Advanced French Vocabulary Trainer

Donít be content knowing the words oiseau, fleur, arbre, etc.   Learn also the names of all of their varieties.

This software teaches more than 2000 words - nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc. classified under 52 topics, as well as five grammar topics.

The topics include, among many others, the human body (inside and outside), history, the motor car, science, the countries of the world, living creatures, emotions, industry, business and finance. The grammar topics are: irregular present tenses (2), irregular future tenses, irregular past participles and irregular feminine adjectives.

After seeing and hearing the words in a topic, you have four options to test what you have learnt: French to English, with and without multiple-choice answers, and English to French, also with and without multiple-choice answers. There are separate exercises for the grammar topics.

There are also three word games that draw their vocabulary randomly from any of the topics.

You can set your own targets for each of the exercises and the computer will remember the words for which you have reached your target. At any point you can view your work record, which you can also print out.
