Study tips

Make your own top 500 to top 1,000 word list using Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice (free software) spreadsheet. Suggested column headings are shown above.

To be efficient in the study, pick your own words that are most useful to you. Give a ranking on usefulness of each word. Give yourself a score on how much you remember. You can create additional columns on listening comprehension and speaking as well as your own notes or mnemonics. Spreadsheets work wonder in sorting columns to group by categories and usefulness or identifying the areas of improvement with low scores.

If you have not learned the script, you can still proceed without the script column. Just use the Romanization as a guide.

Color Codes: nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, conjunctions, particles, postpositional markers, interjections.
