Before You Buy

Please, be sure you have the Anki app installed and are familiar with how to use it before you buy our Anki decks. Click on the icon for links to install the app. (Note: Lingualism is not the app developer. We merely sell decks (data files) that work with the app.)

The over 2000 flashcards are meant to be used as a study tool in conjunction with the book The Big Fat Book of Egyptian Arabic Verbs. There is one flashcard for each of the example sentences from the book. However, the verb in question is replaced in the sentence with an English prompt (translation) in square brackets. The prompt is meant to help you determine the verb form needed in the sentence, but it is often different from the more natural English translation. For example, an active participle is shown in the prompt as an English gerund (verb with -ing). Keep in mind, however, that the active participle in Egyptian Arabic is often used to show a past action with a present result, similar to the present perfect tense in English.  The prompt will show a subject pronoun (he, she, etc.) when the subject cannot be inferred from the rest of the sentence. Gender (m = masculine; f = feminine) and number (pl = plural) are also shown when helpful. Below the sentence, you will see “Show Hint.” Click on this to reveal the verb in its base form. Now you just need to determine the correctly conjugated form of this verb. Say it out loud or write it down on paper. (The cards do not allow typed answers because even one difference in tashkeel (diacritics) will cause the card not to match the answer and be counted as incorrect.) If you are not sure how to conjugate the verb, or prefer to locate the form (as a kind of ‘multiple choice’), refer to the corresponding page in the book–the table number is given below the Hint. Just be sure not to look at the following page with the example sentences if you look up a table! When you click on the “Show Answer” button, you will see the complete sentence, the English translation, and hear the audio.

The deck also includes cards for the basic verb forms (3rd person singular perfect and imperfect forms and masdar(s)). You will be tested Arabic-English and English-Arabic. To study the verbs meanings in isolation (without the example sentences), create a custom study deck choosing the tag 0_verbs. (See following paragraph for instructions.)

    Die Bücher sind klasse.
    Die Anki Karten sind absolut gleich. Habe also die gleichen langen Sätze.
    Finde ich nicht so gut.
    Macht doch bitte Anki Karten im Stil von Kalaam Kull Youm. Das Wäre echt super,
    Was mich auch nervt ist, dass man nicht wie bei den Karten von Stil von Kalaam Kull Youm. die Kapitel sortiert hat. Ich muss Kapitel für Kapitel durcharbeiten.
    Ich habe mir jetzt, in mühevoller Kleinarbeit, eigene Unterkapitel angelegt. Müsste nicht sein!
    Ich würde mir lieber aussuchen, welches Kapitel ich lernen möchte.
    Also! Ran ans ändern.

    • Lingualism


      The reason this deck isn’t divided into subdecks is because it doesn’t have chapters like Kalaam Kull Yoom. Each verb table has about five example sentences only, and there are over 250 tables, so that would make 250+ subdecks with only five cards each. Instead, all cards have tags. To study cards from certain tags, create a ‘Custom Study Session’ in Anki, select study by ‘tag’ and choose the tags to include. This works better for this particular deck than subdecks would.
