Interesting (and impressive) stats, what's your definition of "learned" in Pleco? IIRC the default is "score >=400".It is very difficult to quantify which strategy is good. But I make some statistics every week, where I write how many new words I learned (based on pleco's statistics data) and what material I have read.
These are my Anki stats, soon after I abandoned it in favour of just reading + flashcarding words I had too look up in Pleco 2 or more times (initially it was 3 times but there are so few of those). Cards were one-way. Anki's definition of "mature" is "next interval > 21d, which in default Pleco settings would equal to score>2100. Of those 5200+ words there's a full HSK1-5 set plus maybe 500 of HSK6, other ~2k are non-HSK. I'll flashcard HSK 6 vocab if/when I get to do the test. In Pleco probably, especially if the 4.0 comes out Several people advised me to stop flashcarding after 4k-5k words anyways.If I could get the same kind of statistics from somebody else who keeps learning in a different way, that would be extremely interesting to compare.
Not Anki per se (Anki's are at the bottom of the screen, the crude ones), most of it is via plugins - https://github.com/agelastic/Anki-plugins if you want to know (they may or may not be available on Anki addon exchange, plus I recall tweaking some a little). I guess these particular results are the joint effort of More_Decks_Stats, Review Heatmap, Chinese_support and 21EaseFactorHistogram plugins. Hanzi Stats is a separate one, it just counts per-character stats and splits chars you "know", or rather seen as a part of a word, by HSK level, frequency etc. Separate stats screen for that one.Wow, those stats are incredibly detailed!! Are they provided by Anki, or did you compute them?
I can only admire your perseverance! I'm aspiring to be a professional translator (having studied both Chinese studies and Chinese translation separately) and I can read most things thrown at me in both character sets, but I do need to use the dictionary a lot, and many times, my understanding is based on educated guessing (only in leisure reading, of course). I wish I had kept the habit of practicing with flashcards every day. But at some point after a few years of study, I felt it wasn't any longer efficient, because my database only had words where I needed the words in context (sentences).Pulling up this old thread to give some updates.
I started this thread mid-2017 and it is now early 2019.
