Arabic Learner’s Dictionary: Anki Flashcards
With over 10,000 flashcards, this massive Anki deck contains the entire contents of the Lingualism Arabic Learner’s Dictionary. The deck includes reverse-cards, bringing the actual total number of cards to over 20,000. These reverse-cards show the English translation first, forcing you to see how well you can recall the Arabic. See the sample images to get a better understanding of the cards’ layouts.
Audio for the headword of each card has been professionally recorded by a native speaker of Arabic.
There are three ways you can study the cards:
- Alphabetical order: By default, cards will be presented in alphabetical order.
- Random order: Click Options and set the order to “show new cards in random order.”
- Only specific words: If you prefer to focus on specific words, you can suspend all cards (so that they are not presented) and unsuspend only those you which to be tested on. To suspend all cards: Browse → Current Deck → highlight all cards → Suspend. Then search for cards you want to be tested on and click “suspend” to unsuspend them. Unfortunately, Anki has some search limitations. You may not be able to find an Arabic word if you do not type the exact diacritics. To get around this, download the add-on “Ignore accents in browser search” (code: 1924690148), which adds a check-box next to the search bar. For more tips on searching in Anki, click here.
