I've started to use Anki, and I was wondering how other people make flashcards because I'm trying to be more efficient with them to maximize my study time.
The characters make it much more difficult to make flashcards than, say, Spanish, since you have three related things (characters, pinyin, english) instead of two. It's also hard to use pinyin flashcards because Chinese has so many homophones (e.g. is wan3 bowl or evening?) which is only getting worse the more I learn. Adding two things to one side makes it difficult, like if the hanzi and pinyin is on one side, it makes it easy to recognize characters I might otherwise not have known.
If anyone else would like to share their flashcard system, I'd appreciate it.
