interactive learning software?

Postby GleepGlop » Sun 05.22.2005 5:31 pm

im looking for some software where i have to type in the answers (the interaction). ive found slime forest and kicl which are great, but really i dont need the game part. right now im looking for a vocab trainer in particular. i dont think it could be too hard to program. i may have to learn how to program it myself, but i havent programmed since highschool. may take a while... i found one called vocabulearn but theres no sign of the download. i think its old and probably not available anymore...

I use Memorylifter. It is good BUT... it doesn't have any facility to enter or display Japanese characters. If you are willing to use romaji it's fine. I use it to drill English-to-Japanese for conversation. (Obviously, for conversation the only concern is the sound, so romaji, while not elegant, is fine.)

I still say try Lexikan. It has nice flashcard modes for kanji and jukugo, which is great if you want to drill recognition of written forms.

Ive been using that rosetta stone software, the only complaint i have about that is they really dont explain word usage or why etc. but, it has helped my pronunciation and word recognition. its is expensive, but the only reason i can use it is the military offers them for free.
