German Is Fun


USING a combination of graphic displays and word drills, German is Fun presents German vocabulary and phrases for beginners in a way reminiscent of a standard idiomatic phrase book. The program is divided into nine main topic sections which deal with the areas most likely to be of use to the holidaymaker or basic student.

The main menu provides a simple selection procedure for each topic. When a selection is made a set of options is offered which will allow the student to choose the picture only, the picture with test, phrases only or picture with phrases. The first option sets up a picture, item by item, showing the corresponding English and German words, while the second will test you on those words.

The program is very user-friendly, allowing exit from any section at will and, in the word-test section, providing the next letter in response to a question mark. The graphics are cheerful and well-drawn with some movement at certain points. It is a meticulously-devised program and, for anyone who has a basic grasp of German pronunciation will be extremely useful as a supplement to oral experience.
