If you're willing to learn your way around the interface, this application makes a nice Spanish-language tutor. The program comes with a small deck of Spanish vocabulary flash cards that open as a cardfile, a quiz format.
Quiz cards appear in the first cardfile box. Answering correctly will send the card to the next box, while answering incorrectly or giving up sends it back to the first box. Scheduling options on the Cardfile menu let you set intervals for when you should go through each box to refresh your memory. You can download decks from the company's Web site or create your own. We downloaded several decks looking for multimedia content, but didn't find anything beyond images.
The New cards into cardfile at once option on the Compose menu lets you open any deck in quiz form. A radio button sets the cardfile to ask you for the front or the back, so you can use one deck to study Portuguese/English or English/Portuguese. The new version makes it a breeze to enter Unicode characters. With some effort learning how to use the program, users should be able to use VTrain (Vocabulary Trainer) to study many foreign languages.
VTrain helps you learn any foreign word forever with only 7 repetitions per year. It supports multilanguage edition, multimedia, and networking. The website offers free vocabulary cards in 40 languages. VTrain has been adopted by 50 universities. Version 5.2 build 107 includes unspecified updates.
