This is another language learner, like Memory with windows, that is also by the same person, and I also reviewed. This is called a vocab program, which makes a game out of learning. This particular vocab program, trains from English to Spanish, French, Italian, and several other combinations. You can choose a category of dining, or living; with sub-categories like breakfast, kitchens, dining out, etc.. Then the "game" begins.

There are 4 different colored puzzle pieces and foreign word scattered all over. Each of the 4 puzzle pieces have a title, like breakfast, cooking, spices, and kitchen. Its up to you to drag and drop each foreign phrase into the correct puzzle piece.

This one is harder than memory with windows, but its still not so hard, that even I can score some points; and I think this is a great way to learn the basics of another language. These guys prices for registration are great, and the extras he offers are great too.

So, try this out if you want to polish your language skills; and get it for the kids, for sure. One day they will even thank you!
