leVocab is a new web and mobile-web based application for helping French, German and Spanish language students widen their vocabulary, learn noun genders and practice pronunciation.
A colour and sound system has been developed by leVocab to help learners to remember noun genders. Blue for masculine and pink for feminine. Also, both a masculine voice and a feminine voice are used to improve association.
leVocab is free for teachers and tutors who can use it in the classroom to practise with students. Full access for students/parents is very reasonably priced at €4.99 for a one year subscription - this gives access to over 1,500 nouns in each of three languages - French, German & Spanish.
According to Páraic Slattery, leVocab's co-founder,
“Learning genders has been a perennial problem for language students and leVocab goes a long way towards addressing this. Using leVocab, students can now widen their vocabulary and learn the genders at the same time.”
Launched in November of this year, leVocab is well worth a try!!!
