@lukbe: Thanks for stopping by. To be honest, I don't really worry about it. If an
English word has multiple definitions in my word list, I concatenate them in the Swedish
side of the card:

ENG: dermatologist
SWE: dermatolog, hudläkare

If a synonym is not in my word list, it doesn't get learned. Such is the way of things -
luckily I'm not a perfectionist in this regard.

You may have answered this earlier in the thread, however, how are you quizzing yourself
on the previous words? Just going back through the whole list every day?

It seems subconsciously I'm thinking of two-way cards, and that's how I didn't think of this. I mean, that's just what I do for the L2->L1 direction, just list synonyms.

I should reflect on this a little bit. I mean I can't do the same thing as you, with so many words, as I don't have any source for this (for Cantonese), and because I don't think I could have the willpower to go through hours of daily Anki reviews. Also I can't link the words to any language I know, so I must definitely learn more slowly.

However, I'm thinking about creating such a deck according to my interests, with priority given to the words I know I may want to say, as well as with some of the words I may grab from radio and tv shows.

Thanks, and keep up the good work!

@Bbcatcher 08: I'm using a program called Anki, which is spaced repetition software.
They have a desktop version, which I use to enter the cards, an Android version, which
I use to do my learning/reviewing, and a web version, which helps to sync them all
together. When you answer a card in Anki, the program will schedule that card to be
seen again, at longer and longer intervals between. So, if I see a card, and get it
right, it will show me again in 4 days, then if I get it right in 4 days time, it will
show me again in 8 days, etc. This way, I don't have to go over the list of words every
day, which would be a monumental (and unnecessary) task.

@lukbe: You're right, this approach is probably only effective when you can "hook" onto
things you know. For something like Cantonese, the pace would be much more limited. Good
luck with your deck, and please let us know how you get on with it.

@Rob- Do you have to make the cards yourself, or are they already on there?

@Bbcatcher 08: I make the cards myself, by pulling them from dictionaries and ebooks that
I purchase, using scripts to format them for importing into Anki. There are some shared
decks in Anki that might be useful to you.
