from a different perspective. SOME INFO - The first subdeck will give you a short introduction on how japanese works: the writing system, sentence structure, politeness level... - The second one is the grammar lessons, one card by lesson. - The lessons are regrouped thematically which helps relates points together interdiction, order, comparison ...) and introduce new concepts slowly. - Sentences are usually taken from textbooks and chosen because there's only grammar that you've seen before (with exceptions). - I tried to follow the same method as much as possible for the anime sentences. - The point is to understand grammar and not to memorize vocabulary so I try to pick sentences with easy structure and common vocabulary. - The lessons are also regrouped by JLPT levels. - The deck is made to have the grammar + examples on the front and explanations + translation on the back. - Deck works on phones and ankiweb too. HOW TO USE I tried to compile as much information as possible but also make the deck easily customizable to suit your preferences. I left instructions in the styling part of the card style. How to display or hide information ? In the styling part of the card style, you can choose what to display on the card or not. You can choose between textbooks examples, native examples, both, none, grammar explanations ... Add "none" after "display: " to hide the section you don't want. How to change card's order ? There are several order that you can choose from. You can also go from one to the other without losing progress. - Chronology is the one by default. It follows roughly the jlpt levels, organize grammar points thematically and by difficulty. - Genki / Tae Kim will follow the order of either resource. - Frequency. I used either Morphman or Anki own's brower to look up how many times the grammar point appears. It's taken from a corpus of 405 940 anime cards. Some data is missing due the nature of the grammar point, like conjugations for example. So if you use the frequency order, they'll be at the bottom, be careful of that. Some particle could also have different meanings, and I don't have a way to differenciate the two, so they have the same number. The Advanced Browser will make things easier. Go to browser mode, pick the deck, click on "Fields...". Pick one of the fields: "Chronology" (default), "Order_JLPT" or "Order_Genki_Chapter"... In the options below, select "Sort by this field in the browser". Use the Sort Field column. Select all your cards, click on "Cards", "Reposition..." and ok. It will reorder the cards, and you won't lose your progress. How to deal with the sound ? Even if you hide the anime examples from the card, if the sound is included on the template, it will play automatically. To deal with this, click on the deck's option "Jo-Mako - Japanese Grammar". On the general tab, there's is the option to disable "Automatically play audio". I disabled it by default. There's a scrip in the styling part of the card to copy paste on the front or back template if you want to play the sound automatically.

Tabs_TaeKim Declaring something is so and so using 「だ」 Vocabulary 人 【ひと】 – person 学生 【がく・せい】 – student 元気 【げん・き】 – healthy; lively *Used as a greeting to indicate whether one is well One of the trickiest part of Japanese is that there is no verb for the state-of-being like the verb “to be” in English. You can, however, declare what something is by attaching the Hiragana character 「だ」 to a noun or na-adjective only. (We will learn about na-adjectives in the section on adjectives later.) Declaring that something is so using 「だ」 Attach 「だ」 to the noun or na-adjective Example: 人+だ=人だ Examples 人だ。 Is person. 学生だ。 Is student. 元気だ。 Is well. Seems easy enough. Here’s the real kicker though. A state-of-being can be implied without using 「だ」! You can say you’re doing well or someone is a student without using 「だ」 at all. For example, below is an example of a very typical greeting among friends. Also notice how the subject isn’t even specified when it’s obvious from the context. Typical casual greeting A:元気? A: (Are you) well? B:元気。 B: (I’m) well. So you may be wondering, “What’s the point of using 「だ」?” Well, the main difference is that a declarative statement makes the sentence sound more emphatic and forceful in order to make it more… well declarative. Therefore, it is more common to hear men use 「だ」 at the end of sentences. The declarative 「だ」 is also needed in various grammatical structures where a state-of-being must be explicitly declared. There are also times when you cannot attach it. It’s all quite a pain in the butt really but you don’t have to worry about it yet. Conjugating to the negative state-of-being Vocabulary 学生 【がく・せい】 – student 友達 【とも・だち】 – friend 元気 【げん・き】 – healthy; lively *Used as a greeting to indicate whether one is well In Japanese, negative and past tense are all expressed by conjugation. We can conjugate a noun or adjective to either its negative or past tense to say that something is not [X] or that something was [X]. This may be a bit hard to grasp at first but none of these state-of-being conjugations make anything declarative like 「だ」 does. We’ll learn how to make these tenses declarative by attaching 「だ」 to the end of the sentence in a later lesson. First, for the negative, attach 「じゃない」 to the noun or na-adjective. Conjugation rules for the negative state-of-being Attach 「じゃない」 to the noun or na-adjective Example: 学生+じゃない=学生じゃない Examples 学生じゃない。 Is not student. 友達じゃない。 Is not friend. 元気じゃない。 Is not well. Conjugating to the past state-of-being Vocabulary 学生 【がく・せい】 – student 友達 【とも・だち】 – friend 元気 【げん・き】 – healthy; lively *Used as a greeting to indicate whether one is well We will now learn the past tense of the state-of-being. To say something was something, attach 「だった」 to the noun or na-adjective. In order to say the negative past (was not), conjugate the negative to the negative past tense by dropping the 「い」 from 「じゃない」 and adding 「かった」. Conjugation rules for the past state-of-being Past state-of-being: Attach 「だった」 to the noun or na-adjective Example: 友達+だった =友達だった Negative past state-of-being: Conjugate the noun or na-adjective to the negative first and then replace the 「い」 of 「じゃない」 with 「かった」 Example: 友達じゃない → 友達じゃなかった=友達じゃなかった Examples 学生だった。 Was student. 友達じゃなかった。 Was not friend. 元気じゃなかった。 Was not well.

Great so far, thank you for taking the time to create this deck.

However I have noticed a few little errors, mostly minor typos. For the が particle card, I noticed the TaeKim section mistakenly has the section from the particle も.

I'm new to learning Japanese and your deck is the best one I could find for leaning basic grammar!

I have one question though. In the dictionary tab, what does KS mean? The reference material often cites KSA and KSB but I just don't know what they mean.
Comment from author
Thank you. I'm glad it helps.

KS means Key Sentence. So KSA and KSB are Key Sentences A and B respectively. The a, b, c... are more examples.
