On my very back burner is Chinese, which I studied decades ago. But being the Anki obsessive that I am, I have been slowly preparing a deck to use when I resume studying Mandarin in a couple years. I want a deck with both traditional and simplified forms, and some vocabulary terms in Simplified form. Attached to this post (hopefully), is the first part of that deck, comprising the first 1000 characters in frequency order. It is subdivided into groups of 100 and then groups of 10. I would welcome comments and corrections, and possibly some additions in the form of tags for various courses (i.e. NPCR_vol1_ch1 etc.). For frequency, I am using Jun Da's Modern Chinese Character Frequency List, which contains 10K characters in frequency order. You can get further information on his website regarding its sources and creation. My method to create this deck: 1) I started with an Anki deck entitled "Top 3000 Chinese Characters", which was created (I think) from The most common Chinese characters in order of frequency. But I started this some time ago and only recently began working on it again, so I am unsure of the origin of that Anki deck. I used this deck just so as not to have to enter 100% of the content by hand. 2) When I work on it, I open in different browser tabs, the frequency list above, the most common (3000) character list above, wiktionary main page, and the nciku English-Chinese dictionary. 3) Then starting where I left off, I copy/paste the next character from the frequency list into my Anki browser and find the entry in the 3000 list. I add the frequency number in a field, then search wiktionary and the most common character page (via cntrl-F). I then use the latter to add a traditional form if it exists, move the English definition into its own field, and add vocabulary items containing that character from either the most common list (need to keep using search to find entries under other characters if any) and wiktionary (where such actually have its own entry instead of just a stub). Sometimes the most common page does not contain the pinyin for an entry, which I then look up in the nciku dictionary. I don't use the latter much for definitions since they seem all over the place. After that, I move the English definitions of the vocabulary entries into its own combined field, and finally use the change deck function of Anki to move the character into already prepared sub-deck it belongs to. The above process for each character can take only 30 seconds or a couple minutes or more, depending on how many vocabulary items I find. I use no other sources for vocabulary items, for example the HSK lists (old or new), but just what I find in the above sources. When I start studying Chinese again I will do something I don't do with German or Spanish, which is to keep a notebook by my side and write each character 2-3 times regardless of how well I know it. I will be glad to share more in the future when I get parts of it done in 1000 character batches, and I am planning to go to about 5000-6000. There are various other Chinese decks on AnkiWeb, but none that I know of that go this far, or contain what I have put in. I am not including example sentences because the vocabulary entries themselves take up so much space in many cases. The most important thing to me is having both traditional and simplified forms since I studied both in the past (De Francis series plus PCR), and at least De Francis included simplified forms in the otherwise all traditional material. Anyway, hopefully I can upload the anki deck here successfully, and any interested can download it successfully. Note that it can only be associated with the desktop version, but if someone wishes to reupload it to AnkiWeb that's OK with me.
