How to Remember Genders
We explain the Gender Triggers that are built in to the pictures for each noun.
All nouns in European languages have a gender, or sex. The gender is important because the adjectives also reflect the gender.
Long a tricky part of language learning we have bridged the gap and give you 4 easy Gender Triggers with each noun.
Autorun / Background Music / Writing Foreign Characters and Accents
On Autorun the lesson can self-run. Great for previewing you are going to learn and for reviewing material you have learned.
The Background Music function allows you to select the right 'Superlearning' music to play while you learn.
We also show you the short-cuts to write all the foreign characters required in our courses. You will need to write the foreign words exactly to gain optimum points in your tests.
Learning Modes - Excelearning / Kinesthetic
Explains about our different learning styles. We incorporate all learning styles in our courses.
Schedule / Testing Options / Review your Progress
The programme keeps a track of all your learning, and learning times.
On start-up, after the Log-in page, if you just push the 'Enter' key the programme will automatically take you to the 'Schedule' page which tells you what lesson you should be doing next, and also what Lesson you should be reviewing.
All lessons learned should be reviewed. And the programme keeps a note of your progress and tells you when you should be reviewing your material. (All at the Optimum times for Review).
So it will tell you that you are due to review.
You can also check your progress - lessons / tests attempted, learning rates, etc - and track your learning.
Dictionary / Build your own Lesson / Special Lessons / Build your own Lessons
Tips and tricks on how to use the Dictionary (just click on a word and it takes you there to the pic and sounds.)
Build your own Lesson: Allows you to choose words from the Dictionary to build your own Custom built lessons.
Special Lessons: There are several Special Lessons. The most important is 'My Worst Words.'
This is the list of words you get wrong most often, so it is a lesson you should constantly revisit, because it is constantly updating itself.
You can also write your own personal notes for each word - they are then stored in your own database.
