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 deck is well-organised. I have one issue with the deck: in general, it's advisable to memorise nouns with their gender together. For example, with the noun "loi" (law), the prompt should not be "loi", it should be "la loi", using the article so that the learning the gender is inseparable from that of the noun itself. While there is a field that indicates the gender, the article should be included with the noun in the prompt.
This is the best deck I've found on Ankiweb so far. Detailed cards, well formatted, sample sentence, IPA, high quality audio. Thank you!
I have over 1000 hours in Anki and wanted to learn French. After much searching, this is by far the best deck for both beginner and advanced learners. Being able to replay the native-pronunciation for each word is extremely helpful to me, as well as the pronunciation letters attached. Grammar and phrases are learned subconsciously through the example sentences. I also appreciate that the words are introduced in frequency order; not all decks do this.
Good audio of the words and sentences, and the sentences are really engaging--you often sense there's a story behind them ("I am sure she is alive."), so they engage you and hold your interest. A lot of care went into this deck. I'm using it with a very low "new card" rate, just to tickle my brain with a little French every day while I focus on another language. I'm so glad to have it.
This is the one of the sole reasons I have improved my french reading and listening dramatically, I'd say it improved it at least 15-20%. THANK YOU
The vocabulary is very useful, however there is a problem with the flipping function.
If you try to flip the cards back to front the function will not work. So you are sticked to learn the words in one direction only, French to English. I think the problem is with the code. It is a pity because otherwise it is an outstanding deck.
But that function is very important to learn words, in reverse mode, from English to French.
Hope it is soon fixed.
Shouldn't I be able to see the text in French? The only thing I get is the sound.
I think this deck effectively replaces my semi-original one, so I ended up removing it. Very happy to see that there's finally a deck with decent audio - listening is such a vital skill and just no fun with bad audio samples.
This deck is EXACTLY what I need to expand my vocabulary, listening skill, and grammatical understanding of French. Neri Rook, I truly appreciate you responding to my personal request to make this upgraded version of the formerly available deck. Now, we have the frequency list plus quality audio for example sentences.
I've been studying this for 8 days now (~20 min per day), and my French has already improved dramatically. Put in a little effort here, and you'll see big improvements in your French!
Here's Why this Updated Deck Is a Big Deal to Me, Personally:
I've been a fan of frequency lists for a long time. Unfortunately, it has been hard to find a combination of a good frequency list, strong sample sentences, and quality audio for both the words alone and the sample sentences as well. I went as far as to pay native speakers to record voice overs for sample sentences when studying German. I wasn't really wanting to repeat that task for French. This deck has solved my problem! :)
