Jalup Expert Audio Pre-Order (Round 2) — 37 Comments

  1. I remember when Jalup expert first came out, those were good times in my learning journey. I definitely recommend this for those of you on the come up for expert.

    Also, Adam do you have any recommendations for books? I’ve been needing a new read and I’m open to any suggestion.

  2. I’m preordering. Didn’t get an email confirmation though so if it didn’t go through Adam let me know and I’ll submit again.

  3. My preorder is in, even though I don’t use Anki anymore lol

    Is there an expected time frame for when Next will have the remaining expert cards uploaded and audio added (if this little kick starter for the audio is successful)?

    • Thanks Juan!

      Unfortunately there is no expected time frame yet. What killed the progress was the lack of support for the expert decks on NEXT (almost no one has purchased them outside of the max package). It takes several months to link them, and I just couldn’t justify all that time.

      There is the possibility where I may do a fundraiser for Jalup Next Expert stages, but since there has been no real request for them, I haven’t thought that much about it.

      • Ah no worries, it will take me a while to catch up to where NEXT is up to so I’ll keep crossing my fingers as I plod along.

        Probably goes without saying that I’ll chip in for the NEXT expert fundraiser if that becomes a thing :)

        • FWIW, I plan to buy the expert stages on NEXT, I just haven’t done it yet because I haven’t finished going through the previous decks. I’d gladly participate in a NEXT preorder / fundraiser though, if that’s what it takes. I’ve found the linking aspect of NEXT to be invaluable, and it would be great to be able to keep learning using the same platform too.

  4. Are we supposed to buy decks 1 – 4 before we get all of the audio or is buying 1 deck and one preorder enough?

    • So technically you don’t need to have any of the decks to make the pre-order purchase. But in order to receive the audio if/when it’s finished, you need to have purchased stages 1-4. You can do this at a later date if you want.

  5. Hi everyone, I just pre-ordered the Jalup Expert Audio. Really hope we can make this happen together. Thanks in advance to everyone supporting this!

  6. Do you know (Adam, or anyone else here): is there any easy(ish) way to attach the audio files to my existing Jalup Expert cards? Like, if I just move the audio files into my deck’s media folder, do you know if it will associate them correctly, or will there be some kajiggering involved?

    Edit: Looks like kajiggering is indeed required — there’s a [sound] field that would need to be added for each file. Might not be too tough with some Anki DB hacks, though… maybe just import the deck, mark dupes, and write a little script that copies over the [sound] bit or something? Hmmm :D

    • There is a way to do this. I’m not 100% familiar with it though, but I will see if I can do some research and write up a guide to accomplish this.

      Unless someone out there already knows the easy solution and wants to let me know so I can put it up as a post :)

  7. Man missed the preorder but very excited!

    If possible, can a folder with just the audio be included in the download when bought? I will be buying this but I can’t retroactively add the readings to my cards so I’d rather just use them for immersion practice.

  8. It was great to see that we made this happen for part 1. Let’s make it happen for part 2 as well – I’m in of course!

  9. I have no idea if this is the correct place to ask this question, but here it goes :x

    I’ve got most of Jalup’s regular deck series on anki (only missing expert 8 now, waiting until I can get it), and I don’t feel like doing all those steps to update the decks with the new audio without losing my progress if I decide to purchase the audio versions in a near future. Most of the time I actually prefer not to have audio on my decks because I do a lot of reviews at work and public places. Do we get the mp3 files when we purchase the versions with the audio? Because that would be amazing for me, as I’m concerning myself with pronunciation more and more by this point.

    • Toshi, if you make a new profile in Anki and import a deck with audio there, you can go to the “” folder of the new profile, and copy out the MP3 audio files to another folder of your choice.

  10. Will Round 1 and 2 (with audio) eventually be added to the store? And if so, will there be an option to buy the full Expert deck with audio? How will that all work? Thanks in advance.

    • The audio will be added to the expert decks for regular purchase in the store. So if you buy a brand new Jalup Expert package it will include the audio.

      If you already had Jalup Expert, then you will have to purchase an upgrade (which I will also offer).

  11. Can you flip the cards and test your listening only? Similar to situations. I wonder if it’s even a good thing to do.

    • Yes, you can. You just need to rearrange the fields. Have the front field be the audio, and the back field everything else.

      For extra listening practice experience it could definitely help. But just remember that if you solely did this you would miss out on the important reading practice.
