This Improvement

I am almost finished with Core 6000, 280 cards left, and I am done with this one. The way I was reviewing is a little different from what you might expect. I had the word in Kana on the front, and Kanji, the translations along with the sentences on the back, but without audio. This comes down to having reviewed more than 5000 cards so far. I can now say that it is logic, but what this did was rather unexpected. Kana represent Mora, and when I listen to something, this is all my brain gets to work with. Instead of reviewing Kanji to Kana and sentences plus audio, and instead reviewing the other way around but without audio, my listening comprehension sky-rocketed! No joke.

Reading and Maintaining

After having had a rather bad day yesterady, and still feeling tired today, I decided to maintain, read a little bit, and relax. When I got up, I had 280 cards due for review, which was dealt with pretty quickly. I took my time for it, so it took almost an hour minutes. Lately I get most of my cards out the way when I get up, in less than an hour and 20 minutes, which equals 435 cards. I do this in 2 minute sessions, some consecutive when adding new cards, to get most cards out of the way to have some time until another bunch of cards become due. Sometimes I spread out the sessions over the course of a day, but no session is longer than 2 minutes.

SRS Decks

Hello dear Reader, and welcome back. Today I will write about the layout of my new Anki decks. The creation of these decks involved some heavy thinking. In a brainstorming session I asked myself the following questions. "What goes together, and what doesn't", "How should the structure look like", "What do I want to have in one deck", "What kind of information is really needed", "What is the aim of the deck", "How can i combine information and add it to one deck, instead of several different decks, with several different strutures."
