Wanted to make a language program which was free kinda like an experiment! also i wanted to expand the idea of flash games to involve more learning! I hope that some people will enjoy it!

Vocab lessons included are:
Numbers, and Shapes

Tell me if any pronunciations are incorrect!

Bellissimo (i just know i spelled that wrong)

Sto imparando a parlare, questo aiuta molto, grazie.


This would work quite well for a student to be tested on basic italian words as it is multiple choice and presents the word at the top of the page and pronounces it out too, but as a learning program i dont think it works too well!, Not to say that this flash still isnt great, just mislabelled. Loved your three levels of testing and your deepth and length of each test was well done too. Overall a solid effort.

had fun

found it fun as a native English speaker, but the hard setting was just a repeat of the easy setting without the word/picture association to help you along However the rote memorization of vocabulary is a valid tool to aid in the learning of another language. Overall found it to be fun and informative if a little to easy, keep up the good work

Good but...

I don´t know Italian, but I´m Mexican, spanish and italian are very alike, so it could help people who speak similar languages, like me, to learn some words in italian, but saxons* , like most of the people that will see this game, will have no way to learn the words. It would be better if put the answers at the end of each level, so you can see why you got a question wrong.

*people who speak english natively.

thanks for your review! i am glad that this first version is getting great criticism. i think you are definitely right! this is not correctly teaching... it is more guess and checking! Thanks for you input

Not such a great flash

This is not a game, and it doesn't teach Italian. It's not visually attractive. And the use of fonts is horrible. This is just a flashcard program. There's no point using Flash to make this and sticking it on Newgrounds unless you take advantage of what Flash can do. Special effects, (more) colorful graphics, a scoring and progression system would be a start (i.e., basic minimum). . . It's not a piece of crap, but as far as Newgrounds goes, I don't see how this could be rated higher than 3/10.
