I don't really want to give this a "thumbs down", more really a request for convenient use. Obviously a lot of work has gone into creating this deck and I thank you for sharing it. However there is a problem in that the deck is too large to synchronise. Is it possible to split the deck into a first and second parts? Or is there a way for me to divide it up myself. I cannot find any help in the app to allow me to do this
Comment from author
Click the deck on Anki's "homepage" (the list of decks).

Click the "Spanish to English" subdeck. Click Browse.

Go to card number 5000.
Delete everything from 5000 to 10000. (Select those cards by pressing the Shift button)

Do the same for the "English to Spanish" subdeck.
That will free up a lot of space.
The cards with "advanced-level words" will be deleted, but you can study them later.

Baralho ótimo e organizado. Obrigado pelo esforço, tempo e contribuição para a comunidade do Anki.

Tenho algumas sugestões e considerações.

- Em minha opinião, colocar as entradas do Wikicionário torna o baralho MUITO pesado, de modo que sobrecarrega computadores mais antigos. Só para situar, apenas para adicionar o baralho levou quase trinta minutos. Entendo a motivação (poder usar offline), mas penso que são poucas pessoas que estudam no Anki sem Internet. Um botão que leva para a entrada do Wikicionário tornaria o baralho mais leve e, quem se interessar, vai utilizá-lo.

- Visto que há outro baralho (Spanish Sentences, p1, p2, p3) como ponto de partida para estudar as palavras de alta frequência em contexto, seria interessante remover o sub-baralho das palavras mais usadas, transformando o foco desse baralho no estudo da conjugação de verbos (ou outros assuntos relacionados a gramática do espanhol).

- Respeitando a 4.ª lei do SuperMemo, a lei da mínima informação, seria interessante, se possível, que cada conjugação tivesse um cartão próprio, de modo que pudéssemos nos concentramos somente em uma conjugação ao invés de todos os pronomes ao mesmo tempo. No entanto, penso que realizar isso seria trabalhoso.

- Separar o baralho em sub-baralhos. Por exemplo, Indicativo (presente, passado, futuro), etc.

Essas são apenas algumas sugestões. No mais, aprecio seu esforço e esse baralho está muito bom. Obrigado.

Levarei em conta suas sugestões quando eu atualizar o deck. Não sei definitivamente o que farei (pois há muitas opções pra reduzir o tamanho do deck sem sacrificar qualidade) . . . mas uma coisa que certamente farei na próxima atualização, é dividir o deck em duas ou três partes, para reduzir o tamanho do arquivo.

excelente información, material de estudio

I love how most of the words include example sentences, it helps to increase exposure to the language which is very useful for a beginner like myself

Thank you for the images.

So far so good, thank you for all of your hard work putting this together!

I'm putting this here to give further instructions (for those who barely know how to use Anki--like me!) on how to also create English > Spanish cards IN ADDITION TO the Spanish > English cards without just reversing the whole deck, as well as how to make sure the audio only plays on the Spanish side.

1. Click on your deck
2. Click Browse (you should see one card pop up from the desired deck.)
3. Click the button that says "Cards..."
4. At the very top of this new pop-up window, there is a drop-down menu labeled "Card Type:" Directly to the right of this drop-down menu, click the "Options" button, then "Add card type"
5. Now, on the left side of this same pop-up window, this half is labeled "Template". You will see some code. Click on the radio button for "Front Template", then in the code look for {{Spanish word with article}}, copy "Spanish word with article", remove it, and write "English". Now it should look like {{English}}.
6. Now, click on the radio button for "Back template". In the code, look for where it says "English" and replace with "Spanish word with article". It should look like {{Spanish word with article}}.
7. Next, you have to move the audio to the back template. Go to the "Front Template" and look in the code for this:

<div style="display:none;" Consolas; font-size: 12px;'>{{Audio}}</div>

Highlight this piece, copy, and delete it.

8. Click on "Back Template" and paste this code at the bottom of the code that's there.

Altogether, you will now have 10,000 cards--5,000 Spanish > English and 5,000 English > Spanish, and the Spanish audio will only play on the Spanish side :) Hope that helps!

****O (4 out of 5 stars)

I'd give this 4 stars out of five. Really like having top 5000 words for movies, because I want to be able to watch movies in Spanish. I take away one star because the example sentences do not always have the correct usage of the word. Take for example the entry for "bajo". It's listed twice, appropriately. Once as "short, low" (adjective) an again as "under, underneath" (preposition). But both entries have the following sentences for usage:

Él estuvo tres minutos bajo el agua. He was underwater for three minutes.
El perro estaba en la caja bajo la mesa. The dog was in the box under the table.

This example is easy to think through. But there a others that are difficult especially with verbs, where a noun is presented, but then the sentence usage is as a verb:


(nm) 165
said, proverb (nm)

El profesor no pudo haber dicho algo así. The teacher can't have said such a thing.
Aún no me has dicho por qué estás aquí. You still haven't told me why you're here.
No lo he dicho. I didn't say it.

In that card, the word is a noun, but the sentences use it as a verb.

Overall, I get it. The deck was created in an automated way, the sentence contains the exact word, and there's probably heavy coding needed to find sentences with the correct usage. Overall, I still like and use the deck. Just FYI if perfect sentence usage is important to you.

Hello I want to say thank you for doing al the hard work. I wanted to done it all by myself but then it would be so easy to learn and with a lot of mistakes. You take use all a big stone from the Shoulders. You are a great guy.

One question I have, I want to start at the beginning and not at 100, so how can I change it so the Deck will start at the beginning?

Best regards

Stinks that I have to choose between like and dislike. Obviously a lot of work went into making this deck. Thanks OP!

The only gripe I have is that the example sentences seem procedurally generated, rather than organic. This means that many of the sentences don't actually use the word form from the card.

For example.
"La Crítica" is a noun, but is used as an adjective in the example sentence "Las tres víctimas de disparo están en condición crítica."

This could be very confusing for new learners, who can't identify those things, and ultimately detrimental to their learning of proper Spanish.
This has happened with 3 out of the 1st 10 cards I studied, so it's not an isolated issue.

This would be a fantastic deck if that issue were solved.
on 1581526536
Good set. The example sentences are really, really helpful.
The tags are unfortunately not properly applied, they are in the custom field tag instead of the official field Tags. It's not that easy to fix, so if you would allow it I will upload one with fixed tags and will also include the reversed cards.

Huge thanks to the author for putting a lot of effort into making this deck!

I studied this deck in its completeness over about 9 months. As others have pointed out there are small errors, and sometimes better translations can be given (especially to find appropriate cognates), but this deck provides a very good base from which one can launch one's Spanish learning journey. Using this deck and other techniques such as cloze exercises, and consumption of simple native content and learning content such as Dreaming Spanish, I became a good enough level to consume native content without the aid of dictionaries or further vocab study.
on 1556124182
There are a ton of errors in the decks. The example sentences are frequently for different vocab than the word. For example there is a card for oído ("hearing/ear") but the examples are all sentences using a form of oír, which is related but not the same word.

I looked at about 30 cards and noticed a high error rate. They're not a big deal and are easily spotted, but there are tons of errors throughout the deck. For example, the audio doesn't match the text ("El tío Tom" vs "El tío de Tom"). Or the English version is actually just an unrelated Spanish phrase, as in the text for "le ignoré". Another mistake is common and slightly more subtle: verb/noun confusion. E.g. the card for "el estado" has example sentences that use estado as a verb, not a noun, and it's a completely different word. These sentences should be discarded.

Other issues I have with the notes:

* "la espera" is translated as "wait". This is obviously incorrect.

* Translating "blocquear" as "to lock" a door is an odd construction to me. What country uses it that way?

* The picture for 'tanto' is a bunch of tanto swords, which isn't what the words mean at all. It's like this deck was assembled by a robot, which is kind of neat.

If somebody had the time to go through this one, note by note, and remove all the mistakes, it could be a really good beginner deck. As it stands, though, it probably shouldn't be used by beginners and the vocab might be too basic for intermediate students.
Comment from author
As a native speaker of Portuguese (a language 95% equal to Spanish), who studied all the cards in the deck... I think you are greatly exaggerating the flaws, the error rate is very low... what makes you think “La Espera“ does not translate to "the wait"? It is correct. And where did you even find the word "bloquear"? It does not mean "to lock a door", but this verb is not found anywhere in the deck.

I barely found errors in this deck, and I say that as someone whose native language is Spanish with a thick accent (Portuguese).

But! thanks for being polite in your review; some of what you say is true(like when you say the example sentences need improvement, that is definitely true)... and I intend to fix those things in a future update.

I can make something much better, with better example sentences, better images, etc. Check this deck on July.
on 1555536395
I think the deck is great, alot of time, effort and care was put into this. Thank you.
The only thing I would amend is that the audio plays too quickly. When you put the English on the front of the card, the audio tells you the answer before you get a chance to think of it.

But it's no big deal. Apart from that, great deck!
on 1546722796
Very well done. I appreciate that you care about feedback and act accordingly to what has been said in the comments.
Looking forward to adjust the deck to my needs (separate cards for meaning and pronounce) and begin boosting my competence in spanish right away.
Also loved to discover language creation process on the anthropological side as described in a post on your blog.

I switched to this deck because it only has Spanish to English cards. The examples are a real plus.

Very nice. Thanks, just wish had audio for english side
on 1535388092
This is an absolutely awesome deck, but I think I'm seeing cards in the wrong order. I have 'Show new cards in order added' option selected but the first card I see is for 'mismo' which has rank 102 whereas I should be seeing a one for 'de' which has rank 1.

EDIT: Apparently, what I needed was to select all notes in the card browser and click 'Reschedule'.
on 1523577600
Good deck but I cannot add English to Spanish cards. I tried to follow instructions, but got "{unknown field English}" and "{unknown field Spanish word with article}" so cannot make the conversion to other direction.
on 1523404800
After I followed the instruction to create ESP to EN cards they are not showing up in the review. I only get the EN to ESP ones. It would be good if both ways show up more or less at the same time.
How can I do it?

Not bad deck evolution compared to the previously one, although sentence examples are pretty bad and picture dont match! Thanks for the effort
on 1521417600
Overall pretty good deck but there is definitely some minor errors in the sentences that appear once in a while and some of the translations are alittle incorrect (probably was what that comment was complaining about).
I can't list all of them because I haven't gone through all the cards (there is quite a lot) but I can show you some that I spotted and want you to aware of:

"Creo que voy a tener un buen día" I think that translate to "I think that I'm going to have a nice day." opposed to "It's going to be a nice day."
La verdad es que ahora mismo no quiero comer nada which I think it translates The truth is that right now I don't want to eat anything

"El profesor no pudo haber dicho algo así" You said "can't" when it should have been couldn't

There is definitely more but I don't have time to look over 5000 words

Another thing is the difference between pudo and puede. Puede means can't and pudo means couldn't it seems to be a common mistake for you
I think a lot of decks made translate it indirectly on purpose so it can be understood from an English perceptive but I personally I think I would learn more if I understand what each individual word in the sentence means.

I'm not sure if I'm right but I learned most of my Spanish from http://www.spanishdict.com/ they have a lot of example sentences that you can use
I probably learned it from a more of an English perceptive but that's just what I noticed

Nice to have so much work already done. Yet I found too many errors in the beginning and I can't risk learning the wrong meanings. Some pics seem to suit a male who watches action movies which feel a little offensive.
on 1515542400
Only Spanish to English cards. Not that useful for learning vocab.
on 1484784000
Very Nice

Great deck! I am a beginner and this is just what I needed. Thanks so much, I appreciate the work you put into this.
on 1478995200
Pretty nice deck for spanish vocabulary

I just started learning with this deck recently and as far as I can tell it is pretty cool!

A big plus is that audio is included, which also has an impact on how you memorize new words.
on 1471564800
Nice, but could be improved

Nice deck, very comprehensive. However only usefull if you need to improve listening. If the deck was transformed to 4 sided cards. (Spanish Word > Picture > Prenunciation > English Translation) it would be perfect.
