Italian Computer Programs
- Tense Tutor (MAC)
A companion program to Verb Tutor With Sound. Drills on 200
additional sentences, all read in high quality digitized sound
by a native speaker. Whereas the Verb Tutor tests on all
tenses of a single verb, tense tutor allows user to select the
tense he wants to be drilled on and then drills him on many
verbs in that same tense. It is totally user modifiable. You
can change the sentences it comes with, delete them, add new
verbs and sentences; modify, delete and add translations and
explanations as well. Add conjugations for the new words.
- Word Torture (MAC)
Automated vocabulary drills. Comes with from 1400 to 1600
verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, comparatives, etc. Use as
drill and type in the translations, or use as flash cards.
Program can keep score and redrill on missed words. You can
create drill sets of different sizes. Drill from target
language to English or English to target language. Random
generation assures that words will never appear in the same
order (unless you want them to be). Set the time interval
between seeing the word and its translation. Can be user
modified; add more words to those that come with the stack.
