Vocaboly 3.0

A innovative vocabulary builder
Vocaboly is a software application used to learn the English language vocabulary using many learning methods.

User-friendly interface

The interface has a simple look but packs a great punch in functionality. All the main functions are placed in the left of the window for easy access. The first step in using the app is to choose an username and the desired book to study. The tool has three methods of study from which to choose from. You can use free study, a learning group or study cards. From the "Book" menu entry you can add a new book, import, export or manage your existing collection of books. If you want to know more about a particular word or just hear it, you can use the search function to look it up.

Free study

The "Word Ticker" option displays a series of words along with the sound associated to them. First define how many words you want to learn in the current session. Then using the built-in recall function, see what words you remembered. Moreover, the utility has a spell checker section where the previously displayed words are checked for spelling mistakes made by the user. If in turn you prefer to listen to the words and then type their correct form, use the "Listening" area. After the learning session has ended, take a multi-choice test to prove you know all the words assigned in that session.

Learn by playing games

The app has included two types of games to make learning more fun. The first is a card guessing game using your memory of the presented words, while the second uses speed typing to verify the information. The group study method allows up to 9 different study groups, while the study cards can include no more than 8 cards. The books found in the program include TOEFL, GMAT, VOA, SAT, GRE and U.S. State Capitals.

Conclusion

Overall, Vocaboly is a simple software application great for beginners who want to learn English words interactivelly. The tool did not crash during testing and system load is minimum.
