Latin Vocabulary Game - a concept

Postby Deses » Fri Jul 11, 2008 5:37 pm

Greetings, all.

I made a very simple vocabulary game in order to test out a method of learning foreign words that is based on combining the idea of a memory game and the concept of flashcards. I could very easily increase the number of words available in this program, but I would like to know it this approach is helpful at all.

I think it's helpful and pretty fun. Personally, I'd also like it if it kept score, so I could try to better each time. It also might be helpful if the current card for which you are seeking a match would be highlighted somehow, because when I was about halfway through I got a little confused about which card I was on, and with all the other ones lit up, it took a bit to sort out. I think it's definitely worth pursuing.
The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.
DownLOEBables - Free books from the Loeb Classical Library

Thank you. Your suggestions make a lot of sense!

I already have a database that I can use in order to make a pretty comprehensive vocabulary training program that covers all of Wheelock and beyond. User tracking is more complicated, of course. I guess, I will have to use cookies.

Excellent work Deses. Those adverbs are very difficult to remember, as you say.
