Now here is really a twist on the game tetris, the pieces fall beside the game, cause we don't care about them! In the playing field, though, these foreign phrases fall, and you have to type the translation before it hits the bottom. At first, I thought I was really in trouble; but when the phrase hits the bottom, it gives you the english word. It will also drop the same word more than once, so you can learn, and when you get it right all the words that are the same will disappear. The only other problem that it gave me, during the first game, it wasn't till I lost without a point, I realized that they wanted me to type 'the' first, like 'the egg', 'the roll', etc. However, it will tolerate spelling errors.

As always, all these vocab programs by Johannes Unneswehr support Lesson Maker, all have great support, really good other programs, and fantastic prices. Come on, we all can afford this one, and besides, you might learn something. If I can, anyone can!
