Hello

Post by rjwalker »

Hello. I'm joining the group formally now, after having been a lurker for about 20 years, in order to ask my own questions ...

Relevant background about me: I have a BD from the University of London, which I did through their International Programme. I did all the Hebrew (and Greek) courses on offer. I have used Anki (http://ankisrs.net) to learn (so far) > 1500 words of Hebrew vocabulary – a combination of the highest-frequency words, the main textbook I learnt from (Weingreen) and the words in the set texts I had to learn for exams (Ge 42-45, Ex 1-15, Pr 1-9). I have Weingreen and Lambdin next to the bed and often use them to drill myself on paradigms and grammar ... "use it or lose it".

Irrelevant background about me: my day job uses my first degree, which is in computer science. (Gratuitous name-drop: the author of Anki was one of my students in the days when I used to teach undergraduate computer science.)

Greetings Richard, and Welcome to B-Hebrew. :)

Just been and downloaded Anki - looks like a great tool that needs more publicity!

@S_Walch

You say it needs more publicity, but have you even used the program?

It looks like a generic program and I don't see any list of hebrew words anywhere in it.

If you can provide the list of words you imported into that program then that'd be great.

Certainly have; from literally 10 mins after downloading it :)

Once you register, you can do a search on ankiweb.net for anything that there might be flash cards on.

As you can see, quite a few :)
