Which are the most useful anki decks you know?

Recommended Posts

Recently, Baudelaire put up a very useful deck with +1600 sentences with audio in this forum. Data are from http://tatoeba.org, which collects sentences produced by native speakers. You can download this deck from anki ("Tatoeba chinese-english deck with audio and pinyin")

Another (smaller) deck with audio is available in http://forum.koohii.com/viewtopic.php?id=4405. It is based on the online course http://www.zhongwenred.com/, so sentences tend to be easier than those from Tatoeba

The deck "all FSI all NPCR", downloadable from anki, does not have audio, but contains all sentences from FSI and many sentences from NPCR 1 to 4.

Do you know any other useful decks with sentences and, preferably, with audio?

Hi,

I use "Mastering Chinese Characters XX", XX= 01 - 10, which has audio and is downloadable from Anki. For each character

at least one example sentence is provided, in addition to the character card.

Best

I use the 20,000+ sentences based on HSK vocab deck. It doesn't have audio, though, and contains a ton of duplicates that you'll want to remove. But working on HSK levels 3 and higher has been truly useful for me, because you get exposure both to new words and to a large variety of sentence structures and forms.

i like the "mastering chinese" decks, complete with audio.

but one thing i want to know. i don't like taking a giant deck and going through it. i prefer to get tons of sentences about the things i do know and gradually adding 1 thing at a time. so i normally just combine a bunch of decks and then search for certain words i want to learn or look through sentences to find one that doesn't have too much new stuff and transfer it over to another deck that i actually use. but is there any easy way to transfer individual cards to a new deck? right now, i have to copy/paste everything over.

I'm liking "Chinese Media: Lesson 1 (with audio and image)" downloadable from Anki

My personal one,

I get my sentences from two sources, ones I find, and ones I download.

If I find an interesting sentence on the internet, I add it, and have my Chinese friends record it for me.

I have also got a lot of useful sentances using this method http://www.spanish-only.com/2009/10/frenchpod-spanishpod-sentences-audio/

Since it's a legal gray area, I can't send you my deck directly, but the above method is still worth investigating.

Adding definitions from a Chinese Chinese dictionary is also well worth it.

the most useful anki deck is the one you make yourself with words and sentences that you know you'll use

I've used the HSK lists to study from, and it really helped develop my reading ability. There may be Anki files out there for them, but I just made my own from available lists. Currently, I'm going through the Tatoeba audio sentences. My listening ability is just awful, but this kind of listening practice really helps.

I never got the benefit of adding sentences (without audio from a native speaker) by hand for recognition study, even though it's what AJATT recommends. There is so much context that few sentences are hard to figure out, unless the grammar is what you're studying.
