Genki 1 & 2, Incl Genki 1 Supplementary Vocab

0.17MB. 0 audio & 0 images. Updated 2012-08-25.
The author has shared 3 other item(s).


This deck is based on the Genki 1 & 2 textbook series by The Japan Times. (You should find each card's reading field enhanced to allow usage of the furigana hover/tooltip option.) It incorporates all of the vocabulary sections of both textbook's chapters. But, it also includes all the supplementary vocabulary from Genki 1. This includes fairly critical vocabulary, such as days of the month, the months, family member terms, etc, that are termed "supplementary" by the Genki textbook series. These are normally not found in any of the Genki vocabulary lists on the internet. (http://www.nwlink.com/~ayers/genki/)

I was impressed by this deck at first, but I recommend others look for another deck.

If you use this deck, be prepared to check each and every word, I found a lot of words using the wrong meaning for the kanji (e.g. この間、 開く just to name a few). This deck also seems to be for Genki 1st Edition, so be prepared to add the words that are missing. Be aware that none of the YomiKakiKen words have been added from either book, so you'll want to add those. The only tags used in this deck are to show the chapter. That means there are no tags for the type of word it is, especially for your verbs ending in ru. Aside from a single note, there is nothing to show if it is godan (u verbs) or ichidan (ru verbs).

Since Kanji works as a natural nemonic, it with help you remember your words, especially when you start learning rendaku (compounds). Every learner of Japanese will tell you to learn Kanji asap, and I'll say the same. The cards in the deck are decent, just change the Recognition front-cover to show "kanji:Reading" (furigana:Reading for those who want both), to get rid of the kana-only readings. 😒

Awesome! It covers unfortunately the old version of Genki 1 & 2 but I guess 98% of the voc is still the same! Not a big deal to add the few new words by oneself. Thanks for the creator!!

The deck seems ok, but it could have used a little bit more info on the order number of the cards, and which chapter it's from (not just in the tags). Also a more spiffy layout would have also been nice. This deck could be made to be good with a few tweaks, so I don't understand how it's been this way this long. It's like the author doesn't care.

this is only a good deck if you use the advice from the guy in 4/10/2018

dont listen to the ranting idiot from 11/21/2018 too, he's just fueling this for himself

Pretentious kids rating down this deck need to learn how to learn vocabulary. Study Hiragana first then how to write it in Kanji. Which is exactly how this deck is formated. This deck is a great start but by no means an end.

Of course this deck is popular, since it came from the famous Genki book, but that doesn't mean this deck is all hype. After finishing this deck a few weeks ago, I can say this deck is pretty much essential for learning basic vocabulary. There are still a ton of words you won't know, and I realized this fact after going through the Japanese Core 2000 deck from the iKnow website, but it's definitely worth it.

There are a few people here complaining about the fact that it doesn't show the Kanji first but instead shows the Hiragana but these people are just pretentious. There is no reason you should need to do this deck with furigana since these words are super basic and you'll pick up on the Kanji just by reviewing these and studying grammar.

I recommond studying the same way a Japanese child would study. (Yes I know that the internet looks down on effective study techniques but it must be said.) Learn what the word is first by being able to recognize and recall it in Hiragana and THEN learn the Kanji for the word. Only an amateur Japanese learner, or someone who's never studied a foreign language before will try to learn definitions by learning a new word through the Kanji.

Once you've finished the deck, like I've done, then you can edit the deck yourself and make it Kanji only. This is what I've done and have actually found that I can recognize almost every card. The only trouble I have is actually writing them or "recall"ing the Kanji. But I know all the people rating down this deck don't even know how to write a Kanji like 地, much less with the correct stroke order--and even less, know the readings for this Kanji, yet they complain that this isn't in Kanji-only.

Use the tips from the guy who posted on 10/04/2018 and it will work well.

I personally used the same Front/ Back cards for Recall as I did for New Cards as I like to see the Japanese when recalling, but do as you please!

Good deck!

Does not include all of the supplementary vocab, such as words located in the Reading and Writing sections. Tags are poorly set up. Cards also lack helpful grammatical and context info (simply E-J translations and nothing more).
This deck will get you started and using it is faster than entering the data myself, but I (and likely others) have to edit every single card to make this more useful than users who are just using it to pass a test.

I passed N5 and N4 with this deck.

Which sorta speaks for itself, innit?

Here is a fix to the furigana issue.

This will hide the furigana until you hover over it with your cursor and also add both furigana/kanji to the back of the cards.

First you need to add the following to the styling section:

ruby rt { visibility: hidden; }

ruby:hover rt { visibility: visible; }

Then, on the Recognition card change the front to:

<span style="font-size: 50px;">{{furigana:Reading}}</span>

and the back to:


<hr id=answer>
<span style="font-size: 30px;">{{kana:Reading}}</span>
<span style="font-size: 30px; ">{{Meaning}}</span>

Then, on the Recall card change the front to:

<span style="font-size: 30px; ">{{Meaning}}</span>

and the back to:


<hr id=answer>
<span style="font-size: 30px;">{{kana:Reading}}</span>
<span style="font-size: 50px;">{{furigana:Reading}}</span>

All in all a very useful deck, especially because it also includes all the supplementary vocabulary.
However, the way the Cards work is weird. Instead of reading the Kanji and remembering how to pronounce them in a given word, you get the pronunciation in hiragana, which makes no sense IMO.
I recommend you do the following:
Mark all the cards in Card Browser, go to edit->change note type, choose the same type they already are (Japanese), but change the write card to recall. That way you will now have to recognize the kanji and come up with the pronunciation and not the other way round.

excellent starter deck

this is my first month using Genki book 1.
just learned hiragana and katakana and finished first chapter.
This deck has been a great tool. I also have system cards because I am old fashioned! but using this has been fantastic!
well done.

Fantastic Deck

A complete vocabulary source for working through Genki - I'd recommend filtering the deck using the "Custom Study by tags" option, and then use just the cards for the specific chapter you're working on. Great way to grind vocab into your head!

Awesome Deck

I'm getting Genki 1 in a couple of days, and I think this deck has already helped me with the amount of vocab it has inside of it.
There was one thing about the deck that I didn't like, though. Near the end of it, there are the terms for counting things listed: 1-10 and a word that asks how many. (~本, ~台, ~冊, ~匹) These types of cards were a bit bothersome because it listed all the numbers on one card with the suffix tacked onto each one. Since the pronunciation of the numbers varied depending on the suffix, it was hard to remember all of them for just one card. Besides that, this deck is great.

No differentation between -ru and -u verbs

I like the deck. Thanks for creating it!
However, it would be even better if two features would be added:
- Identification whether its -ru or -u verbs
- Added particles like "wo", "ni"

This deck is for 1st Edition Genki

Great deck, just as you would want it to memorize the vocab and grammar.
One thing to mention though. This is not for the 2nd revised edition of Genki. I noticed some the word of the words being different in each edition like せんもん and せんこう which both basically means Major. But are different words and changed in later additons. This will kinda make you confused while trying to study 2nd edition.

Ignore the other review

not good

sorry but this is not how you should learn vocab. It shows the the word in hiragana not in Kanji like it should.
