Love, love, loved this site!! I am trying to learn French, so I will definately
remember this website!! It was so easy to use and it was so cute in teaching
French (along with other languages) vocabulary. It included activities such as
fill in the blank and flashcards to help better understand the words. As in my
class, pictures are a great way to learn vocabulary!! Two thumbs up!!

A good site for a beginner (even an adult!). I was challenged without getting
lost in the verbage (or directions in French).

I really liked this site. The pictures of animals and everday things helps to
visualize the French word with the object. A great reference tool.

What a wonderful site for language learning students! I really enjoyed exploring
the website, especially using the Italian and Spanish language sources. This
site is immensely valuable to ESL students and to English native speakers
looking to learn a second language. Certainly, a very useful resource for both
home and school use. I even got my two boys using it, in particular my older son
who's in a Spanish class. Overall, the site is easy to use and straightforward.
It did not take long for the site to make the transition from one activity to
another. The only problem I found was in knowing whether or not I was
pronouncing the Italian words right. Therefore, an auditory component would
certainly enhance the site's effectiveness.

Wow! This is an incredible website for beginning ESL students. I only
spent about 10 minutes reviewing this site, but in that time I was able to see
what a valuable resource this can be for both students and teachers. It is user
friendly and the lessons are very simple to initiate.
If you are an instructor with in-class web access, this could be a valuable
resource. There are a number of vocabulary building exercises on this site
that students can easily access. There is an A-Z picture dictionary for the
most basic instruction...matching the a picture and a word for vocabulary
acquisition. There are fun word games to play to enhance word recognition such
as word scrambles and fill-in CLOZE type exercises.
The website is easy to access as are the lessons within the site. Beginning
web-users would be able to access this material without any difficulty. It is
truly a 5 star site for beginners.

I spent considerable time with each of the exercises. I enjoyed the "stinky
spelling" the most, as this seemed to be the most challenging. The site is great
because it offers other languages, the flashcard pictures are clear, and the
ability to be selective on what to study, whether it is objects all starting
with one letter, or by a particular category, kept my interest.

Very easy to use. The colors in the pictures used are greatly detailed. The only
problem would be is that a lot of words are not included. I took the time to
type in different words in order to see pictures of the words and they were not
available. Very simple selections of words are used and would only suggest this
site for elementary learnings.

I spent one hour trying the various activities and links connected to this site.
I feel this site is a good supplementary vocabulary resource for ESL students
in an elementary classroom. A student in early stages of English language
development can benefit from the variety of activities offered while proceeding
independently and at their own pace. I particularly liked the
Fill-in-the-blanks activity, and the way in which a choice is given to the
student as to how the blanks can be placed in the words: beginning letters,
vowels, consonants, or anywhere.
I feel the word category section could be enlarged to enhance vocabulary
building. The category ?Body Parts? could be expanded to include the words
head, arm, hand, leg, and stomach ? major parts of the body. Various rooms of a
house could be included along with the kitchen category: bedroom, bathroom,
living room, garage, and dining room. An audio portion might also aid in the
students word recognition and comprehension. Students could both see and hear
the words while using the picture dictionary.

Technical Remarks:

I found this site to be very easy to use. The program is very straightforward
and easy to understand. Anyone with a basic understanding of how to navigate a
website should have no problem using the program. In the elementary classroom,
a teacher could easily show a student how to move through the various
activities.
