Decades ago, the Esperanto League for North America, now Esperanto-USA used to give learners a list of False Friends between English and Esperanto. Being the packrat that I am, I still had a copy of the list and I have created 2 TinyCard decks for those who want to learn them.

The decks are findable by either searching in TinyCards for "False Friends in Esperanto" or at this link: ligilo

I am really appreciative of the time it took to make this deck. Thank you, I was planning on making a false friends deck myself and I was compiling a list, but yours is pretty exhaustive and now I don't need to do it. You rock!

I did a few lessons from this yesterday, and discovered a problem when going to revise them today.

I got a card saying "punctual (en)", with the expected answer being "prompt (en)". Then I given a card saying "death-throes (en)", with the expected answer "death-agony (en)". After that, a card saying "prompt (en)", with expected answer "punctual (en)".

I'm often being given English prompts, and then being expected to give English answers. For these questions I'm not seeing any Esperanto to associate with the prompts or answers.

Apart from that, the decks themselves are decent.

Why is there no audio.? This the one thing I have with these cards, so many have no audio.
