Chinese Prestudy

10.83MB. Updated 2018-09-28. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.

This item is large, and may take some time to download.


This tool allows you to generate flashcards from words in a Chinese text (e.g. a book, a newspaper article, or a .srt subtitles file from a movie). This way, you can study the words from the text in advance, and then read the text already knowing most of the vocabulary. This tool works best for advanced Chinese learners who are reading either real adult-level Chinese texts, advanced graded readers, young adult literature, or similar. It may also work for learners at a lower level, but make sure you reduce the target vocabulary size to something manageable, otherwise you'll get too many flashcards and will spend all your time studying flashcards and not reading. This tool helps you hone your reading ability and increase your vocabulary size; you'll need to combine it with other approaches in order to improve your listening, speaking, grammar, etc. It only supports simplified characters right now, but I'm hoping to add traditional character support when I have time.
