Create a field for a Mnemonic Device in your note type. Then use
conditional replacement to create a card that is only generated
when that field is not blank; a card that gives you the word and
asks you for the mnemonic device.
Then, when you're reviewing and you notice a word giving you
trouble, hit 'E' to bring up the note editor and add a mnemonic
device for the word to field. It doesn't need to be a good one;
even terrible mnemonics are better than nothing.
Then presto! you have a new card to help with learning this word.
It will, of course, be at the end of the new card queue, so if you
have a bunch of cards, you'll have to manually move it tho the
front of the line.
*Also display the mnemonic on the reverse side of the other cards
as well.

I'm those who swear by sentence cards. I've tried drilling 2000
vocabulary cards. Turned out to be the biggest waste of my time. Sure
I can recall those individual words but... That's it. I couldn't form

sentences nor could I speak. Switched to sentence cards and I'm far
better off. There are words like a special dish is better with a picture
and a vocabulary card.

Do you use reading recognition only card type, listening recognition
card, or production card, or combination?

[] hnous927 1 point 1 day ago


My primarily focus is reading recognition sentence card. I have
listening recognition card (Front: Audio; back: sentence) but I
rarely do them. Production card for special vocab like a special
dish or special holiday.
