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.
Here's some suggestions:
In the basic cards, among the first 200, there's a few vocab that's not very relevant, like "I'm starving", or "he has retired".
And the deck present about 4 times of saying the same thing with different words.
For me, they tended to be hard to remember because of lack of context ans... not very relevant and excessive.
Also, there are some words that sound very similar and have little connection to each other. To wait, and to ask for. To be married and to be hungry. And on top of that you present 2-4 ways to say the same thing ("I'm hungry", "I'm starving", "I'm dying of hunger", etc).
I can see why you may have thought why this would be helpful and it was a great experiment. Turns out this is confusing for me and I'm quite frustrated with the deck at the moment. I've just seen that "Ég er kvaentur" card so many damn time, while I'm flying by with other decks.
You present stuff like "Ég er stödd" and "Ég er staddur" as having the same translation to English. Please clarify why they are different (I suppose it's a gender thing?).
Too many similar words for different things, and too many different words for the aame things. Confusing, right?
So I'd suggest including only 100 or 500 most used words or phrases in the first 100 or 500 first flahscards, or at least give some clues.
Also, make sure that in the beginning one concept has only word. If you're talking about different genders, please make it explicit in the translation. Please don't use expression like "I'm dying of hunger" for "I'm hungry". Use "I'm hungry" (or "I have hunger", or whatever it is) for "I'm hungry".
Cheers my friend, you've done a huge and good work.
I wish it had audio recorded by a native speaker (as opposed to synthesized audio), though.
Struggled with Icelandic for a long time. This is probably among THE most useful collections of sentence in any language out there! Great job!
