English vocabulary through pictures
Words: Pointing at objects with the mouse brings up labels. Clicking on them allows the learner to hear the words spoken.
Sentences: The learner is presented with a number of sentences related to the topic, with accompanying pictures to assist comprehension. These introduce a variety of verbs to connect the (mostly) nouns on the picture pages, as well as some adjectives and prepositions. After all of the sentences have been heard there is a matching activity to reinforce the language structures.
Quiz: Comprehension is tested by a "quiz" in which you are asked to find a selection of objects in the picture, and you have to click on the correct object.
Test: The same, but all of the items are tested, and you are not told whether the answers are correct until the end of the test.
Writing: The writing activity tests the user's ability to reproduce the language and spell the words correctly. Some hints will be given if required.
At the end of each session the learner is encouraged to print out a progress report.
