Dear memory athletes.
For a while now I am using Anki for studying and want to use it now for learning a language, namely French
Now as we all know there are many decks available online, but I rather create my own content. The way I want to learn a language is called ‘‘Telenovela method’’. The telenovela method is learning a language by watching your favorite movies and trying to learn spoken words in the movie (I got the method from a book made by the author Andrew Tracey).
So the way I had been making flashcards went as followed:
- Print screening the image with the sub in my native language
- Print screening the image with the sub in the target language
- Ripping the audio
- Putting it all together.
This method took me hours, looked bad and all that trouble for not even more then 100 flashcards.
That was until I discovered Subs2srs…
Subs2srs can make 1000 flashcards for you of a simple movie of 1 hour and 30 minutes in less then 5 - 10 minutes with audio support! What makes this program even greater is that it has a bunch of option for making the subs not overlapping eachother and I also like the feature to have dual subs on 1 picture.
It surely enhanced my learning and if I practice every day I hope to be able to speak a bit of French at the end of this year.
I hope I can help someone with this post and may you be a succeeding linguist.
Have a nice day.
