Question: Is there anything available akin to these types of flashcards, but for Tagalog? Or, could this be added as a flashcard deck?

Essentially, they're large compilations of sentence-to-sentence translations with audio, and the sentences are sorted from easy to hard so a beginner can jump in with zero experience. These types of flashcard decks are purported to be a great way to learn idiomatically from natural language.
 
It seems like a similar thing would be easy to do with tagalog.com's sentence database - just compute the average frequency rank of every sentence, sort the sentences by average frequency rank, and then create flashcards with the audio and sentence-to-sentence translations. Does this exist somewhere, or alternatively could this be added as a flashcard deck on tagalog.com? Or is there a good sentence database with audio and frequency list I could use to make this myself?

@PinoyTaj never heard of Glossika before - is this a popular resource? $30 US per month is pretty steep - do you recommend it?
 
What I described seems like it could be implemented pretty simply though. I don't think it'd be worth $30/month. The hardest part is finding the sentence set in the first place.

@brendan I used it as a beginner , I only had to pay $20 a month and it’s exactly what you’re talking about but a more advanced version.

The sentences here at TDC are not exactly the type of sentences one would probably want in a program like this. Indeed Glossika while not perfect is def the way to go.

@PinoyTaj Are you still using Glossika? I've been using it not very consistently over the past two years, and I'm at A1 High (30.3%). Curious to know what your experience has been. You too, @AMBoy.

@Dakila I finished it at the C-1 level in about 6-7 months. I had 30,000 + reps and 150+ hours.
 
I would say it helped me alot (my opinion).

@PinoyTaj That's seriously impressive. What was your schedule? How many new words per day? Reps for previous words?

@Dakila As you can see by the medals I did a lot more new sets than reviews.
 
I’d do 100 new set reps a day which = 25 actual new sentences then I do a review session when I actual reached 100 new sentences in the review section (not reps).

@PinoyTaj I’ve been spending a lot more time with reviews myself. Probably should be focusing on new sets otherwise I’ll never get to C1. Curious to know what C1 sentences are like? More complex than A1? Feel like I’ve been stuck at A1 forever. Now that you’ve completed C are you still using Glossika? What have you found most useful with Glossika?

@Dakila The sentences get long / turn into paragraphs or even dialogues etc. You get new verbs / words etc. Actually I don’t use glossika anymore, it’s good to get a feel for the language but now I’m to the point where it’s too easy and is a waste of time. I think you should try to advance throug it (A2, B1, B2 etc). because it will push you to learn new things and reviewing to much isn't a good thing in general when it comes to language learning.
