If there's grammar rule that requires a couple of steps of thought in order to create the correct output, how do I put it into flashcards?
For example, Spanish has (as well as imperative) the subjunctive and indicative moods where subjunctive is used by Wishes, Emotions, Impersonal expressions, Recommendations, Doubts and denial, and Ojalá (collectively WEIRDO), and indicative is used by Speech, Perceptions, Occurrences, Certainty, and Knowledge (SPOCK).
If I was being super methodical in doing the grammar of a sentence, I'd look at a sentence like "Espero que vengas a la fiesta." and do the following steps to determine the grammar of "vengas":
- "Espero" is a Wish about the verb "vengas".
- A Wish is a WEIRDO
- WEIRDO uses the subjunctive.
- The second person subjunctive present tense of venir is vengas
What approach should I take for putting all of this into my brain? Should I just create a grammar cloze card that basically says
The sentence is "Espero que ____ a la fiesta.", the verb in the blank is venir in the second person present
Or should I create additional flash cards for parts of the process, and if so, how would that work?
The spaced repetition software I'm using is Anki, if that's relevant.
