Spanish Touch Trainer is an immersive sentence translation game unlike any language app you've seen! See the YouTube demo video on our website! http://appocado.biz
The basic premise behind Spanish Touch Trainer is to engage the user with sentence construction, verb conjugation, and vocabulary broadening all within one elegant interface. It helps train you to produce the correct Spanish word and use it in the correct order. You are not spoon-fed a thick set of grammar rules, but rather gently guided to arrive at correct results by making mistakes, which is how we naturally learn.
"tackles the complex subject of verb conjugations in the simplest, clearest way imaginable." --M. Schusterman, theiphoneappreview.com
"Much more fun than slaving in front of text books." --Jennifer Allen, 148apps.com
"A fun and effective supplement to your Spanish studies. The focus of this niche app is verb conjugation, arguably the hardest part of learning Spanish for a native English speaker. Spanish Touch Trainer takes advantage of the iDevice functionality to take the monotony out of textbook study and drills. It has a beautiful user interface and feels game-like, though it is a serious learning tool." --Karen Freeman, AppAdvice.com
● All material created and verified by a native speaker / linguist / Spanish professor.
● Verb conjugations are deconstructed within the context of real sentences. This is a new way to help you learn and it is unlike any other Spanish app out there!
● No boring flashcards! You become familiar with both the grammar and vocabulary through contextual associations.
● A moving cursor on the English sentence lets you easily see how the word ordering changes with the Spanish. This technique will help you master both general sentence construction and pronoun usage and placement, which will take your Spanish to the next level!
● Upon completion of each sentence, you can listen to a recording of the sentence from a native Spanish speaker.
● Reference material included: verb conjugations, associative noun and adjective dictionaries.
● Exercises are either beginner or advanced sets. Beginner sentences contain only present tense verb forms and advanced covers everything else.
● Designed to force the Spanish learner to choose the correct word within sentence contexts. We call these "conflict" choices where you must choose between ser/estar or por/para, for example. The most common conflicts for English learners of Spanish are all included!
● A randomization engine ensures that your choices for each exercise change each time you play!
● Enabled with high-resolution graphics for Retinal displays.
We're working hard to bring your ideas to future versions of SpanishTT as soon as possible!
