As a condition of such a license, you agree: the program immediately informs whether the answer is correct or false. The Settings screen allows the student to select whether a sound is played or not by clicking on a response. At the bottom of the window, the program displays all the screens of the current lesson. If all the answers for this screen are correct, the button for this screen turns green.
If some answers are correct, the frame of the button turns green, but the screen number itself turns orange. If all the answers for a screen are wrong, the button turns orange. This applies to all lessons, with the exception of verification and milestone lessons, which are treated as tests. In these lessons, the buttons for each screen all remain brown. In all lessons, there is a button in the bottom right of the window that can be moved to see how many answers were correctly, incorrect or not. Each time you click on a response, a point is specified. At the end of the lesson, the total number of correct, false or skipped answers will be displayed with the percentage of correct answers for this lesson. If too many questions have been answered poorly, the program suggests that the learner repeat the lesson. Level 2 provides a total of approximately 24 hours to teach the user to “navigate their environment while relying on the essential vocabulary and language structure of Level 1.” More grammar is covered, including past and future times and forms of imperative. Issues such as itineraries, letter writing, work concepts, excuses, emotions and art criticism are also addressed.
As at Level 1, each unit is followed by a 10-minute “milestone.” In version 3, there are four units per language level. Each unit has four basic lessons lasting approximately 30 minutes. The student then moves on to one of the following teaching methods: pronunciation, writing, vocabulary, grammar, listening, reading, speech. The milestone is an exercise at the end of each unit where students apply what they have learned in the unit. Each lesson ends with a review of the content of this lesson, and each unit ends with an important step that is a simulated conversation that contains the content of the unit. Using simple vocabularies such as simple greetings, “boy,” “girl,” “man” and “woman,” which move through numbers, comparisons, adjectives, names, conjugation of verbs and stories. Each unit also contains a simulated ten-minute conversation, called a milestone. Level 3 provides instructions to help them “connect to the world around you based on the language and conversational skills you`ve developed at Levels 1 and 2.” In addition to the extension of grammar, learned at Levels 1 and 2, Level 3 provides a deeper vocabulary, including botanical terms, culinary concepts, how to express detailed opinions and judgments, and how to discuss politics, religion and economics.
