You draw up lists of words with their translation in the other language and the software is given the responsability to launch the tests of vocabulary according to your parameters of order or frequency.

Rare thing, the control of this software is entirely between your hands.

Vocab is a simple and effective tool which generates tests of vocabulary to learn the words from another language.

You draw up lists of words with their translation in the other language and the software is given the responsability to launch the tests of vocabulary according to your parameters of order or frequency. For the student, feedback is automatic; at the end of the test, the words which make problem are identified. It can even follow its progression.

But, it is not all. A software-programmer of tests, Vocab-scheduler, allows to create a series of tests which will make that in a few days you will have all the vocabulary of a list, lists after list. The exercises can be associated the starting of the computer, your saver of screen or one of the corners of your screen; they are thus available any time.

The study at will, on the least occasion: it is a formula to be retained!

However, the routines of generation of these tests are based on research which related to the memorizing of the words of a foreign language: in as little as 12 tests, up to 90 % of the words of a list are retained in the long-term memory. It is certain that personal and cultural differences can vary these results, but the quality of the tool is real.

One would all the same have appreciated the possibility of putting definitions, subtle differences between the words and their synonyms or of associating the sound of their pronunciation there; but one does not have to be done some, that will surely come.

This software received many prices. Personally, I would decree those of the most simplicite/efficacity report/ratio and accessibilite/adaptability to him: it can make a bridge in quasi virtually all the languages. A wonder on several plans.

Vocab, partagiciel, free and fully functional for 30 days, personal version and "classroom" available. For Macintosh and Windows.
