1001 High Intermediate Spanish Words & Sentences

0.21MB. 0 audio & 1 images. Updated 2016-01-04.

Description

Updated: 4th January 2016. Level: High Intermediate (verbs in preterite, imperfect, future, conditional and imperative tense.) These are cards of words followed by a single card with an example sentence of the preceding word, eg. (Card # 19) Front: to end, to finish Back: acabar (Card # 20) Front: Our work never ends. Back: Nuestro trabajo nunca acaba. (Card # 21) Front: the action Back: la acción (Card # 22) Front: His actions confuse me. Back: Sus acciones me confunden. This is my favourite way to learn spanish - be introduced to the word with it’s general English translation, and then see the word in a sentence to learn one way it’s applied. In most cases, ‘you’ is the formal pronoun ‘usted’. Though there are no instances of ‘vosotros’, this deck is a mix of spanish from both Spain and Latin America. Text To Speech will pronounce correctly since the diacritical marks are there. You can view a poorly rendered text version of the deck here - http://www.vellosoft.com/dloads/Spanish_Vocabulary_Builder.pxt Please rate this deck in AnkiWeb if you like it. If you find any mistakes or have any improvements, please email me - stu40 at hotmail.com and I will update the deck. Thank you below for the comment about ‘no mp3’. I recommend IVONA TTS (Android) as a substitute for mp3 files - it’s a very natural sounding TTS engine. Thanks to Martin Patz, Nate Fillmore & Steve Brooks for their input. Thank you below for the comment about ‘invierno’ - that card now says ‘winter’. Thanks for the comment about ‘Suguiero’ - it’s now corrected, but that error was in the original book.

Fails at times to give necessary information
Posted on 2016-02-13

The deck is good, but at times the composer failed to clue the student as to the number of persons being addressed. Take, for example, the sentence "Will you allow me to go with you?": is the person asking to go with one or more persons? You don't know until you see the answer. This happens periodically, and is bothersome.

Also, words to learn sometimes have something like (Rioplatense) next to the word -- what the hek does Rioplatense mean? The Spanish dictionary I use didn't have it listed; only when I googled it did I find what it meant. This becomes cumbersome, and it should have been dealt with differently.

Otherwise, I am enjoying the deck, but for the issues noted above (and let's hope there are no more), I'm only giving it four stars.

Thanks

Thank you for this great deck and thank thank you for your other decks.
There is a mistake in "Sugiera que visiten algunas aldeas en las montañas."
It must be "Sugiero...". You will find sugiero even in the original book.

Great, but wish it wasn't in ABC order

Learning words in ABC order causes things to look and sound a little similar. It'd be much better if things were shuffled around. I'll have to find a way to shuffle everything in groups of two. It seems like it's not so cumulative that shuffling this way would be an issue.

Excellent

This is definitely one of the best Anki Decks that I have used and continue to use. It's great for reviewing and filling in the gaps of what you may already know. It's also excellent for building new knowledge and understanding of how the language is put together.
Yes there are some differences in Spanish spoken in the Americas and Spanish as spoken in Spain but whatever Spanish you have learned, you always will be understood. The key is to read, listen, learn and then speak it. So dig in to this deck and be amazed at how much and how quickly you will learn with daily practice.

Good deck but I found an error

One card lists "Pensamos pasar el invierno en el sur" for "We intend to spend the summer in the south", which is troubling as inverno=winter, so be careful to verify the cards if you use this deck.

Wonderful deck!

Although these are tough for beginners, this deck is a fabulous way to build knowledge quickly. I'm wishing I could find comparable decks for other languages - this is the best language learning deck I have found so far.
