The “Chinese 625 Words Anki Flashcards” are specially made for Chinese learners who would like a digital flashcard deck of the 625 most common words in Chinese. The words are inspired from the Fluent Forever word list, but we have added our own audios, pictures, IPA, gender color mnemonics and put them all in a convenient Anki deck for you. This will save you several weeks or even months of time.

This flashcard deck and the Anki software are very customizable. So, you can add your own notes to personalize your 625 Chinese vocabulary words flashcards. For example, you could add your dog’s name for the word “dog” or change the image to your home city for the word “city”.


You could create your own Anki flashcards for free, but making cards for Chinese 625 words could take so much of your time and effort. On average it takes 3 minutes to create just 1 card.

Where are the Chinese 625 Words Sourced From?

The Chinese 625 words are inspired from the Fluent Forever book and the Fluent Forever 625 word list. Unfortunately, Fluent Forever only released a PDF version of the list, and never created an Anki deck with those words. That’s why we sourced those 625 words from the Fluent Forever book, and then we gathered our own IPA, native audio, and images. Then we packaged it all conveniently for you in our own Anki flashcard deck, so that you save more time, and get started with studying Mandarin Chinese right away.

BONUS: Remember Extra Features of Chinese Words Easily with Colors

Most words in Chinese have extra features that you need to remember. These features can be difficult to recall because English does not have these features like multiple writing systems (such as Traditional Characters), the romanization of Chinese Characters with Pinyin, as well as counter/measure words. That’s why we have color coded the Traditional Characters as Green, the Pinyin as Purple, and the Counter/Measure Words as Red. Your brain will associate the colors with the additional vocab features, and therefore make it easier for you to remember them. So you speak with more confidence.
