We don’t support this yet (“cloze testing”) but we have added support for it in 4.0. (Can draw from a pool of sentence flashcards or from all dictionary examples)
I'm not sure if it's possible. For the flash cards, I guess it is just a matter of replacing the Pinyin with blanks (or say underbar characters, etc. for better readability).
But, I'm not sure if Pleco has a test type that allows you to type the answer. (The fill in the blanks option seems to require use of handwritten entry using Plecos handwriting recogniser) Anybody else know if Pleco has such an option?
Just to be sure I understand correctly, do you mean you don't want to see the Pinyin at all. Rather you want to directly see the English translation as the hint?
I am late to this conversation but I am very much interested in what you describe right here. That is, uploading your list as a flashcard list but lacking the pinyin hint in the blank space where the word should be. Is it possible to filter that pinyin out in excel quickly without brute forcing the entire 23k list?
What’s the easiest way to batch these by 100 at a time so that they are reviewable in groups?Dear all,
here’s a file of 18,896 quite realistic-sounding HSK sentences, in ascending order of complexity. I imported them from a tatoeba sentence list some time ago. They’re useful for reinforcing one’s feeling for sentence structure and grammatical constructions. They work best with the Self-graded studying mode or even just by browsing through in Card Info.
Caveat: The generated pinyin is sometimes off, and the English often sounds like it hadn’t been translated by a native English speaker.
Hope you like it, cheers, Shun
Edit: The file in message number 24 is ordered by sentence length. I'm also attaching it here.
