Why should you use the French Anki Decks?

  1. Practice French Grammar and Vocabulary

The French Anki Decks have a total of 14826 flashcards. These flashcards contain every single concept that you need to know! This means you have a tremendous amount of exercises. The best part is that the exercises will adapt to your performance, creating a personalized practice experience.

This gives you a tailor-made practice deck. You will be able to practice every single facet of French.

  1. Improve your French Comprehension and Pronunciation

All of the flashcards in the French Anki Decks have audio files. In the Grammar Anki Deck there is an audio file for every sentence. In the Vocabulary Anki Deck each word is accompanied by two audio files: one for the sentence it’s in and another for the word itself.

This means that you will know how the words and sentences are supposed to sound in French. This will greatly improve your French comprehension. Moreover, because you hear the audio, you also improve your own pronunciation.

Additionally, for further clarity, the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) is provided for all words and sentences in the Vocabulary Deck. This means that you can check pronunciation whenever needed.

  1. The best way to memorize French Grammar and Vocabulary

One of the biggest advantages of using the French Anki Decks, is that it is the PERFECT tool for memorizing what you have learned. No longer will you keep forgetting what you studied!

Why is it so important to use Anki?

anatomy 1751201 640 1

Have you ever studied for an exam and then forgotten everything a few days after the exam? It is a feeling that most of us experience.

In fact, according to Art Kohn Ph.D, a professor at Duke University, within 24 hours most of us forget an average of 70% of new information.

Often this would not be a problem. However, when it comes to language this can become a huge issue. Learning vocabulary and grammar to then forget them later on would be a disaster!

Anki prevents this from happening and ensures that you remember what you study. Let’s take a look at the 3 reasons why Anki is so effective.

  1. Active recall

Active recall means that Anki asks you a question and you have to remember the answer. This is more powerful than passive learning and improves your memory.

When you retrieve information from your brain, you strengthen your ability to retain information and create connections in your brain between different concepts.

  1. Spaced Repetition

Spaced repetition introduces new concepts in batches to you. A flashcard appears and if you know the answer the flashcard moves to the next batch. This batch will be shown to you at a later time. The more often you answer correctly the later the intervals become.

However, should you answer wrongly, the flashcard moves to the first batch again, and you will see it more often.

This system finds its origins in the spacing effect. The spacing effect illustrates how people learn better if reviews are spread out over time.

  1. Ease

Anki takes care of all your scheduling. There’s no need to calculate when you need to practice which cards. Furthermore, Anki is available on both iOS and Android users, so you can download it on your smartphone and use it wherever you are.

Card Structure of the French Anki Decks

All words in the French Anki Decks are used in sentences to help you learn them in context. The flashcards have an image, an audio file, an explanation, and an IPA notation.

The image allows you to create a better memory with the word/concept that you are studying. You are linking a concept with a certain image.

The audio file allows you to understand how something is pronounced in French. This will help you to improve your French comprehension.

The explanation is there so you always understand why something is conjugated in a certain way even if you have forgotten it. The explanation is only added in the Grammar Anki Deck to explain the grammatical concepts.

The IPA notation is so you can know exactly how something is pronounced and be able to repeat that pronunciation yourself. The IPA notation is only added in the Vocabulary Anki Deck so that you can learn exactly how to pronounce the words in French.

Here is an extract, so you can hear what the audio sounds like in the French Anki Decks. The IPA notation has been added too. There is also audio for the words and the plural versions of those words.

Here is an extract, so you can hear what the audio sounds like in the French Anki Decks.

J’ai acheté un nouveau vélo.

ʒe aʃəte œ̃ nuvo velo

La chaise est à côté de la table.

la ʃɛz ɛ ta kote də la tabl(ə)

There are 2 card types in the French Anki Decks.

  1. Conjugate/Fill in the blank

Here you see 2 images of a Flashcard in the Vocabulary Deck. On the front side, you will find a sentence in both French and English, with a picture underneath it.

In the French sentence, the words you need to know are missing and represented as underscores. The English sentence is a translation of the French sentence. In the English sentence, the words you need to know are bolded and underlined. You should determine what belongs in place of the underscores.

On the back side, you will see the French sentence, the IPA notation of the sentence, the English translation of the sentence, and an audio file of the French sentence.

You will also see just the French word, the IPA notation of the word, the English translation of the word, and an audio file of the French word.

This gives you the opportunity to see and hear the word in a sentence and just by itself.

Please note how “un vélo” is colour-coded in blue to indicate its masculine gender. All nouns are colour-coded as blue for masculine and pink for feminine. This will help you remember the gender of nouns more easily.

Here you see 2 images of a Flashcard in the Grammar Deck. As you can see it is very similar as the one before. However, flashcards in the Grammar Deck also contain an explanation of grammatical concepts on the back side. In this example, you can see on the back side an explanation of how avoir is conjugated and how to use it.

  1. Type the correct French word

This is the same as the first card, however in this one, you have to type the correct word on the front side. You will see if you were correct, or made any errors on the back side.

This helps improve your writing skills in French.

The Anki deck is a 5-star deck. This is the best method that I have used. Everything is there for French A1 and the exercises are great. The program knows exactly what you need to do and adapts based on how you progress. I wish I had this sooner. Also, Sam is available for any questions via email which I liked a lot. Go ahead and try it. It will help you a lot!
