I have been working on my Spanish again for just over 2 months now. Wishing I had documented some of my progress along the way and changes I have made in my study habits. Better late than never!

My Anki Spanish deck is divided into 3 groups: Vocabulary, Conjugations, and Grammar. The vocabulary deck was created from an Anki deck I found that had the 5000 most frequent Spanish words. I first activated the top 500, and after working through those, I activated the next 500. I will keep adding the subsequent groups of 500 as I master the active cards. Right now I have too many cards pending for immediate review. I had Anki set up to give me 20 new cards a day and did not realize I was not clearing my older cards as worked on learning new cards. The new cards are visible as the blue portion of each days progress bar.

The Conjugation group is also from an Anki deck I found online. This deck allows me to learn regular and irregular verbs in all the tenses. I currently have only activated the Present Indicative, Preterit, Gerunds, and Participles. I will add the Imperfect once these are mastered, then another tense.

The Grammar group are cards I have developed myself as I read my Grammar book. This group has the least number of cards since I have to create them myself. I just make questions based on the text of the book.
