TEFL CALL PROGRAMMES: Here is some information about two programmes we have made to help students with irregular verbs or "the first certificate" Although they are humble dos programmes without pictures or fancy animation they are useful and are very easy to use.

Longer description: There are two sections, learn and test. In the learn section the students see a lists of infinitives graded according to level. When they choose an infinitive, the past and participle appear on the screen accompanied by my voice saying them.

In the test section the student must write the past and participle of the verb . For an added bit of conditioned response reinforcement, you hear encouragement if you get the answer correct and laughter if the answer is wrong. You can see your score during the tests and you are shown a list of your errors at the end. The students can also print lists of the verbs if they want to get away from the computer. You can choose to see help and instructions in either Spanish or English. The printed verb lists comes with a one word translation of the verbs in Spanish. Using a simple text processor the teacher can change this to any language. The no sound demo version comes with a sound tester so that you can see if the sound would work if you had the sound version.
