Quickly Transfering Duolingo Words to Flash Card Program?
Hello! Is there a way to quickly move Duolingo words to a flash card program such as Anki? Entering the words one by one is becoming annoying.
I've been doing this by hand for the Spanish words, and found I actually learned quite a lot in the process of wording them as questions for the cards on Anki.
Flashcards supplement Duolingo very well, and I would recommend that approach to anyone.
Just to expand a bit, in the process of adding a word I will often look up the word on SpanishDict.com to see if it has any other meanings, and also to see if there are any prominent synonyms. Also, I'll note related words such as nouns formed from verbs and vice versa. Additional material like this can be part of the flash card.
It helps to be slightly obsessive. :)
I have been doing this for a while, too. Anki can be a good supplement for any language learning :-)
Just saw this posted on Twitter. There will be flashcards in the future on Duolingo :)
I usually copy the vocabulary table (via txt export/ plugin) to Excel (or any spreadsheet), use a web service to translate the table (Bing translate works), correct translation if necessary, import into Memrize via bulk entry. Works!
there is also an add in for chrome: Duolingo Vocab manager. It is a flash card program. You can load your words from Duolingo in a few seconds and learn the words . You can speek (switch the word from one language to the other) and give a period for testing the word the next time, if you give the right translation. For new words, you have to reload the whole database (a few seconds), but you lose your given periods for testing words.The add in works for all the languages, but when changing languages, you lose your given periods for testing words also. Probably it works on a tablet with the Chrome browser, but not with a smartphone. Also, you do not earn lingots or points.
I did make a copy with control c - control v to excel. You can click on a word in the first colon and then you go to the page for testing that word in Duolingo.
How can I use Bing translate for translating a colon? It should be fine, when i could translate to English, and also to my native language.
Thanks, everything works. Only female/male is not in the database :-(
"Duolingo Vocab manager" is a plugin for the Chrome webbrowser
Yes, I grokked that. I was asking @RStroebel what plugin was he referring to. (is it the same chrome extension you are mentioning?)
No it isn't the same. He speaks about transfert the words to excel. I didn't it that way. I did make a copy with control c - control v to excel: make al words blue (with left mouse button and move to the end) - control c - open a new excel file, click on A1 en - paste: control v.
No. There is no included functionality nor any API for outsiders to make it. On top of that, the vocabulary is loaded with a script, so you can't even parse it without evaluating the page first ...
It'd certainly be a useful feature for down the road at some point. Not that the folks who run Duo don't have enough on their hands already, feature-wise.
Have you looked at the available decks on Ankiweb?
There's no deck with the complete german vocabulary from Duolingo (at the moment) but one of those larger vocabulary decks might be a good place to start.
I took advice and downloaded Anik but i made a mistake and clicked spanish instead of english now even if i uninstall and start again it only gives it to me in spanish, can anybody help.
According to the internet you'll be able to solve that by deleting the file "prefs.db" in your Anki folder.
In Windows it's most likely located in Documents/Anki
i wanted to enter the words one by one because it adds to the learning but without a spanish keyboard how do i put in the accents.
Internationalize your keyboard and down load a map so that you know where the keys are. If you just need a quick method, go to http://www.asciitable.com/, write down the ascii for what you need. Hold down your alt key while typing the number on your keypad, then release the alt key. alt 164 ñ alt 165 Ñ
