After the file is downloaded, double-click on it to open it in the desktop program.
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.
I'd really like to have these tagged by grammar level, A1, A2, B1, ...
It seems like some are but some aren't. That would let me separate it into subdecks by level. (That lets me study randomly at that level, to get more variety instead of 15 cards on 'ye' all at once, but without facing the hardest grammar patterns up front.)
Also, I personally don't like exposing my beginner mind to a bunch of invalid sentences, because the mind is trying to pattern match on what it's seen before, so that seems a little dangerous. But I just suspended the valid/invalid cards and that works fine for me.
Would love to see / contribute to the code you're using to scrape the site and build the deck. Is it on github?
Something that would help even more is if these could be converted into cloze cards using the highlights in the examples on the website (example of highlighting:https://resources.allsetlearning.com/chinese/grammar/ASGD4EC8). The existing translation cards could be kept, or the cards could be rewritten to use a cloze around the English translation.
So far, I saw one wrong card, the chinese area had been filled with the english instead, but apart from that one experience, it's perfect!
links to the website make it easy to brush up on any particular point you find challenging
Vocabulary is simple to keep the grammar studying unhindered! (website)
The whole website distilled down to it's most potent form! (deck)
Recommended for everyone as a SUPPLEMENTARY study tool! (deck and website)
Downside is: lack of audio (deck and website) so it can't be a primary study tool.
A lot of the B1 notes are missing the pinyin, but I don't care as I'm more focused on the grammar and I already know the Chinese characters by the time I reach this point in the deck.
A lot of B2 sentences don't have a translation at all or have typos and a lot of issues. Some links no longer exist because the pages have changed or merged. The examples can't be found in the context of the wiki pages which was the strong point of this deck
In summary,this deck is great up until B1, but any examples at the upper intermediate levels and later are likely going to be corrupted. It's better that you start your own deck once you get at an advanced level and ask plenty of Chinese people about certain meanings.
Ignore the haters.
You have put in a huge amount of time and effort and have benefit all of us.
I think that Baidu has a grammar section which is good for learning Chinese grammar... but it's ZHN-ZHN, so mostly geared advanced Chinese users, but perfect for B1+ no? What do you say, to start a deck based on that? (I've been wanting to do it since forever but I'm still pretty poor in Chinese so this one is for me, hehe...)
And to the person who gave a bad review: Are you kidding me? Its such a huge deck and so much work and the only thing you do is, complain about it. "no audio". Then add the audio by yourself and provide it for everyone, instead of complaining about these little things!
