Started second Flashcard file

I have started my second jMemorize flashcard file with a short lesson on "Colors and shapes". The file is available HERE.

The next lesson I'm going to add will be about going to the shop.

Why did you choose this flashcard program, and not, say, Flashcard Exchange or one of the others.

Hi Matt,

By Flashcard Exchange I guess you mean www.flashcardexchange.com. I didn't know about this site before reading your comment, but I think if I had known I would have chosen jMemorize anyway because it is completely free.

One other reason I chose JMemorize over some other flashcard software that has been written specifically for learning Chinese. Is that the other software I looked at didn't allow me to have complete sentences on the cards.

I also like the Leitner system and its variations that jMemorize uses.

Flashcard exchange does look good, it was matt's post that put me on to it.

I think I will use it alongside ZDT. I use ZDT because of the neat dictionary and annotator but also becasue of the open source and that it is built in a way that makes it easy to extend (which I will do when I have more time).
