Description

Updated: 29th May 2016. Deck to learn Spanish with pictures and sound. Ordered by frequency with cards being both forward and reverse. Will be updated periodically. The accent of the sound is either General European Spanish or General American Spanish. It can not be guaranteed that the pictures conform to all preferences for modesty. Some abbreviations for the word types: nf: noun femninine nm: noun masculine nc: noun common, like el estudiante/la estudiante nm/f: can take either masculine or feminine form, like doctor/doctora nmf: when two words are alike but have different genders, like; el cura (the priest) la cura (the cure) nf el: feminine noun but when the singular article is next to the word the article is masculine, like; el aqua contaminada Please rate this deck in AnkiWeb if you like it. Have any suggestions or corrections? Email me at i2_soporta@mail.com Comment about the pictures 27th June 2016 Thanks for the comments and reviews. The images are selected automatically from search and then reviewed later, so sometimes the pictures may not correspond with the Spanish word (but perhaps still memorable). One thing to do is re-downloading the latest version of the deck, it should give you some new images with the progress intact. Comment about not downloading: I have not heard of this issue before, might be a problem on your device. Note this is a very large deck. Please don't give reviews based on technical problems with Anki or device.

This deck has several cards with images of rape. The word provocar (v) has a macro with the text "To rape someone is my dream." The image for "obligar (v)" is also suggestive of rape. This is completely unacceptable and disgusting.

Carte fatte molto bene, grazie
on 1590790702
It has helped me a lot. However, I found that it made more sense when I removed English to Spanish cards, and only kept Spanish to English cards. Overall, it is very helpful, but of course, this alone will not make you fluent. It needs to go along with other ways to study, mainly for grammatical purposes.
on 1590535033
Nice work!
on 1590301626
I would give 3 out of 4 stars, not a thumbs down, if I could.

Negativ about this deck is that most of the participle words for example have been mistakenly recognized as nouns. So you are learning "conocer" AND "el conocido" pretty soon, but I'm sure conocer is much more frequent than conocideo. It's a bad example but sometimes the noun is probably not even in the top 5000 whereas the verb should be in the top 20. Basically there's a lot of stuff that one should suspend while learning. Not a great deal but something that's a bit annoying.

There are many nsfw pictures, some words are almost exactly the same, e.g. there are two cards for "pesar" (1 verb, 1 noun). I personally deleted En→Es cards and only use Es→En. "Ave" is feminine, it just takes the masculine article in singular. I delete the words I already know and suspend those that aren't relevant for me (let's say economy since it's not my field) to put them aside and come back to them later.

This deck helped me a lot, but those nsfw pictures are quite a huge disadvantage.

Using this as a refresher of my school Spanish in parallel to a course.

Although I find some of the pictures a little weird, they really help with memorizing the words. (and noone's stopping you from replacing the spoky clown for example)

And the audio is very important as you probably want to speak the Spanish.

First day using this deck, good so far
on 1585344758
This is a really good deck to learn useful vocabulary quickly.
However, there's lots of redundency. So an advice is to suspend cards that are too obvious, so that you don't end up clicking through
500+ cards every day. For instance, suspending cards like "normal" or "normalmente" etc.

Using the same image for different words is not a great thing. It happens a lot over the deck, and it really pisses me off sometimes. Maybe just me, but that ruins the learning process for me a lil bit. Also, some images are just odd.

Would be a great deck if it was 1) made into more sub-decks - either two - one for Es-En pairs and the other for En-Es pairs. Having just one means I get two words of the same pair just one after each other (first Es-En then En-Es), and obviously, if I want to learn the most frequent words first, shuffling the deck does not make sense. Alternatively, it could be devided into six smaller decks: first 500 most frequent words, second 500, second thousand, third thousand, fourth and fifth thousand - and then the random order could be used so that I do not get the same pair during the same learning session (which would be much better for reviewing). This way, I would know that any given word even at the very beginning of my learning is not more advanced then is appropriate for my beginner's level.
2) Secondly, there is often a picture with further details on the tested Spanish word. If I am tested on Es-En pair, it is fine. The trouble begins when I am tested on En-Es pair. Then the picture gives me an answer well before I ask for it. The deck seems great at first sight but it is impractical after all.

Excellent file for learning Spanish (though technically only 2500 words because it's 2500 English to Spanish and then 2500 Spanish to English). Some complain that they cannot download the file.

Overall a good deck (my favorite for Spanish Vocab) with a couple gripes for the following cards. These can all be fixed on user end by swapping out the image for the card using the desktop anki client:

* Penetracion - very NSFW content. The image for "Penetracion" is pornographic, albiet tasteful, in nature. I am not offended, but I fear for potential tutors getting in trouble with parents if they recommend this deck.

* Seno - Semi NSFW, might raise an eyebrow from anyone shoulder surfing your study session.

* desnudo? - NSFW. Naked dude(only butt). Again not offended, personally, just worry for potential tutors getting in trouble/ people raising eyebrows if they glance at your screen.

* There may be a couple other semi nsfw image cards, but those were the big offenders.

* El Trato/contrato/tratado - All use the same image. I think there may even be a fourth and fifth similar word using the same image. This only exacerbates the problem with these easily confused words.

Great deck

I used it a long time agone to learn spanish. I think I finished it in 5 days, because I am a native speaker of cooler sounding spanish (brazilian portuguese). The images don't just make the study session more interesting: they help you absorb the meaning of the word. Help it sink into your brain.

When I finished this deck I studied the first 3000 cards of the deck called "Spanish 7000 Intermediate/Advanced Sentences" in a week I think, then I spent a month doing nothing but listening to the audiobooks of Harry Potter in spanish... After that I was pretty much 100% fluent in spanish.
---
Edit:
I made some improvements to the deck, hope the owner doesn't mind.
I decided to add articles(el... la...) to the individual words.
So If it was just "hombre", now it is "el hombre". If it was just "playa", now it is "la playa"... And so on.

I also added some simple example sentences to half of the words. The modified deck can be found here: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/2134488481

I tried everything but nothing would work. Extremely frustrated.
on 1506988800
Great basic deck!

This deck is a huge time-saver. It's a great way to speed through your starter vocab.

My only complaint is that I don't like the (nf) (conj) (whatever) tags in the vocab field. I wish they were in a separate field, so you could display them if you wanted or not by editing the card. For example:
Spanish: sin
Type: prep

Card: {{Spanish}} ({{Type}})
would display as: sin (prep)

But if I wanted, I could just use {{Spanish}} and get rid of the clutter.

I appreciate that the word ranking is in a field. Great for sorting quickly and making my own decisions with the deck. Just wish it could be a litttttle more customizable.
on 1506643200
Very well done

This is one hell of a job, very well done. The only thing is that the pictures sometimes not appear. Can I change this in the settings?
on 1504137600
Thanks for the deck!!

I've been using a previous version of this deck for months, thanks for the update. It's true the pics are not the best, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. If someone does not like the pics, they can change them. And that's a learning experience in itself. Think of the pics as a placeholder. The magic is the list

I mention anki and this deck to everyone I meet who is studying Spanish

Can not download

May be a great deck but I can not download it. I've been having some problems with a couple other deck's not downloading either, any ideas?
on 1497052800
Very practical if you understand English.

Although it was very boring, I cannot deny that this deck is practical enough to boost your vocabulary.
I tried 800 words to remember per day and I lost the equilibrium of mental.
I was angry of every new words in this deck, but it made me succeed reading articles in Spanish on timeline of Facebook without dictionary.
Believe me, this is the one you should start right now.

Many thanks!

Thank you so very much, this is incredibly useful! :-)

What a great resource

Thank you so much for creating this brilliant Deck.
I have been using it alongside online language apps Babbel and Duolingo & it has been invaluable.
Really good tags, so its simple to create a filtered deck to review when I have a bit of time to spare.
Highly recommended :0)

Great vocab builder

One of the other reviewers wished he had nabbed this list before making his own. I was fortunate to be lazy enough to grab this list when I first got Anki. I cranked up the number of new words per day by a lot. After months with this, I'm still not half-way through the list! This will keep you busy for a long time. My chief gripe is with some of the images. While the vast majority are good, and I know I can replace them with my own, some choices are just plain strange. "Ente" (entity) has drawing of a duck. "Siquiera" (even if) has a picture of several soccer players on a field. I'm not sure what a plate shop has to do with "bazar" (to base/found). Every few days I have a brief "wtf moment" with a new word and associated picture. Despite that, it's a good deck and no mistakes that I've noticed.

Followup - I notice the description now suggests downloading to update. I sort of understand why "ente" ("entity" in Spanish) shows a picture of a duck: "ente" is "duck" in German.
on 1470441600
Great!

It is really awesome! I haven't found any mistakes yet.

How I study:
After downloading and adding the deck, I suspended ALL of the cards. Now every time I find new words in the articles, songs, textbook or other learning materials, I de-suspend the word and learn it.

I sometimes add an example sentence or change the picture for more meaningful one.

(The reason I'm doing all this is that I don't see the point in memorizing long lists of words I didn't encounter elsewhere).
on 1466553600
Good frequency list. Start with this deck for your vocab.

I wish I would have started with this rather than building my own cards for the first 3800 words from "A Frequency Dictionary of Spanish" from scratch! I'm 200 words into it and so far the images are pretty much on point. The pronunciations are just OK but mostly sufficient. If you have any issues just edit the card and plug in your own image from a search engine or a different pronunciation from a site like Forvo.
