Intermediate- to advanced-level French vocabulary Tinycards decks

Hey everyone! I've been learning French for the last couple years and have started making some pretty comprehensive Tinycards decks for a little while as I've narrowed down that I need to work most on my vocab. Here's all the ones I've made so far (most have 100+ cards in them, and I'm adding to them all the time):

Animals I: https://tiny.cards/decks/c3647240-5937-4460-a3bb-4662efea71e2

Animals II: https://tiny.cards/decks/3deeadbd-2d46-4075-94ca-e2984a777d35

Nature (words like 'pond', 'bay', 'wetland', 'environment', etc): https://tiny.cards/decks/c20435a4-fb75-4051-85f6-c9321104f918

Finance (like 'save', 'spend', 'stock', 'mortgage', etc): https://tinycards.duolingo.com/decks/2381e6ed-78b8-4bdc-a6e7-343a23b945ea

Clothing (all different articles of clothing, from 'hat' to 'suit of armour', and adjectives to describe clothing like 'striped', 'polka-dotted', etc): https://tiny.cards/decks/14e9ddfa-0ad6-43e8-a4f7-93d6e3c952c8

Body parts or nouns related to the body (from outer parts like 'belly button' to organs to words like 'bruise'): https://tiny.cards/decks/a2114ffb-188e-4c35-a03b-d4ec86755201

Body actions (like 'to sneeze', 'to digest', 'to cough', 'to rock back and forth', etc): https://tiny.cards/decks/ee1a0a4f-0efe-487d-a5dd-a6495f6ddd32

Cooking verbs (like 'whip', 'fry', 'bake' etc): https://tiny.cards/decks/de6eda65-42a1-4ae9-8505-3612a8a3a072

Baking ingredients and recipes (like 'flour', 'shortening', 'food colouring', etc): https://tiny.cards/decks/1d8eee3d-b685-46cd-8a93-c9cfb8edf9a0

Objects you'd find in a kitchen: https://tiny.cards/decks/4419ccf9-b417-49f5-942a-be713b7bfc6b

Types of homes and residences: https://tiny.cards/decks/a28f02b1-77d4-4611-a89e-f4570e3c7d07

Computer terms for software (like click, drag, copy, paste, etc): https://tiny.cards/decks/0f916201-dbeb-43e7-84a3-b033f46cfe60

Computer terms for hardware (like keyboard, motherboard, processor, etc): https://tiny.cards/decks/2b11c4b6-8729-4923-bcd2-a80f59953e24

Canadian (québécois) French: https://tiny.cards/decks/a14f78a3-4add-4b98-bbb5-06c28989284c

Canadian French (crude language): https://tiny.cards/decks/a9308865-db5e-4d89-b1d6-f1b621870beb

Canadian French (expressions): https://tiny.cards/decks/208c7e62-6bb1-4e1e-877d-790db5558bdf

I'm making more all the time (I'm currently working on more generalized lists of abstract nouns/random objects, have at least a couple more 'Animals' decks to make, with plans for a "Things you'd find around the house" and "Actions you'd do with an object" decks, among others) and am open to suggestions for new ones. Thought I'd share them here so we don't all have to compile these vocab lists ourselves.

I've been learning German for about eight months now too, so will translate these all into German at some point probably a few months from now as well.

Merci!

I don't know what to say! You have put so much hard work into making these decks for us! It is you who must be thanked!

I'm French and I thank you because I can use all of your cards as a reverse tree for learning some words I don't know in English. I just discovered cards thanks to you, so maybe someone else has done something similar from French to English, just in order to have the correct pronunciation of English word :)

Je pensais pas qu'il y aurait des francophones qui utiliseraient mes cartes pour apprendre l'anglais - je peux les régler pour qu'ils prononcent les mots en anglais aussi !

C'est comme tu le souhaites mais je ne veux pas te déranger :) Comment ca se passe si tu mets une double prononciation dans 2 langues différentes ? On pourra choisir la langue prononcée ?

Merci d'avance :)

C'est déjà fait - tout ce qu'il fallait était de basculer un petit bouton - en créant un « deck » (on l'appelle comme un « jeu » en français ?), on peut choisir la langue de chaque côté de toutes les cartes dans les réglages. Il prononcera alors le mot dans sa propre langue selon le côté de la carte quand on appuie sur le bouton haut-parleur :)

Trop bien ! Merci :) J'utilise le mot "deck" en Francais aussi, ca reste compréhensible. Sinon après une petite recherche, "a deck of cards" c'est un "paquet de cartes".

Merci encore d'avoir fait ça pour moi :)

Merci Saelyra! Canadian crude language seems fun, it may allow me to troll in a different language.

@Saelyria If I want to create cards have I the possibility of image, word and sound?

November 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Saelyria

Yeah, you can add images pretty easy. Right now they have built-in sound for certain languages (when you make your deck, you select what language the front and/or back of all your cards is); you can't add your own sound clips. Last I checked they don't have images with sound unless you edit the images.
