Language Adventure Instinct Corporation 1998

Watch in awe as your kids begin speaking a foreign language without even realizing it. With over 1000 interactive exercises for comprehension, vocabulary, pronunciation, and composition, this provides a solid introduction to English, Spanish, French, Japanese, German, and Italian. Don't wait. Children are born with the ability to acquire language without actually having to learn it, but this ability decreases with age. It's aimed at kids aged 5 – 12, and is specially designed to take advantage of their linguistic sensitivity. Instead of having to learn grammar rules and vocabulary by rote, kids become engrossed in an animated story. In order to find out what happens next, they must narrate each scene and successfully complete tasks. With a focus on pronunciation and activities for comprehension, kids effortlessly acquire the sound patterns and grammar of a new language. With a story-telling format, the characters drive the learners through the six different stories, which are graduated and have common words and phrases in the target language. There are three learning-level settings: pre-reader, beginner, and advanced. A fourth option allows custom settings, and another option is "observer mode"; this can be very useful to just watch and listen to the stories. Each user can be registered according to his/her language level. There is a "Help" mode, which is represented by a professor icon. The program can also generate and print reports on each learner's progress. The contents of the exercises are put into four categories: Narration, Quiz, Author and Discover. Narration exercises work on pronunciation and vocabulary. After listening, students are required to repeat and record what was just heard, and they can immediately hear their own recordings. Quiz exercises teach comprehension. Students are asked to click on something by one of the characters. Author exercises are where students can try out the new language for themselves. Students are asked to create an animated movie and add to it their own narration in the foreign language. Discover exercises consist of hyperlinks interspersed throughout the lessons. Their purpose is to reinforce the foreign language. It was later made freeware.
