Here is what I do: I take the expansion sentences, because they tend to be shorter and thus more workable for flashcard testing, also you can ave three sentences for each word. I choose useful vocab, record my own audio of the English translation, then download the Chinese audio and insert it as the backside, along with Hanzi and Pinyin. Review is: I prompt myself with my own English audio and then try for say the phrase in Chinese.
- This is the most awesome way of drilling active vocab use, grammar, sentence structure
- As it is fully audio based, I can do it while walking and while driving my car to work
- A lot of work
- Who doesn’t hate to hear his own voice on a record?
I have raised the subject of providing anki flashcards based on the expansion audio here in the forum multiple times, but so far Chinesepod does not seem to like the idea… So, anyone interested in working with audio flashcards will probably need to create them own his/her own.
I can only recommend it. Have been doing it for a few months after ten years of studying Chinese and for me personnally, this has been a total game changer.
