Travel Flashcards

2015-01-21

Here are flashcards with vocabulary relating to travel, directions, maps, and navigation. My original motivation for this deck was to learn the cardinal directions. Terms like "southeast" and "GPS unit" are practical but not particularly conversational. When you need the words, you need the words, but they don't show up on a daily basis. Some of the other terms, such as vehicle names, are quite common. The below images are located here. Each flashcard has a picture on the front and the Japanese, phonetic reading, and English on the back.

When I'm not sure which Japanese word to use, I often check on Wikipedia. Most of these words are there with the English and Japanese cross-linked. Presumably the editors there considered which Japanese word best corresponds to which English word, and if I don't have a strong view of what to go with, I go with theirs. Another good way to see what things are called is to look them up on Amazon Japan and see what the vendors there call them.

Here's the fifty-card package for Anki.
