This item offers a basic bilingual dictionary, a very useful AudioPad and some tricky games as well.
By using the dictionary, the first thing that catches your attention is the grey background on which bright words in yellow, blue, green, violet and red lie to be read. All entries have IPA transcriptions in bright green, and a yellow loudspeaker offers their pronunciations. Useful information follow in dark blue.
If you right-click on the loudspeaker, the AudioPad opens. You can listen to the native speaker pronunciation and see the graphics, then you record your voice trying to imitate the given model and see your resulting graphics - and absolutely INTERESTING - you can listen to both the recordings in synchronization and watch the two graphics mixed together for a better view of your speech and rhythm.
If you think to be extremely good at a foreign language, just try the crosswords, but mind you, if you are unable to finish them and you click on the white flag, a voice will tell you how bad you are! So, I'll advise you to start with the "learning mode" where a list of terms appears for you to study - and you not only get their translations, but also their meanings and pronunciations. Once you have studied the list of terms, you are ready to try the crosswords as well as the "shooting gallery," a game where you have to type quite fast the translations of the words shown in green on a blackboard. The software continues to repeat the game till you have memorized all the words. If you do it well, you'll get some applause.
The software recognizes different users, and you can sign in your name to have your efforts memorized and displayed in colourful graphs!
I'll advise all foreign languages students to try it. It's a way to improve their knowledge by means of interesting and quite difficult games.
