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.
- the sentences lack context
- there are no references to explain the meaning of the sentences and which verbs are used in it (see an example below)
Maybe my intermediate German level is not enough to use this deck yet. Or the purpose of this method is learning everything by heart, which simply does not work for me.
Examples of problems:
Was habe ich an? = What do I have to do?
How "What (cloth) am I wearing"? became "What do I have to do?" ? I can not even find this expression on Google or in the expressions related to anhaben in dictionaries, eg https://www.wordreference.com/deen/anhaben . Maybe this sentence uses in fact "haben" ? No idea! And without knowing the correct verb, I cannot use this expressions in variations of the given sentence (eg in a "dass" sentence or conjugated in Perfekt).
Nicht an dir = Not to you
I don't know in which context this is used, but I am sure it is not used in all contexts where "not to you" is. Examples:
Whose this beer belongs to?
Not to you!
= Wem gehört dieses Bier?
I want to get married, just not to you.
= Ich will heiraten, nur nicht dich.
Without context, this is useless IMHO.
Was habe ich an? => what [do] I have to? => what [do] I have to do? [Germans omit words more often than Englishmen do; it's the German way of talking.]
Thank you for putting effort into explaining what is wrong ^^ what you said is true, but these cards are few in number.
I think somebody speaking English and Slovak/Czech/Polish... can afford this approach...
Thanks a lot!
I would love it but I found some problems.
After trying about 30 different cards, I have noticed mistakes and ambiguities. Some examples:
- This is my woman - Das ist mein Mädchen: Mädchen means girl. Should be Das ist mein Frau.
- Ask me if I care - Interessiert's mich: what means Interessiert's (with apostrophe)? This translation is simply wrong.
- Come over - Komm hierher: should be Come here.
There are easy to catch and fix semantic errors (meaning). There are syntax errors (which is very important in German). And there are others like using idioms on either side and a straight translation on the other.
This may seem not so big deal.
Yet, this has to be verified and corrected or else people will learn wrong patterns - time wasted twice, on learning and fixing.
I really admire your work.
correct translation — because Mädchen can be an affectionate term for "woman", just like "girl" is in the English language; check the sentence 'Ja, sie ist mein Mädchen.' here https://context.reverso.net/translation/english-german/that's+my+woman
>>> Ask me if I care? - Interessiert es mich?
correct. it's an idiomatic translation, check https://context.reverso.net/translation/german-english/interessiert+es+mich
>>>Come over - Komm hierher
correct. check https://context.reverso.net/translation/german-english/komm+hierher
HOWEVER, it is true that some English translations are more loose than they should be, but I came with a way to fix this problem, and I intend to update this deck with better English translations. (Hopefully this month.)
Edit: Done. I updated this deck and now it has better English translations.
However, I came up with a way to remove those clicks and hisses from the audio (regardless of what earphone is used). And I plan to update the deck soon, with the improved audio.
Waiting for the other parts!
Hi i love it! where can i find parts 2 and 3?
