1. The example sentences should be simple and common.

Some notes about the list:
- Most of the word only have one simple meaning (the most common meaning - the 1st meaning on naver dict)
- Some words have 2 meanings, because both meanings are quite common.
- Words that appear two/three times on the list will all have different meaning (the higher rank of the word on the list, the more common
meaning they get; no word is duplicated)

About the anki deck:
- Audio will be autoplay (on the front cards). You can change the way it
plays (on back cards/mute...) by changing the card templates
- Words that have same writing, same pronunciation will be merged in 1 card.
- Words that have same writing but different pronunciation will be in different cards
Ex: 452, 821, 881: 배 will be in 2 cards
배 [배] Abdomen, stomach, belly; Boat, ship, vessel [배]
배 [배ː] Multiples (two times, three times, etc) [배ː])

+ List: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Frequency_lists/Korean_5800
+ Simple meaning: http://ezcorean.com/ (base) (TOPIKGUIDE doesnt load for me, but I have seen some anki decks and memrise courses use the TPG list, and it seems TPG and ezcorean are the same (or really similar) list. And there're many mistakes and such.
+ Sort the words (a-z) so that the same words are next to each other.
+ Quick check on the list, correct oblivious mistakes, change the meaning of duplicated words (according to naver dict ranking)... -> first draft
+ Have a native Korean check on the list -> edit -> 2nd draft
+ Compare list with this: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AmNSiKPlnDtTdFE2WXd2UFo3OVRkSDdFcTZNdzNqQVE - a joint project from r/korean -> words that aren't matched (btw this list and my list) get check on naver dict -> 3rd draft
+ Format list, edit, sort words... -> final version
