I'm studying German and I feel the need to learn vocab and sentences as well on the same cards. Basically my technique is to find a sentence not so long, break the vocab down and put it all on the cards as shown below:
I have doubts to this technique, because my brain might extrapolate the remaining words, because these 3 words get "connected" to each other. I'm not completely sure about this, but as I learned the words I realised that mostly I don't even have to think about the next word, it just comes in my mind automatically. If someone has an experience regarding this that would be really helpful.
I don't want to learn one word each, because I don't like simple and short sentences. I like to think about it and usually I can recollect these longer ones really well.
What do you think, should I continue to learn this way or I'm wasting my time? If yes what would be the adequate technique to apply learning German? I don't get any leeches with this technique, I seriously think after a few weeks that it is working.
PS: I know that senken is wrong in this case, I replaced it already with sinken.
For German I need to rely on learning articles and plurals for every noun and verb forms for every verb, so missing out vocab is not an option.
Sentences are also a must-have, because I'd like to implement the learned words into grammatical point of view. Sentences should be somewhat complicated, but not too long.
I am concerned that my mind will connect these multiple words and I will not be able to recollect them individually
Regarding these points what would be the best way to create my cards in the most effective way?
Currently I insist on the way of creating the "main card" with several words and then immediately making a card for each word. This wouldn't be so effective I think, because Anki teaches you the cards in order of creation. So the new cards would pop up in line. That wouldn't work if I'd shuffle it neither (if I would add the same sentences to the one-word-cards as well), because the main card should be the first, so the sentence makes sense, then the rest after some time.
