To give you an example of a useless word. I have no idea who thought it would be a great idea for people to learn the Tibetan word for "awl" I didn't know what an awl was until I checked a dictionary, I have never used or seen this word or object my entire life. To investigate further the Tibetan was showed to a native speaker and he also didn't recognize this word. They include many stupid words like this but exclude essential words like the generic word for "tool" or a very fundamental word like "breakfast!". I deleted many, many cards from this deck, I suggest you do the same.
Also why the heck include transcribed English? We want to learn Tibetan not English! All the audio is there, therefore making the transcribed English doubly redundant, I'm still scratching my head about that one!
To be frank the accumulated time I've spent to double check the cards against my dictionary and then fixing it, could've been used to make my own deck. All in all better then nothing.
This deck includes native speaker audio and the phonetic transcriptions from the vocabulary of each lesson in Tournadre's book. Without this deck, it would be nearly impossible for me to divine how to pronounce the words in Tournadre. With this deck, I am actually learning Tibetan. I wish I could thank or donate to the person who was kind enough to make these recordings and share with us.
