I decided to make a totally innocent thread about an Anki deck I made for this book while I was studying it. It is basically a very thorough Anki deck containg all the grammar points, with Japanese sentences, explanations and English translations. I spent a lot of time making it, so it would be a pity if I couldn't share it with the community, you never know if someone needs it for their studies, want to improve on it, or just want it for their collection. :p
This deck is based on the revised, newest edition of the book. (As of June 2010) Some fields in the spreadsheet are left empty, but this is intentional. All the information from the grammar section of the book is included.
Cool! Thank you! But I guess I misunderstood what grammar point means. I don't think you can learn grammar without the rules. I thought this would be just it, a nice compilation of the grammar rules in the book... Anyway, did you type this in all on your own? Whoa..I know it takes a lot of time. Wasn't there an electric version of the book?
As it happens, I just bought that book online a few days ago. If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's an unofficial successor to the two Genki books, which I finished last month. I haven't done much with the book yet, but I hope to start reading it this week.
Twinzen, would you be willing to share your deck with those of us who already own the book? I could send you a proof-of-purchase seal or something.
Thanks a lot for this. I've wanted to make a deck for IAIJ ever since I got it but always got kinda demotivated when it came to actually having to sit down and do it (awful patience, plus I had no idea how to organize it) The work's greatly appreciated.
@SammyB: Did you get any errors when you imported? I did, and it only got 63 cards the first time.
I think the problem (at least for me) is the way Google Docs exports .CSVs. It doesn't add commas as placeholders for empty fields, and Anki seems to expect that based on the errors it gave me ("card has 6 fields, expected 7", etc.) After I opened it in OpenOffice and resaved it as a .CSV, it imported 308 cards. OpenOffice also put every field in quotes, if that makes a difference
